Away from the region's main urban centre, Aberdeen city, the landscape is predominantly rural and coastal, with some of the most unspoiled scenery in the whole of Scotland. Agriculture and fishing are the main industries, so it's no surprise that the majority of Aberdeenshire holiday lettings are traditional Scottish stone cottages, set on farmland or close to the sea.

Beaches are one of the main attractions in the area, and there are mile-long stretches of golden sand at Balmedie, just north of Aberdeen city. Wooden walkways across the sand dunes provide easy access to the shore. South of Aberdeen, Cove Bay has a small harbour, pebble beach and plenty of opportunities for rock-pooling.
