Holiday cottages in Aberdeenshire, Scotland's unspoiled rural nook
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.
Taste some of Scotland's best produce in Aberdeenshire
Aberdeen Angus beef is probably the best known product from the region, but Aberdeenshire has a wealth of Scottish produce, often reflected on the menus of local restaurants.
The region's farms produce high quality vegetables, and Peterhead on the eastern coast of Aberdeenshire is Scotland's biggest fishing port. Don't forget to try the famous Aberdeenshire buttery - a rich breakfast pastry similar to a croissant.
Activities with children
If the weather's not good enough for the beach, Crathes Castle near Banchory has turrets and winding staircases to explore, as well as formal gardens, woodland walks and an adventure playground.
Alternatively, Doonies Farm features rare breeds of farming animals from Scotland and abroad. Children will be able to admire black pigs, Indian runner ducks and many other species.
Things to see and do in Aberdeenshire
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.
Take a short drive to visit the stunning ruins of medieval Dunottar Castle, set on a headland, where you can enjoy coastal views and experience Scotland's history in a vivid setting. For a more sedate natural setting, seek out Haddo Country Park, with its miles of walks and cycling paths around the estate.
