Aberdeenshire

4.3
One of Scotland’s most fascinating regions, Aberdeenshire features a stunning coastline with vast sandy beaches and idyllic fishing villages. This thriving region of fertile farmland and moors is perhaps best known around the world for its production of Angus beef, as well as for a number of well-preserved castles scattered across the countryside. The valley of the River Spey is lined by world-famous whiskey distilleries, which are not only major tourist attractions, but also part of a robust regional industry. Those on vacation in Aberdeenshire will find that the region boasts a strong musical tradition in the form of "bothy ballads," originally sung by farm workers in the region’s Doric dialect. Native speakers consider Doric to be more expressive than English, with many local writers still using elements of the dialect in their work. Our United Kingdom tour itinerary planner allows you to plan your trip to Aberdeenshire and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
