Aberdeenshire Tourist and Visitor Information

Aberdeenshire stretches from "one of the last great places on earth" (the Cairngorms) to "one of the world's top-rated coastlines". So says National Geographic. 

The VisitAberdeenshire website has a wealth of information to help you plan your visit to the area. We have also created a Visitor Management Plan for 2022 to detail how we plan to manage the expected visitor hotspots across Aberdeenshire this year.

A range of Aberdeenshire Tourist Trails can be explored; Historic Bridges, Castles, Coastal, Secret Malts, Victorian Heritage, Stone Circles and Pictish Stones, with further information also available on VisitScotland.com. We also have the Macduff Marine Aquarium

You might also find it useful to locate local Visitor Information Centres, beachesfarmers' markets and public toilets in the region. 

A taster of what you can experience in Aberdeenshire is the majestic Royal Deeside – also known as ‘Can Do Country’.

'The Wild North East – Scotland’s Natural Gem' is a short film promoting the wonderful wildlife and wild places in the region, from the Cairngorms to the coast. It was commissioned by the North East Scotland Biodiversity Partnership, of which the council is an active member and supporter.
