North East Scotland - There’s something about the scale and grandeur of the place, between the mountains and the sea. You can roam for miles and miles across great estates, expanses of moorland, ancient Caledonian forests, rolling farmland, vast dunes, wide sandy beaches and expansive coastlines. It’s a place of big skies and wide horizons, loved for its fresh clear air and the quality of its light. In summer, days are near endless, sunsets stretch out, darkness is brief.
The hand of history has touched the land, with ancient sites and symbols that mark this as a heartland of the ancient Picts. In the millennia that followed, no fewer than 300 castles were planted here, and many can still be seen or visited to this day. You can still hear words from an original Scots languages – Doric – and feel its distinctive culture alive in its genial “couthie” people and its “affa fine” traditions – not least the fiddle-playing, the bothy ballads and the highland gatherings.
