Scotland boasts a hugely varied coastline and a rich offering of inland waters in both rural and urban settings for both visitors and locals to enjoy.
The North East of Scotland is host to an amazing array of coastlines and rivers which are greatly valued and cherished by communities and visitors alike. These assets play an important part in the visitor experience, offering boat trips, activities, fishing opportunities and active holidays, while the many nature reserves across the area are home to a tremendous variety of flora, fauna and wildlife.
Water has shaped the area’s history: from fishing and farming to whisky and wave power, thereby influenced its culture, its stories and a way of life. Make time during your visit to explore and enjoy the coasts and waters of the area.
