Scotland has long been celebrated in paintings, verse, prose and song and why not, with such inspiring scenery, it is easy to understand why.
North East Scotland is no exception to this, as the area is blessed with its fair share of unspoilt and special landscape.From the highest mountain tops, down through the stunning valleys and glens and fresh rolling landscapes, until reaching the ancient and rugged coastline, the area really has the best of both environments and worlds.
A wonderful place to live, work and of course to visit, with its spectacular scenery and vast areas of natural paradise. Home to more than 100 species of rare and endangered animals and plants, the chances are that you will see a few during your visit.
From the skies, to the hillside or down by the ambling rivers or the crashing waves of the sea, step quietly and you may encounter the wildlife for yourself.
