Aberdeenshire is home to over 50 golf courses, so where better to tee off? Must-see courses are Royal Aberdeen – the sixth oldest club in the world; Braemar, Scotland’s highest 18 hole course; and Inverallochy, which boasts views of the sea from every hole.



Aberdeenshire is home to some of the best fishing and angling in the world. River fishing fans will love the world’s top spring salmon river, the River Dee and the trout-rich River Don. After something more challenging? Try coarse fishing in Loch Skene or sea angling in one of the many harbours dotted along the coastline.

Skiing and snowboarding

The Cairngorms National Park is home to three ski centres. Families and beginners will love The Lecht; Glenshee is home to one of the most challenging black runs around; and the kickers and rails at Cairngorm Mountain attract some of Britain’s best snowboarders.



Bennachie is one of the most popular hill ranges in North East Scotland, and a must for walkers. There are several trail options to choose from, ranging from peaceful forest walks to challenging summit walks and long distance routes.



It may not have the year-round sunshine associated with the world’s more famous surfing hotspots, but Aberdeen Beach is a surfer’s paradise. With great breaks for seasoned pros and surfing lessons available for beginners, it’s the perfect way to experience Scotland’s coastline.
