Gateway to Cairngorms and Highlands

Set in the heart of Cairngorm National Park, the UK’s largest national park is 3,800 km in size; that’s bigger than the Lake District and Loch Lomond and the Trossachs.

The landscape is an unbeatable mix of rocky mountains, wild moorland and glistening lochs with Royal Deeside at the heart of it all as well as boasting a variety of activities set against a backdrop of the breath-taking and protected landscape.

Scotland’s flora and fauna coming back to life

For those who love the colours of spring, the Cairngorms can capture the heart of any amateur photographer.  Head to The Muir of Dinnet for some stunning spring displays, right on your doorstep. 

Wildlife Returns  

Autumn is an exciting time in the Scottish landscape: the red kites return to the homeland, the Scottish crossbill starts to show itself more often and Grouse start their mating displays in the ‘lek’ to attract hens.

VisitScotland’s spring wildlife e-book details all the specific spots to see the best nature at its best. 


Seasonal produce

As well as the bright colours of Spring, it also brings in the bounty of local produce.  One of the best places to get your hands on it is at the monthly Aboyne Farmers’ Market.

There you will find more than 25 stallholders who will brave all elements to bring you the very best seasonal fare from their farms, orchards and kitchens. For more information, see: https://www.facebook.com/aboynefarmersmarket/.
