Tucked away in the north east of Scotland, a holiday apartment Aberdeen & Grampian is the perfect way to get the most out of this varied and exciting region. Active people will love walking the coastal trail, climbing mountains such as Mount Keen or Lochnagar, watersports and cycling. Take a puffin cruise along the Moray Firth coast, relax on Lossiemouth beach or visit some museums: Aberdeen Maritime Museum, Grampian Transport Museum, or the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses in Fraserburgh are all very enjoyable. Ancient Pictish sites can be found all around the area, some good examples are Sueono’s Stone and the Burghead fort and well. Lossiemouth on the north coast of Moray is an ideal break from the stress of modern life, with its sandy beaches, picturesque streets and opportunities for watersports and coastal and countryside walks.
Fans of whiskey will surely want a holiday cottage Aberdeen to visit as many distilleries as possible – or perhaps you’d rather get right to the heart of things and renting a cottage in Dufftown, Aberlour or Keith. Even non whiskey lovers will appreciate the more famous distilleries, such as Glenlivet. Alongside many distilleries, Dufftown is home to the Whiskey Museum, which holds nosing and tasting evenings, and the Whiskey Shop, which sells hundreds of single malts.
As well as producing a great deal of great Speyside scotch, the area has a number of castles worth exploring. Ballindaloch, for example, has been continuously inhabited since 1546, and Fyrie Castle is said to be haunted by a phantom trumpeter and the Green Lady. And who could forget Balmoral – located in the heart of Cairngorns National Park, this is the grand summer residence of Queen Elizabeth II. Why not rent a holiday apartment Aberdeen and a car, and go on a tour of as many castles as you can?
