Aberdeen City and Shire has no shortage of beautiful parks and gardens. Explore the magnificent Cairngorms National Park, wander around the elegant formal gardens of grand country estates and uncover peaceful green spaces in the heart of the Granite City.

The largest National Park in Britain, the Cairngorms National Park is one of the best locations for wildlife watching in the UK, while the 230 acre Aden Country Park is a great place to spend a day outdoors with plenty of nature trails, woodlands and even an adventure playground.

Visit in summer and soak up the dazzling colours and scents of the carefully tended landscaped gardens and grounds of splendid historic homes and castles. The charming Victorian gardens of the Royal Family’s beloved Balmoral, the spectacular herbaceous borders of the Great Garden at Pitmedden House and the 18th century walled garden of Fyvie Castle are just a handful of the horticultural delights found in Aberdeenshire.

Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city of Aberdeen in spacious urban parks and gardens. Spend a sunny day relaxing in Duthie or Hazlehead Park and enjoy the flower beds of Rubislaw and Queens Terrace Gardens in full bloom. In colder weather you can retreat inside the Duthie Park Winter Gardens, home to the largest indoor collection of plants and flowers in Europe.

Take a look through the listings and discover more about the parks and gardens of Aberdeen City and Shire.
