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.
