Explore the hills and mountains of Aberdeen City and Shire and discover a hill walker and climbers’ playground. Admire breathtaking scenery, look out for remarkable wildlife and enjoy thrilling activities like mountain biking and skiing.

The Cairngorms National Park is the largest National Park in Britain and is home to five of the six highest mountains in the UK. Scale the summits of these rugged peaks and take in some of the most breathtaking alpine scenery in the world while keeping a look out for red deer, ospreys and gold eagles.

Discover a winter sports wonderland at the Lecht, a ski and snow boarding resort located 2,090 ft above sea level amid the beauty of the Eastern Cairngorms. Whether you're an expert skier and boarder or a novice hitting the slopes for the first time, the Lecht offers a fantastic selection of runs of varying degrees of difficulty.

Some of the region’s other celebrated mountains include Mount Keen, Scotland’ most easterly Munro and Lochnagar which Queen Victoria described as the ‘jewel of all mountains’.

One of the region’s most popular climbs is to the Mither Tap o' Bennachie, a rocky granite summit surrounded by the remains of an ancient hill fort, which rewards climbers with amazing views of the Aberdeenshire countryside.

If you'd prefer something less strenuous, why not make your way to the top of Scolty Hill which, in spite of its modest height, remains one of the region’s most highly visited peaks. Crowned with a 20m tall tower, it affords walkers with splendid views of the Dee Valley and the Grampian Mountains.
