Cairngorms National Park

City & Country - Aberdeen, Cairngorms & Coast

From the hustle and bustle of the Granite City to the quiet calm of the north-east coast and majesty of the Cairngorms, this compact trip is the perfect mix of culture, food & drink and stunning scenery.

Aberdeen's enviable location right in the middle of the north-east coast of Scotland makes it the perfect starting point for the ultimate city & country itinerary.

Mountains, beaches and wildlife (marine and land-based) will be the highlights of the tranquil country sections, whilst you'll have plenty to see and do by day and by night in the city of Aberdeen.

It's the perfectly balanced trip, and with an international airport in Aberdeen, it's even doable in a long weekend.
