Oil-rich Aberdeen is the only major city in the north-east of Scotland and country's third largest.
Bordered by the River Dee in the south, much of Central Aberdeenshire is made up of a hotchpotch of agricultural lands dotted with small settlements, and carved up by green valleys such as Strathmore. Commuter towns for Aberdeen such as Inverurie have grown up along the main routes inland, but the region is generally quiet and unspoilt. This is increasingly the case as you head east towards the great mass of the Grampian Mountains, rising up to the edge of the Cairngorms.
