The Aberdeenshire region
Natural and untouched, a place that has been unspoilt by the demands of tourism or commercial interests, the Highlands of Scotland is one of Britain's most beautiful and stunning holiday destinations.
Here you will find Britain's highest mountain ranges, miles of open countryside and a multitude of lochs; all this and an untouched coastline with picturesque coves and pristine clean beaches.
This is the place for a great ‘outdoors' holiday with plenty of activities for all ages; including wonderful walking and cycling, canoeing, fishing, golf and sailing, beach combing and wildlife watching. The list goes on.
There are also lots of historical sites and ancient towns to discover in the Highlands which you'll find throughout the region as you travel along its quiet and beautiful country roads.
Situated right on the edge of the sea, at the bottom of a small winding lane that leads down from the cliffs, Gardenstown is a quintessential fishing village which oozes charm and tranquillity. The small winding streets, picturesque harbour and old stone cottages seem untouched by time. The spectacular views, headland and bays have been the setting for a number of television programmes and the village has become a haven for artists. Sandy beaches and rocky coves make it an ideal location for all ages. Dolphins and seals are regular visitors and the area is renowned for its wealth of sea-birds. Golf, fishing, riding, sailing, canoeing, surfing, walking and cycling are all regular local pastimes. Gardenstown also hosts a number of special events and activities during the summer months. The nearby town of Macduff has an excellent aquarium centre, and some of the finest championship golf courses are within easy reach. Wonderful coastal walks abound – there is a lovely walk direct from the property along the shoreline to the pretty seaside village of Crovie. The historic town of Banff is within easy driving distance. Fishing for mackerel off the pier, sitting on the harbour wall watching the amazing sunsets over the sea, enjoying a tasty meal at the harbour restaurant; all these will provide many happy holiday memories
