The Aberdeenshire region
Surrounded on two sides by 100 miles of unspoilt coastline and on the third by the 4,000-foot tops cairngorms, Aberdeenshire offers sand dunes and vertiginous cliffs, mountain and heather moor, granite towns, sturdy slate-roofed villages and local folk sure of their own special culture - and all ready with a genuine welcome.
From the Cairngorms down across the rolling farmland, this is a place cut by delightful valleys and winding rivers - the Dee, Don, Deveron, Ugie and Ythan.
This is in many ways the heartland of what people expect Scotland to be - malt whisky, salmon and trout-stocked rivers, golf links, moors home to stag grouse and eagle, castle at every corner, Highland Games and unpretentious people with very individual speech and identity.
Aberdeenshire is the perfect place whatever the season and whatever your interests.
The winter snow conditions at the Lecht and Cairnwell can be excellent and during 2009/10 accumulations compared favourably with the Alps! After an après-ski ceilidh, dark skies provide ideal sky-watching conditions for stars and never-to-be forgotten Northern Lights.
Spring is heralded in February by snowdrop carpeted in woodlands such as Crathes Castle and in March by first flowering of the daffodils at Haddo House.
Summer events commence at the end of May with the Banffshire Coastal Partnership's visual arts festival – COAST - at venues in Banff, Macduff, Whitehills and Portsoy.
Next there is The first weekend in July sees the 17th Scottish Traditional Boat Festival when historic Portsoy harbour is the venue for a plethora of small sailing craft, steam launches and restored Fiffies and Zulus.
In addition there is an excellent Food Fayre and traditional international folk music from NE Scotland, the Northern Isles, Scandinavia and the Continent.
On the first Sunday and Monday in August all roads lead to Turriff Show at the Haughs Turriff. Turra is the largest two-day show in Scotland and welcomes in excess of 35,000 visitors and exhibitors.
As well as the livestock lines with the best of the North East's animals, there is a full arena programme each afternoon and evening.
The Industrial Exhibition Tent and Food Producers Hall are outstanding and then there are all the exhibitor stands catering for country living.
Wherever one is visiting Northern Scotland there are scenic routes to Aberdeenshire:
•from Dundee take the A90 to the Howe o' The Mearns
• from Perth take the A93 to Royal Deeside
• from Aviemore take the A939 to Donside
• from Fochabers take either the A96 to Huntly or the coastal A98
