The Scotland region

Aboyne is a delightful town in the heart of Royal Deeside, an area famed for its unspoilt beauty.

Midway between the sea at Aberdeen and the mountains of the Cairngorms National Park, this is an area with something for everyone who wishes a break from the pressures of a busy world

Aboyne

He charming burgh of Aboyne lies close to the heart of Royal Deeside. Standing next to the River Dee and surrounded by attractive hills, the town is complemented by delightful scenery. With the Cairngorms National Park a short drive to the west, it is a popular tourist destination. With Aberdeen a pleasant 30 mile drive to the east, it is also popular with commuters. A lively community is supported by excellent shopping and other facilities.

For three weeks in July the theatre and Community Centre play a key role in the acclaimed Aboyne and Deeside Festival. On the first Saturday in August one of the great Highland games is held on the green at the centre of Aboyne. The late Queen Mother was a patron of these games.

The Aboyne area boasts excellent sports and other facilities. The River Dee is one of the great Scottish salmon rivers. The nearby gliding club offers some of finest gliding conditions in Europe. The Muir of Dinnet and Glen Tanar, both National Nature Reserves just west of Aboyne, allow the opportunity for pleasant excursions among exceptional countryside that contains a wide variety of wildlife.

Aboyne itself was founded in 1671 by the first Earl of Aboyne. The surrounding country has much of historical interest including the Balnagowan 'necropolis', a collection of nearly 1000 cairns. Just to the east of the burgh, both the villages of Lumphanan and Kincardine o' Neil have links to the battle in which King Malcolm Canmore defeated Macbeth in 1057. Today, the scene is much more peaceful but Aboyne and its surrounding villages retain their fascinating appeal.

“Excellent base for exploring Deeside”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2012

We have just returned from our first holiday in Aberdeenshire with our dog and teenage daughter. We loved it....The chalet is the perfect base with so much to do and see nearby. The accommodation was outstanding a real home from home with everything you could possibly need. High standard of decor all round. Murdo and Lynn were so welcoming which was very much appreciated. Thoroughly recommended.

“Honoured to have been the first guests - Loved it!”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2012

Murdo & Lynn have thought of everything in this beautiful, brand new chalet. Everything is finished with care and to the highest standard, and we loved our short stay. The hosts are a very accomodating, lovely couple who made us feel very welcome and that nothing was too much bother. A great base for visiting Aboyne, Ballater, Braemar and the surrounding Royal Deeside area.
