If it's a mix of culture and natural beauty you're after, then look no further than Aberdeen. Lose yourself in the beauty of Cairngorms National Park or relax in the beauty of Johnstone Gardens - Aberdeen's hidden gem.
For something a little more cultural, there's a variety of places to explore, including the maritime museum, Dunnotar Castle and the local musical talents at Aberdeen Music Hall.
Cairngorms National Park
Home to five of the six highest summits in the UK, this wild mountain landscape takes in some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain. The park offers adventure to keen hikers with miles of woodland, moors and mountains to explore. If hiking isn't for you, there is an easier, but no less spectacular route - take the Cairngorm Mountain Railway up to the edge of the Cairngorm plateau.
'Aberdeen's hidden gem' as described by most that visit. Hidden away in the west of Aberdeen, the gardens are home to beautiful ponds, a variety of plant life and birds.
Visit the gardens for some peace, tranquility and relaxation.
Take a walk along the coast and take in the views, before heading to Dunnottar Castle for a history lesson. Perched on the cliff tops, this stunning ruined fortress holds many historic tales. Holding memories of guests including William Wallace and Mary Queen of Scots, visit the castle to find out its secrets.

The award winning museum houses a unique collection covering ship building, fast sailing ships, fishing and port history.
