Please find below a selection of self-catering holiday cottages to rent in the Aberdeenshire area.
Spectacular countryside, an impressive coastline, Scotland's third largest city and an array of visitor attractions... just some of the things you'll enjoy when you stay in our Aberdeenshire cottages.
Every activity imaginable is on offer, from the thrills of off-road driving, rafting, hang-gliding and canoeing, to more traditional country pursuits like shooting, stalking and salmon fishing. In winter, the region transforms into a playground for snow sports' enthusiasts - try Glenshee for extensive skiing and snowboarding facilities and The Lecht for families and beginners.
Those of you keen to perfect your swing will be pleased to know there are 45 golf courses in the area - Inchmarlo, Banchory and Aboyne in Royal Deeside, all worthy of a mention. For history and culture, travel 10,000 years in one day at the fascinating Archaeolink Prehistory Park, or follow Aberdeenshire's magnificent Castle Trail.
Enjoy city life? Then head for Aberdeen, a vibrant, cosmopolitan city famous for its beautiful granite architecture, West End boutiques, award-winning restaurants and a thriving modern arts scene. Children, meanwhile, will have hours of fun at Codona's Amusement Park at Aberdeen Beach.
When it comes to eating and drinking, Aberdeenshire is affectionately known as 'Scotland's Larder' and guarantees some truly mouth-watering delights. Highlights not to be missed include Aberdeen Angus beef, shortbread, ice-cream and, of course, malt whisky.
No Aberdeenshire cottage holiday would be complete without a visit to the Cairngorms National Park, where you'll discover breathtaking natural beauty rich in wildlife and an abundance of attractions.
In fact, an Aberdeenshire cottage holiday will captivate the whole family!
