Ranger Service

Welcome To Aberdeenshire Council Ranger Service


Get active this summer with the Ranger Service
The nights are getting shorter, the days are getting warmer and summer is just around the corner. This year get out and about, explore a bit more and improve your health and well-being at the same time, by going along to some of the Ranger Service events. The Rangers’ 2015 Summer Programme launches at Easter, with a mix of family favourites and new events for you to try across Aberdeenshire.

We have a team of six rangers based throughout Aberdeenshire, and two Wardens at the Bennachie Centre, to help visitors and residents explore and enjoy our rich natural and cultural heritage.

In common with other Ranger Services in Scotland, we have three main aims;

  • To provide a warm welcome and provide support to help people enjoy the outdoors.
  • To increase awareness, understanding, care and responsible use of the natural and cultural heritage.
  • To support the sustainable management and use of the outdoors to meet a range of social, economic and environmental objectives.

You can find out more about your Area Ranger and their area by clicking on the map on the Contacts page.

Details of our events can be found on the Events link, or view our current seasonal programme .

See our Schools and Groups page for information specific to schools and other educational/children's/organised groups.
