Welcome to Aberdeenshire

Situated in the North-east of Scotland, Aberdeenshire is a beautiful and historic region, encapsulating the rugged mountains of the Cairngorms and breath-taking coastal scenery.

One of the most dynamic and unique regions of the country, Aberdeenshire is a great place to live, work and visit. Aberdeenshire has performed consistently strongly across a wide range of indicators for a number of years and the latest survey discovered that residents now enjoy at the best quality of life in rural Scotland.
