Aberdeen(shire) & Moray

This magnificent region between the mighty Cairngorms, the Moray Firth and the North Sea is a treasure house for castle baggers, walkers and nature lovers. Here the Picts held sway, here Robert The Bruce harried his enemies the Comyns and it was in this region that James Graham, 1st Marquess of Montrose clashed with the fanatical Covenanters.

Aberdeen(shire) & Moray consists of gently undulating farmland, deep gloomy forests and grey blue mountains on the far horizon.
