> See all hotels in Aberdeenshire

Aberdeenshire, one of the northernmost Scottish counties is renowned for its wild and beautiful scenery and landscapes, almost wholly untouched by visible cultivation. Best Western has one hotel in Aberdeenshire itself and one within Aberdeen, a location that acts as a perfect base for exploring the rich surrounding land. Book our Aberdeenshire hotel for a memory-packed week of exploration and hiking.

Town and city breaks in Aberdeenshire

Banff is a small and interesting market town with a rich heritage that includes palatial houses and medieval bridges. Those who enjoy being in the great outdoors should head to Banchory, where the River Dee is full of plump Scottish salmon. One of the best things to do is to plan a mini road-trip from your Aberdeenshire hotel. Stop off and explore some of the local towns such as Stonehaven, Ellon, Turrif, Fraserburgh and Huntly.

Holidays in the Aberdeenshire countryside

This is castle country and a favourite location for the Royal Family to come visit. In winter, the area is a hub for skiers at Lecht and Glenshee, whereas in summer Land Rover safaris tour Caledonian Forest for rare capercaillie-spotting.
The market town of Inverurie is a great place to have a quick bite before launching yourself fully into the gorgeous Scottish countryside. The town is surrounded by rolling hills and offers numerous opportunities for fishing, birdwatching, and hiking. 

Arnhall Moss is Nature Reserve located near Westhill, just 8 miles west of Aberdeen. This is a fantastic place to explore the local fauna and flora or to simply follow one of the various signposted walks that will take you through the marvellous birch forests, bogs, and wetlands – a fantastic afternoon before returning to your Aberdeenshire hotel.

Beach holidays in Aberdeenshire 

Although Aberdeenshire is known for its stunning inland scenery, the Scottish county is also a great destination for those who love coastal towns and beach holidays. Aberdeenshire has nearly 130 miles of beautiful coastline, and it is not rare to find deserted beaches where you can relax on the sand, enjoy the scenery, or practise watersports.

Attractions in Aberdeenshire

With more than 40 courses, golf breaks are a popular activity in Aberdeenshire. The best and most scenic courses are in Oldmeldrum, Aberdeen, and Macduff, where magnificent mountain landscapes tower in the distance and unfold before your eyes as you progress through a golf session with a family member or friend.
There are more than 300 castles in Aberdeenshire, and a visit to one of them makes for a great family day out. The castles at Fyvie, Craigievar, and ,strong>Crathes, in particular, come highly recommended. Children will surely enjoy a visit to places like Inverurie's Archaeolink Prehistory Park, the Conoco Natural History Centre, and the Cullerlie Farm Park at Netherwoodside. Despite its apparent remoteness, there are several highly popular annual events in Aberdeenshire, like Aberdeen's Book Fair, Stoneheaven's Fireball Festival, the Highland Games at Cornhill and Oldmeldrum, and Portsoy's Traditional Boat Festival. Book a Best Western hotel in Aberdeenshire to experience all of this and more - a magnificent short UK break.
