ABERDEEN, also known as the Silver City with Golden Sands, sits on the northeast coastal plain of Scotland. Industrialisation and the discovery of North Sea oil in the 1970s has transformed the region into the Energy Capital of Europe. Despite this, the region’s coastline remains unspoilt. From St Cyrus on the edge of Grampian, via the turning point at Kinnaird Head, and on to Findhorn on the Moray coast, Aberdeenshire’s coastline runs for more than 150 miles and covers everything from high cliffs strewn with wildflowers to secluded coves and long sandy dunes.
It’s little surprise that the region has been a popular holiday spot for the royals for centuries.
