The North East

Land of Castles, Aberdeen, Royal Deeside and Cairngorm Mountains

The north east of Scotland contrasts with the west in terms of geology and climate. The rugged mountains of the west give way to the gently rolling hills of Angus where soft fruit grows, giving the appearance of French vineyards.

Between Angus and Aberdeen lies rich fertile land in an area called the Mearns, made famous in the novel, 'Sunset Song'. This produces barley for the whisky industry and is the origin of Aberdeen Angus beef cattle, still an important industry today, due to the rich pasture.

The coastal towns and cities grew from their proximity and dependency on the North Sea for trade, fishing and oil. This is also castle country, from the imposing Dunnottar Castle to the many fortified castles of turrets and towers.
