The North East of Scotland is a stunning coastal region with plenty of beauty for you to take in. From our gorgeous beaches to our historic fishing villages, travelling along the northeastern coastline is an absolute joy. After a busy day sightseeing, be sure to sample our local food and drink. We’re a friendly bunch and we do love to welcome folk who are visiting our lovely region! If you’re coming with the whole family, you’ll want to buy a Pass and visit the Macduff Marine Aquarium to teach the kids about marine life along this stretch of coastline. Our very own Moray Firth is actually Scotland’s largest bay!
It’s safe to say we have our fair share of castles in the North East. There’s Craigievar Castle (the pink one) and Drum Castle (listen for Jacobite whispers…); there’s Castle Fraser (the one with Woodland Secrets) and Crathes Castle (with its extensive, glorious grounds); and we can’t forget Fyvie Castle (a magnificent fortress). And we could go on and on! The North East of Scotland is a castle-lover’s dream. Each has its stories to tell with centuries of history to unfold. And even as some attractions have had to temporarily close, the grounds and gardens of these extraordinary estates are a wonder to explore.
The North East of Scotland offers extraordinary scenery to enjoy as you visit our variety of attractions. While we love exploring castles and strolling beautiful beaches, the journey between each point is just as enchanting!

The Northern HighLights Pass includes attractions all around the region, so plan your days in advance to be able to enjoy the drive between destinations. There’s no need to rush around…the journey is just as enjoyable!
Our castles are plentiful and offer a glimpse into life in the North East of Scotland over the centuries. But the museums and cultural centres in this region offer visitors of all ages an opportunity to delve even deeper. Kids love the Grampian Transport Museum and the Fraserburgh Heritage Centre, while adults are particularly keen on the Gordon Highlanders Museum and the Peterhead Prison Museum. Another adult favourite has to be our world-famous distilleries here in the North East. Whisky is very much a part of our culture, and we’re also becoming quite the gin culture, too. Experience some of it firsthand with your Northern HighLights Pass.
From the docile to the downright daredevil, the North East of Scotland has outdoor activities and adventures for all types! Take the kids to meet the horses at Belwade Farm. Enjoy a round of golf, basking in the beauty of Scotland’s greenery with its beloved sport. Or try your hand at clay pigeon shooting — a favourite pastime! Feeling more adventurous? How about mountain biking, off-road Land Rover driving, whitewater rafting, or gorge walking? We mean it…the North East of Scotland has it all! But, don’t worry, in poor weather you can take all your fun indoors with an escape room, an art gallery, or even a show at His Majesty’s Theatre.
