Aberdeenshire and Moray with it’s natural beauty of rolling hills, towering mountains and stunning coastlines offers an incredible backdrop for a host of adventure activities and wildlife watching experiences whether that be watching bottlenose dolphins off the Moray Coast - by boat or from the shore, enjoying a mountain biking experience in the forest or hiking up a munro.

The vast heather moors of Aberdeenshire provide excellent opportunities to see red grouse and red deer. Such is the wealth of wildlife watching opportunities that you can watch black grouse at dawn, osprey and crested tits during the day and more reclusive mammals such as pine martens and badgers at dusk.

To the north and east is fertile North Sea coastland, which is host to winter seaducks, summer ospreys and terns and Scotland’s only mainland gannet colony at Troup Head. Loch of Strathbeg, north of Aberdeen is the winter home to 20% of the world’s population of pink-footed geese.
