Spirit of Scotland

8 days Half Board by Coach

Between the imposing Cairngorm Mountains and the swirling waters of the North Sea, the granite city of Aberdeen is a revealing contrast of hardened Scotland and modern day oil riches. Known as the ‘Granite City’ after its many grey-stone buildings and facades, it provides a perfect base for discovering the rolling hills of Royal Deeside and the gentle valleys of Speyside with its world famous whisky distilleries.
