Local information

Aboyne is a charming village in the heart of the rolling Dee Valley. Unusually for a Scottish village, it is built around a wide village green, where the cherry trees blossom in the spring under the benign gaze of the blue hills beyond. Each August, the green is host to the great spectacle of its own highland games, established in 1867. The village is small enough to foster a great community spirit, but big enough to boast a wonderful array of shops, and all manner of amenities. It has one of the finest butchers in the area, whose Aberdeen Angus beef is second to none, and everything from a florist to a vet. There is a bowling green, a water-skiing club at the Aboyne loch, two golf courses, and a community centre with a library, theatre and swimming pool. There is a primary and secondary school, both of which have received glowing reports from the Scottish Inspector of Education. The mighty River Dee, which runs just south of the village, is renowned for its salmon fishing, and two miles away is the Deeside gliding club.
