Peterhead

The port of Peterhead lies north of Aberdeen on the North East coast of Scotland and, as with Aberdeen, gives access to the beautiful countryside for which the region is famed. Favoured by the Queen for her grand hunting estate at Balmoral, the area is rich in historic buildings. Head out to Pitmedden Gardens for a sample of the glorious formal parterre gardens that were so popular on the largest estates in the 17th Century. Alternatively, drive South to Aberdeen port for a chance to see the highlights of this city.

Some other tour options include:

Fyvie Gardens
 

A half or full day trip to this magnificent stronghold that can date its origins as far back as 1211 and William the Lion. It remains today, a testiment to the creative and restorative generations of 5 families that have made Fyvie one of the most unique examples of Scottish Baronial architecture and contents.
