Aboyne Town Information




Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Aberdeenshire...








Based around a large green where a Highland Gathering takes place each year, Aboyne stands on the south side of the River Dee and is the ideal location from which to explore its picturesque surroundings. Its 13th century castle acted as a Gordon stronghold.

The valley of Glen Tanar eventually leads to Glen Mark and the eastern Cairngorms, and at nearby Lumphanan lies Macbeth’s Cairn, reputed to be where Macbeth made his stand before being killed by Malcolm in the 11th century.
