Northeast Scotland in detail


Dundee, Aberdeen and Elgin are the main centres for accommodation, but most reasonably sized towns (eg Arbroath, Stonehaven and Huntly) will also have at least a couple of hotels and a dozen or more B&Bs. Some excellent B&Bs – many set in 19th-century country houses, harbourside cottages and manses (former church ministers' houses) – are scattered throughout the region, often in lovely rural settings.
