About the neighbourhood
The area is well known for it's beauty and friendly locals. The coast and beaches in particular are not spoilt by tourism. You will often find you have the beach to yourselves even through peak season. Everywhere you drive are plenty of option for walking through forests and along coastal paths. If you're interested in history you will enjoy the vast quantity of castles to visit. The area is also very well known for it's whisky distilleries, most of which offer a guided tour and tasting. If sport is more your thing, there are many golf courses to choose from, plenty of river fishing and surfing at Banff and Sandend. If you love fish, you'll be in the right place. Fresh fish and local fish suppers!
Getting around
As I said previously, a car and a sat nav are your best bet to get around. The roads are excellent and everywhere you drive is beautiful.
