  • visit the area known as Lower...

    by nickisim Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: visit the area known as Lower Deeside. This is where the Queen has her Highland country retreat of Balmoral Castle situated between the quaint villages of Ballater and Braemar.
    The countryside here is amazing with spectacular views of lochs at Glen Muich, Lochnagar and Lynn O' Dee where wild deer roam free throughout the year.
    A trip to the local fish market was also extremely interesting but remember to get up early!!

    Fondest memory: Walking round the historic 'Old Aberdeen'. There were beautifully designed buildings such as the Kings College, St Machar's Cathedral, Marischal College and it soon became apparent just why this town is known as the Granite City.
    On the fun side, it would have to be jumping down the dunes of Balmedie beach. Aberdeen may well be cold at times but it has some of the prettiest beaches that I have ever seen and the people are very warm hearted.
