Aboyne Things to Do

  • The official Send-Off

  • Helping Santa Claus

    Of course one can't let Santa do all the work himself, so the mayor and the local royalty have joined Santa in his "Beautify the Highlands" campaign.

  • Summer job

    Have you ever wondered what Santa Claus does for the other 364 days of the year? It would appear that he spends it travelling from place to place picking up rubbish with his pointed walking stick.
