The River Dee is a beautiful waterway which passes through Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Starting out in the dramatic Cairngorm Mountains, the river flows through the magnificent Dee Valley, past Ballater, Royal Deeside and Balmoral Castle, before eventually reaching its North Sea estuary at Aberdeen. Encompassing such a fine range of attractions, both natural and cultural, a trip to the River Dee could be the best Ballater hotels for example, and you’ll be able to enjoy a number of exciting annual events, such as Victoria Day, and the Ballater Walking Festival. The town is also within close reach of Balmoral Castle – the official Scottish residence of The British Royal Family. The Castle itself is open to visits from the public between the months of April and July, and features a beautiful 49,000-acre estate, including lochs, forests and a well-tended, landscaped garden.
So, for some truly beautiful weekend breaks in the Scottish countryside, take a trip to the River Dee; from the Cairngorms as far as the city of Aberdeen, this beautiful waterway flows through some of the country’s leading tourist attractions.
