Are you ready to make a day of it in Aberdeenshire?

Aberdeenshire has so much going for it – isn’t it time you rediscovered this north eastern gem?

The Press & Journal has teamed up with VisitAberdeenshire – the lead tourism agency that promotes visitor experiences in north-east Scotland – for its Make a Day of It campaign.

Launched on Monday February 21, Make a Day of It encourages locals to explore their surrounding areas – and venture a little further afield – as they rediscover things to do in Aberdeenshire and all that is wonderful about this thriving area.

Perhaps it has been a few years since you toured around Royal Deeside, Banff and Buchan coast, or Peterhead and surrounding area? Or maybe you had fond memories of visiting Turriff, Ellon and surrounding area as a child? Or you might think you know all the hotspots in Inverurie, Garioch area and Kincardine and Mearns but, as the Make a Day of It campaign celebrates, there are so many undiscovered places.

As well as visiting the popular tourist spots with your family, why not make it your mission to explore some of the hidden places in Aberdeenshire too as you wile away the day in this amazing region of Scotland.
