What's On Aberdeen & Aberdeenshire

Deeside Holiday Park is a tranquil retreat set in the southern valley of the River Dee ideal for getting away from it all. And yet, the park is only a few miles from the lively city of Aberdeen – “the granite city" with its sparkling stone architecture and its international culture as the Energy capital of Europe.

Deeside has long been a favourite destination for the Royal family and for many other visitors to the north-east of Scotland. Steeped in history and tradition, the area is a must for heritage lovers with its castles and folklore, whisky distilleries and museums and of course its atmospheric stone circles – history comes to life at every turn.

Whether you choose to visit Deeside Holiday Park to relax and explore the great outdoors or to have some fun on a lively activity break, there are a host of opportunities on your doorstep.

Please check the websites listed before travelling to or booking tickets for any events as dates/times may be subject to change and we're not liable for any changes to events.
