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.

Aberdeen Christmas Village
Broad Street, Aberdeen
Including an open-air ice rink with the beautiful backdrop of Marischal College, a selection of fairground rides and attractions, festival food and drink, Santa’s Grotto and our popular Christmas in the Quad market within Marischal College Quadrangle, there is something for everyone to enjoy this Christmas in Aberdeen City Centre.
Stonehaven Pier, Aberdeenshire
Stonehaven’s Hogmanay Fireballs Ceremony is one of Scotland’s most memorable fire festivals. As the midnight bells ring out on Hogmanay, 45 locals parade up and down the High Street will swing fiercely flaming balls to burn off the bad spirits from the old year so that the spirits of the New Year can come in clean and fresh.
Bring in the bells at our open-air stage on Schoolhill with live music and a spectacular firework display from the roof of His Majesty's Theatre. So come and enjoy two top-class bands followed by the countdown everyone is waiting for!
