Aboyne beside the beautiful River Dee, Royal Deeside
Aboyne is situated right in the heart of Royal Deeside.
Aboyne frequently sets records temperatures for the UK , and it is a popular holiday destination. Being right next to The Cairngorm National Park means the village is an excellent base.
Fishermen come from all over the world; including Scandinavia; to enjoy salmon fishing on the River Dee.
Aboyne’s world famous Highland Games take place every August on the village green.
The games patron The Marquis of Huntly lives at Aboyne Castle. The Gordon clan crest motto “Bydand” is featured on the gates to the village green and on on the uniforms of pipe band members.
Bydand literally means “steadfast;” or “staying here;” as in the Scottish word “bide”. Another meaning is to “stand and fight”. See Gordon Highlander photos lower down this page.
The Green is the epicentre of the village and is the site of the world famous Aboyne Highland Games

This page is not a Mountain Weather Forecast
Mountain weather can be very different to the glens. This forecast does not apply to mountain areas. Always check an appropriate mountain weather forecast before venturing out into our hills and mountains. Weather conditions can change rapidly. Take professional advice about clothing, footwear, waterproofs, equipment, layers, food, drink, emergency procedures and navigation. Don’t go out on the hills if bad weather is forecast. Don’t take risks. Remember mountain rescue services have a long response time, and helicopters can’t fly in adverse conditions. Don’t rely on mobile phones. Give your itinerary to an appropriate responsible person. Don’t go alone. Make sure you have large supplies of water on hot days – heat exhaustion is a serious risk. Make sure you return before it goes dark.
