Regions

The regions for Explore Aberdeen and Explore  have been divided up so as to try and bring about some logic to how the information is organised on the Explore Aberdeen website. Whilst the website is very much centred around Aberdeen city centre and Inverurie, over the next few months, you will see more  content added to include much  of the Aberdeenshire aera too and all that is has to offer.
