The Castle Trail and the Whisky Trail are what the North East is best known for, with castles and distilleries to visit in Moray and Aberdeenshire.  Make sure to include Huntly Castle.  And Dallas Dhu Distillery.where you will get a good idea of how whisky is made.  Along the Moray Firth, east of Nairn, there are small fishing villages such as Portsoy, Lossiemouth and Cullen, attractive villages right on the coast.  Ask the staff on your holiday park about dolphin-watching boat trips in the Moray Firth.  Inland you can enjoy the changing seasons on Aberdeenshire's rich farmland - this is the home of Aberdeen Angus cattle and the farms among the best in Scotland..

In Elgin is  the magnificent ruins of Elgin Cathedral and a few miles to the north is Spynie Palace, once the  home of the Bishops of Moray.  

West of Aberdeen is the beautiful glen, Royal Deeside.  Start off at Maryculter on the South Deeside Road and head for Aboyne  then cross on to the North Deeside road for a change of scenery from lowlands
 and the Cairngorms National Park. At Ballater you can visit the Royal Station, where Queen Victoria and her family arrived by train before journeying on to Balmoral Castle.

It's good to get hot tips from the locals on where to go, so ask the staff at the caravan parks where to go and what to see.
