WIN a luxury outdoor break to Aberdeen City and Shire plus a free pair of Merrell boots
VisitScotland has teamed up with Merrell to offer you and a companion the chance to capture your memorable Autumn Moments in Scotland, with an outdoor break to the enchanting region of Aberdeen City and Shire.
Revel in the rich autumnal elegance of the 4-star Norwood Hotel in Aberdeen for 2 nights on a sumptuous dinner, bed and breakfast basis. Nestled within 7-acres of secluded gardens and woodland, you and your companion will delight in the abundance of scenic beauty on your doorstep.
Explore Muir of Dinnet National Nature Reserve with a 3-hour guided walk of this area of outstanding natural beauty, and with a pair of Merrell waking boots included within the prize, you will do so in style! Wetlands, woods and moors combine in a beautiful mosaic here, which is also home to much evidence of a rich human history including a Pictish cross, hut circles and the site of an old crannog. Discover this National Nature Reserve’s two impressive lochs, marvelling as glorious autumn reflections shine from their smooth surface and journey through the Vat, a cauldron shaped pothole which is the finest meltwater-carved feature of its kind in Britain.
To round off your getaway, discover the magic of autumn in Scotland with a helicopter tour across Aberdeen, Bennachie and Inverurie. PDG Helicopters will guide you over this spectacular area, allowing you to absorb the stunning, golden landscape as its autumnal hues burst to life in a kaleidoscope of colour.
What’s more, with £400 towards travel and spending money, you are free to discover many more Autumn Moments in Aberdeenshire. Why not take in the crisp autumnal air of the city and visit some of its finest restaurants, luxury shopping and picturesque gardens that this wonderful city has to offer?
