Living in Aboyne: The local area guide

Aboyne is a famously beautiful village in the Scottish Highlands. It lies in Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire, and attracts huge numbers of tourists every year thanks to its incredibly picturesque setting and range of attractions. Balmoral Castle is very close by, and the Cairngorms National Park only a few miles away. Aboyne hosts its own Highland Games on the village green every year, on the first Saturday of August.

The village was known as Bunty throughout the middle ages, though became known as Charleston of Aboyne during the 1670s. It was the site of an English occupation by King Edward Longshanks in 1291, and a castle has been present in the area since at least that time.

Today, the locals welcome large numbers of tourists throughout the year, though typically during the summer, who flock to see one of the most beautiful spots in Scotland. The population of Aboyne has been known to double during peak tourist months.


Aboyne is fairly sizable, with around 2,600 permanent residents - increasing to around 5,000 during the peak summer and autumn months. It has an older than average population, with more residents over the age of 45 than the national norm, and a sizeable community of retirees. Education levels are higher than the average for Scotland, and most residents of Aboyne own their own home rather than rent.

At the heart of the community, literally and figuratively, is the village green. It was put in place by the Marquesses of Huntly (the owners and inhabitants of Aboyne Castle) who wanted to model it on the English village greens they had seen down south. The green is the center of a lot of activity - the annual Highland Games are held there, which thousands of people come to see, and local rugby and football teams train and play on the green.

Within the bounds of the village is a swimming pool, golf course, some tennis courts and a bowling green, for the use of the locals. And within easy reach are all manner of outdoor pursuits - fishing, cycling, walking and gliding are just some examples. Rock-climbing is also a common pursuit, with the pass of Ballater nearby. Just down the road, is the boundary of Cairngorms National Park which offers even more to do and see.

Events are put on by residents throughout the year such as the aforementioned Highland Games, and during July there is an arts festival run by the local theatre and Community Centre.


Within the village are two schools - the Aboyne Primary School, a well-thought-of and high performing institution, and the Academy. The Academy has 650 pupils and offers fantastic facilities including a full size swimming pool and gym.

Further afield in Banchory there are more schools, often looked at by parents searching for more choice in their children’s schooling, and just within reach is Aberdeen - the site of fantastic schools with all kinds of different approaches and philosophies.


Until the 1960s and the famous Beeching Cuts, Aboyne was served by its own railway station on the Aberdeen to Ballater line. Since it closed, regular busses have served the village well. However, due to the remoteness of Aboyne the best way to get around is by car.

Aberdeen is a 45-minute drive away and links to the rest of the country by train, and Banchory is half that distance away in the same direction. Plus, Cairngorms National Park is merely minutes away by car, and offers fantastic sightseeing opportunities.

Amenities and shopping

Aboyne has all of the essentials and some convenience shops, as well as some craft stores. It has a supermarket, butcher, Indian takeaway, banks, hairdressers and newsagent. It also has fantastic places to eat, drink and enjoy the views.

For a larger retail experience, Banchory has a good selection of shops on its high street. A bit further on in Aberdeen, all kinds of big brands and boutique shops can be found in the center of the town.
