what’s on Royal Deeside and The Mearns

The Mearns is mainly farmland stretching from the coves and cliffs of the Kincardine coast to the hills inland. Yet more typical Scottish countryside abounds here, with mountains, lofty crags, tumbling rivers and desolate moors. Royal Deeside is so named for its connections with Scottish and English royalty, and includes Balmoral Castle among its many famous attractions.
