Aboyne is an ancient village in the heart of Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, 30 miles west of Aberdeen, near to the Cairngorms National Park. The village was formerly known as Bonty and had a castle recorded as being garrisoned by King Edward’s English troops in 1291. Prehistoric remains include a Pictish cross-slab formation stone standing in the grounds of Aboyne Castle, Tomnaverie stone-circle and Balnagowan Necropolis; with its Blue Cairn dating from c.3rd century BC, with boulders measuring 53m long Aboyne is largely a Victorian creation dating from 1676, when it received a burgh charter. The village is officially named Charlestown of Aboyne after Charles Gordon the 1st Earl of Aboyne. In the centre of the village is the green surrounded by grey granite buildings, a range of shops and supermarket, hotels, restaurants and cafes. Aboyne is well equipped as a tourist resort with an 18-hole golf course, a bowling-green, tennis-courts, children’s playground, fishing and shooting. Glen Tanar is ideal for walking, riding and enjoying the picturesque scenery and Aboyne Loch has water skiing facilities. The Deeside Gliding Club and the Muir of Dinnet Nature Reserve are nearby. The Aboyne Highland Games have been held each September on the village green dating back to 1867.
