The region’s wide diversity of very Scottish countryside, rugged mountains, clear tumbling streams and top class fishing rivers are shown alongside the flat fertile farmlands of The Howe of the Mearns, the hill farms of Upper Deeside or Donside or the gently rolling lands of Buchan. The Aberdeenshire coast with its traditional fishing harbours, long stretches of golden sand or its spectacular ruined castles are all recorded, as are the myriad symbols of its ancient past from Bronze Age Stone Circles, Pictish Carvings to more recent times with its wealth of National Trust for Scotland and Historic Scotland properties from castles to stately homes.

The area covered starts at St Cyrus, just north of Montrose and sweeps northwards and westwards, beginning in The Mearns and its coastline, before travelling along the River Dee and its hinterland with Kincardine and Marr into the Cairngorms.

From there, the book moves eastwards from Strathdon and Strathbogie along the River Don into Formartine, before journeying northwards throughout Buchan and it’s coast from Newburgh, Cruden Bay, Peterhead to Fraserburgh.

 The book finishes with the Moray coastline and inland areas of Banff and Buchan covering as well the Aberdeenshire parts of the River Deveron from Banff to Huntly. A map and index are included but this as this is a book of photographs, so the text is limited to captions.

The book is of the same dimensions as its companion book of the city – "Aberdeen-A Celebration in Pictures"  but has 75 pages more and retailed at £14.99. As a pair they will represent a unique and probably the most comprehensive photographic collection of any area in Scotland. The book is now Out of Print. Best bet to get copies is from used books sites like Amazon and Alibris.
