Why Move to Aberdeenshire?
Located in the north east of Scotland, Aberdeenshire is fondly referred to as ‘the oil capital of Europe’. Its largest city Aberdeen has been the hub of the UK’s energy industry for the last few decades. This has led to an increase in jobs, attracting new workers and creating a population boom.
A significant proportion of Aberdeenshire’s working residents commute to Aberdeen City for work. The number of jobs created by the energy industry in and around Aberdeen has been estimated at half a million – this includes jobs in Scotland’s world-leading renewable energy sector.
Aberdeenshire has a rich prehistoric and historic heritage. It is the locus of a large number of Neolithic and Bronze Age archaeological sites, including Longman Hill, Kempstone Hill, Catto Long Barrow and Cairn Lee.
Surprisingly for Scotland, the regions summers are mild, coastal temperatures are moderated by the North Sea making it typically cooler in the summer and warmer in winter than inland locations.
Aberdeenshire is well connected by road, rail, air, and sea. And complementary to this, Aberdeen International Airport offers flights and connections UK wide and to Europe including London a journey of one hour and France and Amsterdam two hours.
A predominantly rural area means when you live in this region, you can enjoy the best of all worlds, many places are surrounded by spectacular coastal views and beautiful countryside yet close to local amenities and handy transport connections.
As well as some wonderful places to live, you will find a host of exciting leisure opportunities are also available. Picturesque harbours, pristine beaches, and countless sites of historical interest as well as great fishing, skiing, horse riding and hiking.
Aberdeenshire, along with other areas of Scotland, does very well for state schools plus, there are two well regarded universities to choose from.
Aberdeenshire Schools & Education
One thing you do not have to worry about when moving to Scotland is the quality of its state education.
The Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) is the national curriculum used from nursery school all the way through to secondary school. CfE comprises a broad general education up to the end of S3 (third year in secondary school) followed by a senior phase of learning in the final three years of secondary school.
Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Education (HMIE) is responsible for overseeing the quality of education provision in Scotland. They monitor the 151 primary schools and 17 secondary schools in Aberdeenshire.
As well as state schools, there is a wide range of private/independent or boarding schools in the county. These schools cover all stages of education, from nursery through to secondary school.

People consider all manner of different factors when it comes to quality of life, but among one of the most consistently important aspects is location. Where you live matters hugely. So, it pays to do your research carefully before you decide where to relocate to.
The county is packed with characterful villages and towns such as Inverurie, Stonehaven and Aboyne and its only city Aberdeen, but everyone has a different idea when it comes to location and there is no lack of choice.
There is a good stock of affordable homes throughout Aberdeenshire. Terraced, semi-detached, and detached housing, including traditional granite period stock as well as more modern properties are all available.
Living in a city is always going to be comparatively more expensive that a more rural area. The cost of a home in Aberdeen averages out at £209,000. But you have the advantage of living in a high employment area and plenty of action with regard to entertainment.
If you are looking for a quieter lifestyle, you may want to consider Milltimber. Situated around 10 miles inland from the coast and 6 miles from Aberdeen, it is among one of the most expensive places in the county and it is home to a highly rated primary school. The average cost of a home here is £451,000.
One of the cheapest towns to purchase a home is in Fraserburgh. The average price for property in Fraserburgh stood at £137,479.
