village of Tarland lies within the Howe O’ Cromar, bound
on its northern side by a curve of heather clad hills and high
pasture, and with open countryside, woods and cultivated land
elsewhere. The village provides an excellent starting point for
many fine walks in the surrounding countryside, with spectacular
open views of Deeside towards Mount Keen, Lochnagar and Morven.
The area is also home to many historic monuments including the
recently restored 4000-year-old recumbent stone circle at Tomnaverie
and Iron age Culsh Earth Houses often known as Souterrains. An
excellent network of paths and tracks lead out from the village
centre, providing a variety of routes to cater for all tastes
