Welcome to the Aberdeenshire Council Ranger Service webpages.
We have a team of six rangers based throughout Aberdeenshire, and a Warden plus seasonal staff at the Bennachie Visitor Centre, to help visitors and residents explore and enjoy our rich natural and cultural heritage.
In common with other Ranger Services in Scotland, we have three main aims:
- To provide a warm welcome and provide support to help people enjoy the outdoors.
- To increase awareness, understanding, care and responsible use of the natural and cultural heritage.
- To support the sustainable management and use of the outdoors to meet a range of social, economic and environmental objectives.
You can find out more about your Area Ranger and their area on the Contacts page.
