September in the North East
2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of ASPC. Over five decades, we have been at the forefront of property marketing in the North East of Scotland. To commemorate this important milestone, our 2019 calendar takes us on a journey around the area to showcase the beautiful location in which we work and live.
The calendar features a selection of specially commissioned photographs by the acclaimed Aberdeen-born photographer Ray Smith, who captures the location in a unique and engaging way.
Our calendar images for September showcase the stunning shoreline of the North East where you can discover spectacular coves, enchanting harbours and beautiful clifftop walks.
In this blog, we take a look at some of the events being held in and around the North East in the upcoming month.
