The village is surrounded by the gorgeous Aberdeenshire countryside and Bucks Burn, a stream which feeds into the River Don, flows through the heart of the village. Additionally, there is a private wood which is open to the public, where you can stroll amongst the trees and enjoy a woodland meander on the outskirts of the village.
