The north-east corner of the country was particularly badly hit and now communities in Aberdeenshire are facing lengthy recovery operations. Bbc Scotland has been to meet some of them.
" The Roof was flapping up and down".
He Said the closure was " a big loss to the town" due to " hundreds of years of history" but that most was salvageable.
Mr Scott said The Feeling was " disappointment and devastation" at the amount of damage that had been caused.
" It's heart-breaking really" He Said . " We need to get artefacts out and dried out and start renovating. "
Some areas that were fully enclosed escaped the damage.
He estimates it could be 2024 before a new roof is fitted and the centre is ready to reopen.'It will take weeks and weeks to clear up'
Meg Morrison is a tenant farmer near Newmachar.
She and her partner had been farming this land for less than a year when Storm Arwen struck.
She was only able to look at the damage The Next morning, with trees blocking entrances to fields.
" It (woodland) was all just down" She Said ,
" As new entrant farmers we have been really lucky to get our first tenancy, and with that comes a responsibility of looking after The Land that we have and trying to improve it where we can.
" We haven't really planned for this to happen and we don't really know where to start to be honest.
" This is going to take weeks and weeks to clear up and it's just us. "
She Said it was lucky no harm was caused to any of their animals.
" It was one of my favourite parts of The Farm . It's also sad as there a lot of wildlife such as owls, it's such as shame as it's all flattened. "'We had to close The Park - it's dangerous'
At Aden Country Park in Mintlaw, heavy forestry equipment has been brought in to clear the area.
" There are trees hung up in forest areas. People have been walking underneath it so we had to make a big decision to close The Park to keep The Public out so we can get our work done and get The Park back open.
" It was a very hard decision to make but it had to be done, it was very dangerous. "
" We will recover. "
