Loch Kinord Hotel
4.2/5 (19 reviews)

Overall OK but could have been better. The room was cold the first night we got there and the duvet was very thin. Also, the second night we decided to have dinner at the hotel, which ended up being rather pricy, as the only option was to have a 2 or 3 course set meal (2 course for £25.99). The food ...

Activities in Aberdeenshire

In the south west region of Aberdeenshire, guests will find Ballater, Banchory and Braemar. This area is called Marr, the River Dee rushes through the towns and is famous for its fishy offerings of top quality salmon.

Along the river, visitors will also find Braemar Castle, the ruins of a 17th century castle built by the Earl of Mar. Inside there is 200 years worth of luxurious furniture, family portraits and impressive decor.

Another place of interest is Crathes Castle, a 16th century tower house that looks as if it were plucked out of a fairytale. It also boasts beautiful gardens full of colourful blooms and a courtyard cafe.

Balmoral Castle rests in the Cairngorms National Park and is home to the British Royal Family. It was built for and presented to Queen Victoria by her husband, Albert, in 1852. Today, guests can tour some of the house, but not all, as the current Queen still stays in the Royal Rooms. The gardens are also worth a walk around, with fantastic views of the surrounding area.
