Owned by the same family for 800 years, this beautiful 12th-century castle enjoys a peaceful location on the outskirts of Inverurie, surrounded by private estate lands. Eight bedrooms sleep 16 guests, making this rural retreat ideal for larger families or groups of friends seeking somewhere special to gather together for celebrations and reunions. Enjoy candlelit cocktails in the library before assembling in the formal dining room to linger over gourmet meals at the gleaming antique table. Play garden games on the extensive lawns and spend your days exploring the estate grounds, spotting wildlife in the woodlands and seeking out the perfect picnic spot. The Bennachie Hills are less than 9 miles away for days hiking the rugged landscape and golfers will be spoilt for choice with numerous courses within the vicinity.

Your imposing stone castle, complete with turrets, boasts spacious accommodation bursting with original features, antique furniture and luxurious soft furnishings. Filled with natural light from the large windows, your sitting room is an inviting space with comfortable seating grouped for relaxation and conversation. Curl up with a good book in the library or in the evening congregate in this charming room for pre-dinner drinks and canapes as the fire crackles in the hearth. Cook up a storm in the bright and airy kitchen and dine in style in the formal dining room, a lovely room for celebrating together. After supper, head to the games room for a game of round-robin at the table tennis table. When it’s time to retire, ascend the curving staircase to the first floor where you will find eight well-appointed bedrooms dressed in crisp linens and luxurious soft furnishings. Each room is individually styled to reflect the history of the castle with antique furniture and decorated in restful tones. Two king-size bedrooms enjoy en-suite bathrooms while a further two king-size bedrooms benefit from en-suite shower rooms. A charming twin bedroom, family room with three single beds and another two king-size bedrooms have the use of two generous bathrooms. Outside, enjoy leisurely strolls through the estate grounds, picnic on the lawns and light the BBQ for a relaxed evening meal. There is ample parking.

The Scottish Highlands are a popular destination for keen golf fans, and luckily five golf courses can be accessed within 10 miles of your doorstep. Spend a relaxing afternoon on an 18-hole course, then enjoy a drink or two at the local clubhouse.

A popular visit for all the family is Fyvie Castle, just 8 miles away. This National Trust property is an 800-year-old fortress with historical artefacts and stunning portraits. Wander around the Loch of Fyvie and keep your eyes out for ospreys, otters, herons and even bats – an excellent hotspot for nature photographers.

Those looking to spend some time in a city can head to local Aberdeen (25 miles). Spend an afternoon mooching around the Maritime Museum or the exciting Tolbooth Museum, a former 17th-century jail. The city naturally offers a host of options for drinking and dining, as well as a long, sandy beach with a leisure centre and family funfair.

The area is, of course, made famous by its iconic Scottish whisky, and you'll find yourself staying in the heart of the Malt Whisky District. This area boasts the world's largest concentration of whisky distilleries and is a must-visit area for fans of the liquor. Various distilleries offer both tastings and tours and you can rest assured that you'll find plenty of quality whisky bars in the area. The majority of the Malt Whisky Trail can be found 30 miles away, but your closest whisky distillery is just 6 miles from home.
