Banchory

The historic town of Banchory lies 20 miles to the west of Aberdeen. Located on the banks of the River Dee, the town is surrounded by beautiful rural countryside and is ideally situated to explore Royal Deeside, the Cairngorms National Park and the north east coast of Scotland.

Banchory features many attractions, including the 16th century Crathes Castle with its famous walled garden, and Drum Castle, located close by. There is a small museum with displays relating to local history, including the town''s famous resident, fiddler James Scott Skinner, who composed The Bonnie Lass o’ Bon Accord.

A short walk from the town centre, The Falls of Feugh tumble from the River Dee and at certain times of the year, salmon can be spotted leaping out of the water. Just across the stone bridge is a tea room, where an assortment of mouthwatering home-made cakes and scones await. Another notable landmark close to the town is Scoulty Tower, which is reached via a pleasant woodland walk. Those who climb to the top are rewarded with superb views of the Dee Valley and surrounding countryside.

Throughout the area there are numerous activities, including mountain biking, horse riding, canoeing, trout fishing, quad biking and archery. The Deeside Activity Park is the place to find an array of outdoor and indoor pursuits and there is plenty to keep the kids entertained, including a play area and an outdoor adventure zone.

For golfers, there are several superb courses, including the Banchory Golf Club, where Open Winner Paul Lawrie began his career. The surrounding area features some of Scotland''s finest countryside and has connections with Royalty. Queen Victoria was seduced by the area over a century ago and discovered Balmoral when searching for a second home.
