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.

  • Little Blackhall Lodge

    near Banchory

    Ref: UK5134
    A stunning location and wonderful gardens make this a real stand-out property! This lovely fishing lodge, built on the site of the demolished Blackhall Castle, is a real home from home. Its tastefully furnished interior is beautifully complemented by sweeping lawns and mature trees which were once part of the old castle gardens, and being in a superb position just a couple of hundred yards from the River Dee, there are lovely walks along this delightful river. With plentiful wildlife, you may encounter ospreys, otters, red squirrels and pine martens during a relaxing stroll. The seldom used owner accommodation is attached to the house but the gardens and grounds are all available to be enjoyed by guests at any time. A well stocked trout pond nearby is available for fishing by arrangement with the estate overseer.
    Banchory, a bustling market town, is just a couple of miles away and has plenty of interesting shops and eateries as well as being the gateway to Royal Deeside. The area, a favourite haunt, first of royalty and ever since of tourists, has many delights to offer and makes an ideal base from which to explore castles, mountains and coastlines, all within an hour’s drive. Watch the salmon leap at the nearby Falls of Feugh, or visit Crathes and Drum Castle, just two of the many on the Castle Trail which winds its way through the area. A spectacular drive over the high pass of Cairn o’Mount will take you to the village of Fettercairn where there is one of the oldest whisky distilleries in Scotland. Slightly further afield is the delightful village of Ballater, Balmoral Castle (open most of the year to visitors) and skiing at the Lecht, only an hour’s drive. Quad biking, cycling, archery, horse riding and golf (two courses in Banchory itself) are all easily available and walking in the beautiful scenery (try Lochnagar and the Lairig Ghru) adds to the many outdoor activities available in abundance in this magical area.
