Things to do Beyond the estate

Bennachie

Hikers welcome! The castle grounds lead directly onto the mountain trails. No roads to be crossed. Bring your boots.

Whisky

This is whisky country. Several local distilleries have tours of their facilities including world famous Glenfiddich and Chivas.

Cairngorms

If the closer options are too tame, this mountain range is just on the doorstep. Skiing and climbing  are within range.

Golf

We can now offer complimentary golf for up to six players at a time at Insch Golf Club! Find out more on our 'Extras' page.

Balmoral

The King's Scottish home can be viewed by appointment at certain times of the year. Please check before visiting.

History

The spectacular ruins of this country's frequently confrontational past are scattered across the landscape.

Highland Games

Staying with us in August? Make time for the Lonach Games.  Marvel at the caber toss. Discover your family roots.

Local Flavour

The home of Aberdeen Angus has a fine selection of restaurants as well as stately homes offering afternoon tea.
