Book hotels in Aberdeenshire

Book a hotel in Aberdeenshire and start exploring the rugged and resilient coast. 17.2 miles down the shores from our Aberdeen Central Justice Mill Hotel is Dunnotar Castle. Sitting on a cliff top, the castle ruins are only slightly more impressive than its spectacular setting. When you’ve had enough history, spend some time dolphin and whale watching. Calling all bucket-and-spade types, there’s a sandy beach in sight. Head straight to Balmedie Beach. Located in a country park, it’s remote, secluded and lovely and our Aberdeen Airport Hotel is 9.2 miles away. If you’re more a city dweller, Aberdeen is the place for you. When you’ve seen the cathedral, museums and wandered the streets, our Aberdeen Central Hotel is within walking distance.

Things to do in Aberdeenshire

Scotland’s famous for its beautiful scenery, and Aberdeenshire’s no different. Head to Balmoral Castle in Caringorms National Park for a wander around the fairytale-esque castle, before heading deeper into the Scottish wilderness.

Adventurous types, try your hand at various water sports like sea kayaking or windsurfing. Head to the coastal village of Newburgh to have a go. Our Aberdeen Airport Hotel is 13.1 miles away.
