A brilliant base for touring, Royal Deeside begs to be explored with fantastic walks on moor and mountain, river and loch fishing, cycle trails and pony trekking. Strachan is just a 30-minute drive from Aberdeen with its theatres, bars, gardens and shopping centres, and in winter, the ski resorts of Lecht and Cairngorm are easily accessible. Shop, pub and restaurant 5 miles.
