The local area boasts a wealth of activities, from stunning coastal and country walks, to horse riding, fishing and shooting. Minutes away lies the beautiful and unforgettable town of Stonehaven. An ideal spot for families, couples or friends, Stonehaven has one of the region’s most notable visitor attractions, Dunnottar Castle. Perched on the top of a craggy cliff-edge, the romantic and haunting ruin is an iconic Scottish landmark thanks to its dramatic setting.

With its own sandy seafront and picture-perfect harbour, Stonehaven is home to some of the region’s top eateries and also boasts a heated open-air swimming pool.

Ury Estate acts as a gateway to Royal Deeside, which includes Balmoral Castle, reputedly the late Queen Elizabeth’s favourite residence. With its characteristic Scottish blend of moody mountains, lofty crags, tumbling rivers, moors and forests, Deeside offers excellent opportunities for outdoor activities such as walking, biking and wildlife watching.
