Temporary Holiday Sites 2016
We have some superb sites chosen for this year in the heart of one of the most beautiful areas of our country. Castles galore to visit and don’t forget the Whisky Trail, many distilleries are in easy reach of Milton of Crathes.
30 June to 14th July we will be at Brechin Equestrian Centre, near Brechin Castle, now who wouldn’t like to stay in a beautiful country park attached to a castle dating back to the 1600s? Lovely garden centre close by, spoil yourself with breakfast at the coffee shop – served from 9 till 11.30 am. Lovely walks round the country park, take a guided tour of the Castle, good children’s play area nearby.
In the town is a small museum in the former town house, and an Award Winning Tourist attraction: the Caledonian Railway (Brechin). Along with the cathedral and round tower, part of the chapel of Brechin’s Maison Dieu or hospital survives from the Middle Ages.
14th July to 6th August we will be at Milton of Crathes, near Banchory on the A93,between Royal Deeside and the Granite City of Aberdeen. Grampian’s jewel in the crown with something for everyone – walking, cycling and public transport near. Visit Balmoral Castle or various highland games, whisky trails abound, and it is an easy drive to the Granite City (Aberdeen) for museums, art gallery and the characterful Old Town. Then you can finish off your holiday at the Aboyne Games on Saturday 5th.
