Discover the beautiful and tranquil side of Scotland with a stay in the romantic, windswept Scottish countryside. Macdonald Norwood Hall Hotel was built on the site of a 15th-century castle and sits within a 19-acre estate of thick woodland and pretty, landscaped gardens. Just outside Aberdeen, right on the edge of the River Dee and close to the rugged coast, this hotel puts you in the middle of some of Scotland’s most impressive landscapes.

Between lounging in your luxe guest room and exploring the surrounding area, you’ll have plenty to do during your Scottish stay. Spend your days strolling the grounds, golfing in one of the five nearby courses (you'll discover some seriously impressive settings) or head into Aberdeen for a day’s shopping. The hotel’s restaurant has scooped two AA Rosettes for its fine fare, plus there's a refined Georgian-style lounge with an exclusive malt-whisky menu.
