How to get there

Situated 10 miles or so out of central Aberdeen in a rural area near Balmedie Country Park, you’re best driving here with your own set of wheels; on-site parking is available at no extra cost.

If you’d rather come via public transport, you’re best getting any number of buses (54, 54A, 60, 61 or 63) from Union Square Bus Station to Balmedie and walking from there.

Good to know

There are facilities available for guests with disabilities; pets are not allowed.


Situated on the wild north-east coast of Aberdeenshire, this luxurious Scottish abode is just a 10-minute walk from the beach, but also only a 15-minute drive from the centre of Aberdeen. Besides practicing your swing on the championship golf course, there’s plenty to do within the lodge’s grounds. Opt to go clay pigeon shooting or go for a lovely amble on the wind-swept beach, keeping your eyes open for deer, badgers and owls along the way.

There is plenty to see and do in Aberdeen itself, from exploring the region’s maritime history at the Maritime Museum, gazing in awe at the St. Machar’s Cathedral or taking a walk to the towering Girdle Ness Lighthouse. Further afield, the royal residence of Balmoral Castle is well worth a visit.
