Top Tips when golfing in Aberdeenshire
Aberdeenshire boasts the most castles per acre in the United Kingdom, making it a favourite destination for visitors searching for stunning gardens and castle grounds.
Amongst the list of over 260 castles are Slains Castle, credited with being the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula, and Balmoral Castle, the Scottish home of the Royal Family. There is even a 9 hole golf course on the latter, only open to the public on limited dates in May, June and July.
Like many other areas of Scotland, Aberdeenshire possesses an abundance of world-renowned whisky distilleries. Glen Garioch, Royal Lochnagar and Glenglassaugh all have wonderful tours and are a great way to cap any golf holiday.
Some of the best salmon fishing in the world can be found in the North East of Scotland. The River Dee and River Don have great fishing conditions from February all the way through to October. So if you are struggling to find any birdies and eagles on dry land, you can easily switch your attention to the water.
Widely known as The Granite City, Aberdeen is also sometimes referred to as the “Silver City by the golden sands”. This is due to the silvery glisten that the granite buildings reflect in the sun and the city’s position on a beautiful 20+ mile-long stretch of beach, up the east coast of Scotland.
“Time wasted at the beach is time well spent”.
