Tarland by Deeside has been favoured by royalty for many years. Queen Victoria chose the area for her home at Balmoral in the 1850s and it is still a favourite with the Royal family today. Our Club Site shares the same spectacular scenery.
Tarland village is a five-minute walk away. It has shops, a bowling green and a golf course.
It is a good starting point for walks, with open views towards Mount Keen, Lochnagar and Morven.
Aberdeen - the Granite City - is to the east, with fine buildings, good shops, theatres, galleries and museums. A bus from the village goes to the city centre.
Aboyne, six miles from the site, has shops and a swimming pool. The theatre is central to the Aboyne and Deeside Festival in July.
The local Highland Games are held here in August. Glen Tanar and Muir of Dinnet are two superb local nature reserves.
The fairytale Craigievar Castle is pinkish in colour and on Scotland's Castle Trail.
The Grampian Transport Museum at Alford traces the history of travel in the Grampian District, and includes a 1914 steam wagon.
There are many routes for walkers and cyclists. TrailQuest at Kirkhill Forest is a good family bike trail.
The Royal Deeside Lines railway station is now a Visitor Centre, situated next to Crathes Castle.
Train trips now take place on the newly-restored line.
The Queen's summer residence is at Balmoral. The estate grounds, gardens and the Castle Ballroom are open to visitors during the summer.
The River Dee is one of the great Scottish salmon rivers.
