East Aquhorthies Stone Circle

Reviewed By heleneshaw - Auchterarder, United Kingdom

Good signage from A96 roundabout near Morrisons store at Inverurie. However the distance from here is around 10 minutes drivecto the car park. The car park could hold around 5 cars but due to poor parking only 3 on this occasion. We needed to park on the roadside, not ideal. From the car park walk up the road saying farm access only. It is a 5 minute gentle walk up a largely tarmac road and a short gravel track to the circle. The stone circlecis fenced off and accessed through a kissing gate. The area is grassed. There is an information board. A good time to visit is ghe evening. Lovely countryside views and walks aign posted in the area although we did not do these.

Maiden Stone

Reviewed By heleneshaw - Auchterarder, United Kingdom

We eventually found the stone. Google maps suggests it's in the grpunds of Pitroddie House. If you follow the signs off the A96 towards Chapel of Gairoch and Pittrodie House hotel you are heading in the right direction. However do not take the road to the hotel and Rowantree woodland walks. Just past this sign is a layby with parking for around 5 cars. You can see the stone from the layby. The walk is short along a narrow path. There is an excellent information board. The stone has very detailed carvings. Well worgh the visit.

Garioch Heritage Centre

Garioch Heritage Centre opened in Inverurie in October 2017 and houses the collections of Garioch Heritage Society. The Society has been researching the area’s history and gathering artefacts which shed light on the working and domestic lives of local people since 1987. The Centre tells the story of life in the Garioch, from the early 20th century to the present day. The Centre sits in the renovated Inverurie Loco Works and keeps the memory of the Loco Works alive, all under the watchful eye of the original 20-ton crane. There is a gift shop, cafe and activities to amuse younger visitors. You can enjoy a guided tour by our experienced volunteers and hear their stories of growing up in the Garioch. Entry is £5 for adults and free for accompanied children.

Magnificent refurbishment of the old Loco Works has resulted in a brilliant new museum staffed by enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers. The displays of Inverurie in the past accompanied by old photographs bring the history of the area to life, and a whole day could be spent just looking through the archives.
Well worth a visit.

Inverurie Whisky Shop

Reviewed By Angela J - Aberdeen, United Kingdom

Just had a wonderful couple of hours trying 5 different types of gin. Very informative re what tonics and fruit/herbs to have with them and where they are made and history of gin.
Time was taken over each gin and explained how to get the best out of it. The difference tastes in gin is really quite amazing.
They have a range of 90 gins in the store so a few more trips to try the remaining 85.
Good value for money and a nice relaxed atmosphere.
Would recommend to eat before hand!
Thanks for a lovely evening and we will be back to sample more.

Please use the centre to help you access Bennachie, a beautiful mountain of 1700ft. Easy/medium walking routes and a little bit of climbing will reward you with fantastic views. Just another great place to go as a family, a couple or on your own in the Scottish summer. Take rain jackets!

We love stone circles so it was a real treat to come across this one. It is well labelled, even if the road was closed the day we were there, but bless her, a local neighbour helped us find it. It is worth taking a short detour to get here.

Virgin Balloon Flights - Castle Fraser

Set from the most elaborate Z-plan castle in Scotland, Castle Fraser was built between 1575 and 1636. The historic walled garden features shrubs, flowers, wall-trained fruit and vegetables. The estate contains a flight pond, mixed woodland and open farmland, with two waymarked walks giving magnificent views of the local hills.

This was an excellent experience my first time in a hot air balloon. The problem in this part of the UK is getting suitable weather conditions. and two of my booking had to be cancelled due to bad weather (high winds) But on 4th June with pilot Kate Holzer and crew the flight took place Clear blue sky, very smooth flight, excellent visibility, didn't even feel the bump on landing with balloon staying upright. Kate and crew were very professional people with an excellent knowledge of balloon flying they were all very friendly and the drinks after the flight went down well.
