Cluny Castle – Sauchen, Aberdeenshire
Cluny Castle is every inch the enchanting, Cinderella-esque venue you would expect to find hidden deep in the rolling hills of Aberdeenshire. Set in over 200 acres of painstakingly landscaped parkland, the castle itself dates back to the 15th century and remains a private home. However, when you choose to celebrate a special occasion – or just spend quality time with family and friends – its magnificent granite walls and turrets become exclusively yours. Relax in the delightfully decorated West Wing Apartment (which sleeps ten), the perfect base from which to explore the stunning landscapes and wonderful golden sandy beaches along the Aberdeenshire coastline. The refurbishment of eight new beautiful bedrooms on the top floor is now complete and means that up to 26 guests can be happily accommodated. All this heritage and splendour doesn’t mean seclusion; Cluny Castle is 20-minutes from Aberdeen airport, with award-winning golf courses, hill walking, mountain biking and pony trekking on its doorstep. This is country living like you’ve never seen it before.
