Dunnottar Castle and Royal Deeside 1-Day Tour from Aberdeen

1. Dunnottar Castle and Royal Deeside 1-Day Tour from Aberdeen

Travel in style in a Mercedes luxury 16-seat mini-coach from Aberdeen to one of Scotland’s archetypal structures, Dunnottar Castle. Witness the stunning fortress set on a cliff by the sea. It’s seen more battles than you’ve had cups of tea and is an essential Scottish destination. Your next stop is the Falls of Feugh. These cascading falls are mesmerizing; and if you’re lucky, you may even spot a salmon jumping up the river. It’s now time for lunch in Braemar, a lovely little village in the Cairngorms National Park with royal connections and plenty of local delicacies to try. After your delicious lunch, you'll then head to the Muir of Dinnet Nature Reserve and get the opportunity to go for a stroll. Keep your eyes peeled for otters, birds, and adders on this quintessential woodland walk. You leave the Cairngorms National Park and arrive in Aberdeen in the early evening.

What people are saying about Banchory

Great tour, great guide, perfect day! Dunnottar castle - how impressive! - I could have spent an entire day there. Maybe the stop could have been extended at least by half an hour, but still you can see a lot in that time and decide to get back there on your own again for exploring the site again. It was amazing! All stops were great and always well timed. Alice is so friendly and has an eye for also very small nice things to point out and show (jumping salmons, Scottish cattle, ...) - exactly what I expect from visiting Scotland and taking such a tour. You have a really nice and friendly atmosphere in the bus, but still your privacy when strolling around at the stops. Alice told us her own stories and experiences and fully understood that the entire group was late since Balmoral Castle was made publicly accessible by the King and of course no one wanted to miss out this. That we then also saw a royal car could of course not be planed but definitely rounded off the highlights. Thanks!

It was a very successful day! We were taken by Neill to all kinds of points including: Dunnottar Castle, Burn O'Vat, the town of Braemer, Balmoral Castle etc. We stopped at nice views. We did a lot that day, saw a lot and learned a lot about Scotland. Really a strong recommendation. We personally found Dunnottar Castle breathtaking!

Went on a day tour to the Dunnottar Castle and Royal Deeside. Amazing service from Rabbie's! No hastle,no complaints. Special thanks to Alice, our guide for the day. What an enthusiastic young lady.
