Scotland: Castle Trail Deeside Aberdeenshire Day Questions

Jump to last reply

Do you think this is too much for one day? What if we cut out Crathes Castle gardens? Still too much for one day? Most likely we will end up doing Crathes randomly and separately since it's only 30 min from Aberdeen and we've been there before.

Start: Aberdeen
*Crathes Castle early (gardens only - already have been inside the castle)
*Finzean Estate Tea Room, between Aboyne and Banchory (tea or breakfast until 11:30, lunch 12:00-3:30)
*Craiglever Castle
*Kildrummy Castle
*Braemer (town) or skip the town and drive to the end of the road to look around, not hike (Linn O' Dee)
*Ballater to Loch Muick - to look around, not hike
*Tease Coffee Bar, Banchory (if needed)

or we can do this in reverse.

If it's too much, what should we take out to do on another day?

Can anyone tell me more about getting to Linn O'Dee from Braemer? I know there is a car park and toilets.

Thanks as always.
