Situated 30 minutes' drive from Aberdeen, Wardhill Castle is in a prime location from which to explore everything this beautiful part of Scotland has to offer.


For outdoor enthusiasts, why not spend your afternoons exploring arguably one of the most picturesque parts of the world? There are trails within the estate for a leisurely stroll or slightly more taxing options available further afield.

Whisky Trail

Aberdeenshire is home to some of the world's oldest and most famous whisky distilleries, and the iconic 'Whisky Trail' that runs from distillery to distillery up the Spey river won’t be rivalled.


Some of the best courses, including the 6th oldest course in the world, are found in Aberdeenshire, a golfer’s paradise, with over 50 courses to play in the region.


Even the most inexperienced of anglers can enjoy a day out fishing in Aberdeenshire. A day spent along the banks of one of the region’s many rivers is relaxing, whether you catch something or not!

Horse Riding

This is the perfect way to explore the beautiful Aberdeenshire landscape which surrounds Wardhill Castle. There are a number of equestrian centres within a stone’s throw of the castle estate.

Driven Pheasant

Pheasant shoots are available on a number of estates throughout Aberdeenshire.

Deer Stalking

The region supports a thriving population of red and roe deer and the historic practice of deer stalking is as popular as ever in Aberdeenshire, more so due to the rise of photographic stalking. Spend a day exploring the stunning Scottish countryside with your camera in hand.
