Zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam personeel. Prachtige locatie. Ideaal om uit te rusten.

Mooi gelegen kasteel lzngs de fietsknooppunten. Leuk terras met zicht op het binnenplein van het kasteel. Het aanbod van dranken viel wel serieus tegen. De keuze aan bieren mag fors uitgebreid worden alsook de keuze van wijnen. Ik miste wat streekbieren en wijnen op de kaart! Voor de rest wel een ideale tussenstop!

Een geweldige plek om te verblijven, alleen of in kleine of grotere groep. Ideaal voor de meerwaardezoeker naar rust, authentieke beleving en zorgzaamheid die menselijk en niet commercieel gericht is. Gelegen in prachtig park. De keuken is top. Gevarieerd, gezond, plaatselijk bereid door fantastische kok en keukenploeg.

Easter Aquhorthies Stone Circle

Easter Aquhorthies stone circle, located near Inverurie, is one of the best-preserved examples of a recumbent stone circle, and one of the few that still have their full complement of stones. It consists of a ring of nine stones, eight of which are grey granite and one red jasper. Two more grey granite stones flank a recumbent of red granite flecked with crystals and lines of quartz. The circle is particularly notable for its builders' use of polychromy in the stones, with the reddish ones situated on the SSW side and the grey ones opposite.

The placename Aquhorthies derives from a Scottish Gaelic word meaning 'field of prayer', and may indicate a 'long continuity of sanctity' between the Stone or Bronze Age circle builders and their much later Gaelic successors millennia later. The circle's surroundings were landscaped in the late 19th century, and it sits within a small fenced and walled enclosure. A stone dyke, known as a roundel, was built around the circle some time between 1847 and 1866–7.
