Nestled in the Aberdeenshire countryside is the pleasant town of Huntly. The town’s main attraction is the magnificent ruins of Huntly Castle, the 12th Century motte and bailey style castle served as a residence for many centuries, and is said to have sheltered Robert the Bruce in the 14th Century. Leith Hall provides beautifully maintained gardens to enjoy a stroll, and a number of marked mixed woodland walks. Huntly Golf Club is set in the rolling parkland between the Rivers Deveron and Bogie, with the castle providing a magnificent backdrop to the 2nd hole. The town is situated on edge of the Speyside Whisky trail, and a few miles north east is the Glendronach Distillery, offering tours of the facilities. For those looking for a bit of adventure, take a trip to the Huntly Nordic Outdoor Centre, offering a range of activities, including recreational skiing, and mountain biking.
