The Private House Stay's Guide


A beautiful area of countryside that follows the river don from Aberdeen west in to the Cairngorms. Not quite as famous as Royal Deeside but just as beautiful and part of the Queen's Trail that is recognised as part of Queen Victoria's most favourite areas for walking and touring. The focus town for the area is Alford which houses the Grampian Transport Museum, Haughton Country Park and the Alford valley railway. The Lonach gathering highland games are a major attraction on the 4th Saturday of every August.
