SITUATIONThe River Dee is one of the most famous and beautiful salmon rivers in Scotland. It rises from two sources in Mar Forest, just below 4,000 feet in the Cairngorm Mountains and drains an area of over 800 square miles. The river flows through Royal Deeside where there is an abundance of spawning ground and nursery areas. It continues through a variety of Highland and Lowland Scenery for over ninety miles before reaching the North Sea in Aberdeen. With around 55 golf courses and claiming two of the top 10 oldest courses in the world, Aberdeenshire is a golfing paradise with a variety of championship, traditional links and parkland courses. These holiday lodges would be a great base for keen golfers given that three popular golf courses are all very close by including Stonehaven Golf Club, 8 miles, and both Peterculter Golf Club and the extremely popular Royal Deeside Gold Club are both only a 15 minute drive away. Slightly further afield, yet easily accessed by the impending new AWPR, you will find the renowned Royal Aberdeen Golf Club who were hosts to the Scottish Open in 2014 and, Aberdeenshire’s newest golf course, Trump International Golf Links, which has just announced its second course. The course is set against the dramatic backdrop of miles of coastal views and is being enjoyed by keen golfers from across the world.When it comes to castles, Aberdeenshire is the place to visit as there are understood to be over 300 in total and there is simply no other county in the UK with more per square mile. Particularly close by is the incredible Dunnottar Castle being an iconic ruin perched on a headland with dramatic sheer cliffs on all sides. Also within a short drive is the Crathes Castle & Drum Castle, Gardens & Estate. Banchory is also only 13 miles to the West which is the gateway to the world renowned Royal Deeside where both Balmoral Castle & Braemar lie. Of particular note, the 41 mile-long Deeside Way which runs from the city centre through Royal Deeside.Aberdeen City is some 10 miles, and provides all the leisure, recreational and entertainment facilities expected from the oil capital of Europe. It also provides good transport links with a mainline railway station, only 10 miles away, and is host to an airport providing both domestic and international flights. The soon to be completed AWPR, is located a short drive away giving very easy access to both the North & South of the city and in particular to Aberdeen International Airport, which will be even quicker than the current 35 minute travelling distance.LODGESThere are three linked proposed holiday lodges, designed and perfectly positioned overlooking the River Dee.
