Wreaton has the most outstanding location, just on the edge of Aboyne. Aboyne lies on the north side of the River Dee and is located within the heart of Royal Deeside between the desirable towns of Banchory, only 14 miles, and Ballater, 10 miles. The location is about 10 minutes’ drive from the Cairngorms National park boundary and offers an array of outdoor leisure activities including salmon fishing on the River Dee, horse riding, mountain biking, forest and hill walking, good local and international golf courses, gliding, canoeing, shooting and snowboarding. The popular Deeside Way is easily accessible from the property and allows you to walk, cycle or hack east to Aboyne and west, through to Dinnet & Ballater. In only a few minutes you can enjoy the trail along the North banks of the River Dee by foot or bike and the ski centres at Glenshee & the Lecht are within a short travelling distance.
