This was an excellent choice for a family day out during the October school holidays. The meat served in the restaurant is produced on the farm, and is absolutely delicious. Choice of veg was a bit limited, but for children it's just right. Lots of activities for old and young, friendly, knowledgeable staff...what more can one look for?

This review is for the cafe only as we didn't try any activities. We had a bowl of soup, a toastie and 2 bottles of water and paid £12. It was nice but overpriced.

Visited with a 3 year old and 8 month old as the website listed children's activities which would keep little ones amused for hours while mum and dad could grab a coffee. When we arrived I was disappointed. It was only £2 to get in but sadly the children's area was very run down and lacking. The soft play area... More

We spent a fantastic day in Deeside a few years ago and decided to repeat again this year. I called to book a days activities for shooting, fishing, quad biking and off roading and after I had done so, booked a hotel in Aboyne. All good so far. A couple of weeks ago I was sent an email stating that... More

Great food served here and you can even take some away home with you too. The Cairnton Aberdeen Angus beef is wonderful. Don't miss the steak pie and home-made soup. Cannot comment on the activities as we did not partake ourselves but it looked like fun was being had by those we watched .

Not as young or as fit now, however the Activity Centre provided the activity I can still enjoy. The carvery was excellent with very good quality home cooked food. The staff were friendly and helpful. Looking around others were definitely enjoying themselves. Would recommend.
