Nice warm pool, plenty of seats around, slide was great fun! My 10 year old nephew wasn't a fan of the mouthfuls of salt water though lol. Also fancied the midnight swim but tired ourselves out too much during the day but will be giving it a go in the future! Had a lovely coffee in the cafe as well... More

We love Stonehaven and visit it quite,a few times over the year, staying in our touring caravan. Our 2 boys particularly enjoy the beautiful outdoor pool, and so,far any time we've visited between June and September we've been really lucky with the weather. The boys have been in the pool every day and now resemble salty prunes! Fantastic pool, lovely... More

It's a fantastic pool. 50m long, always warm. Went for my first midnight swim. It was very busy, but it's a big pool. Will be visiting the midnight swims again this year.

A great treat, a warm salt water outdoor pool, what more could you want. Shame about the parking thou, I don't know how those people in Cowie cope with all the inconsiderate parkers on the road by the beech.

Enjoyed swim in HEATED open air pool. Sea water and relatively low chlorine make this a better option than noisy indoor pools. Well done Stonehaven.

Travelled up from Perth and boy this place did not disappoint. It is like stepping back into a different era but the only fault is the slow service at the cafe hatched, the pool was only relatively busy and I cannot imagine how long you would have to wait when it is at full capacity (15 minute wait for a...

Oh my! Delighted you enjoyed the Pool and felt it was worth the journey, but we're really sorry about the long wait at the Splash cafe window - that certainly isn't always the case unless of course you're waiting for food to be cooked. Thank you for bringing it to our attention, and please be assured it will be followed... More

Saw the signpost from the road side and decided to give it a go. Wow, what a find. It was like a blast from the past, totally retro, made me feel like a child again. The pool was like a warm bath, the staff were courteous and efficient. Well worth the time and money.

Wonderful Heated Outdoor Pool situated in an area which is inclined to be cold. Changing rooms are from a bygone era and that adds to the charm. Running from the changing room to the pool is a chilling experience but the feeling once you are submerged is wonderful, even if it rains. A great and safe place to entertain children... More
