Not far from Aberdeen and right on the edge of the River Dee with a golf course just impoverished the river. The food was excellent and where the friendly staff.

Can't fault this hotel apart from one of the doorways on a first floor corridor is a little low and bending down to miss it is a mild inconvenience for those over 6ft tall.

The restaurant of the Maryculter House Hotel can also be reserved if you are not a hotel guest. We went here with friends and we had an excellent dinner. The staff is really helpful and the chef deserves a Michelin star. He is really creative. The deep-fried icecream is highly recommended.
