Our Charity Ball was held on 24th Feb and from start to finish the Hotel and management were brilliant with their organisation and their generosity.

Dear ccn1959,

Thank you for your enquiry, we are about 8 miles from Fraser Castle and we are also 16 miles from Fyvie Castle, both are very reachable and highly recommended. We are to soon have an offer go live on the macdonald hotel website with an overnight stay to include complimentary entrance into either Fraser or Fyvie Castle for 2 people and also afternoon tea at Pittodrie House, this should be live online by the weekend. If we can help you further please don't hesitate to contact me personally Best Regards Adam (General Manager)
