Food & Drink
Craft brewing is big in Aberdeenshire and we are fortunate to have Brew Dog located in nearby Ellon. The brewery offer tours and the bar and restaurant area are a brilliant stop over after a day or morning exploring the nearby beaches. If whisky is your thing then The Glen Garioch Distillery is a popular attraction offering tastings and tours throughout the summer.
There is also no shortage of great cafés and places to eat in the area. The Ythanview Hotel in Methlick always has a good selection of real ales on draft and is only a short cycle away. The hotel bar is an excellent spot for lunch or an evening meal, especially by the open fire. Haddo House Country Park has a National Trust café and a visit wouldn't be complete without a stop at Mrs Smiths café in the park for a warm scone.
If you head to Ellon, there are lots of great spots for lunch or a coffee and cake, too many to mention but it's nice to make your own discoveries anyway.
