Thank you Francis for an amazing holiday in Stonehaven and for being so thoughtful and helpful. The apartment was lovely and felt every bit a home from home. There was everything you could possibly need and more. We were really comfortable and you can tell there has been a lot of thought, effort and attention to detail, put into making this apartment a welcoming comfortable place to stay. I can highly recommend staying here.
We booked this week in particular to see the Stonehaven Hogmanay Fireballs and were not disappointed. There was street entertainment by a Pipe Band and street drummers before the parade. The ceremony started at midnight and there were 50 or so men and women paraded up and down the High Street swinging fiercely flaming balls around their heads. This finished with them being thrown into the harbour and a fantastic fireworks display.
Stonehaven is a lovely place to visit with some fantastic coastal walks for all the family. we especially enjoyed visiting Dunnottar Castle. During our stay we visited Aviemore (which is about 2 hours by car) taking the Funicular railway to the top of the mountain, which has some fantastic views over the Caingorms. Another place we found was Newburgh Beach (about 40 mins drive) which is a lovely beach and home to a large seal colony.
We all really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
Great place to spend a week in Aberdeen area. The apartment clean, well-maintained, and spacious for 2. We received excellent customer service and were treated more like a life-long friend than a customer. Stonehaven harbor is just outside the door with several restaurants and pubs near by. The downtown area is a short walk away. Dunnottar Castle is a healthy hike with the trailhead at the end of the harbor. Lots of sights to see on days trips by car. We had a few opportunities to sit outside of the Marine Restaurant and Pub. Nothing like enjoying a few fine cast ales while looking out across the harbor. We would recommend this to friends and family. We have more trips to Scotland planned and will hopefully stay here again.
