On the banks of the Loch of Aboyne sits Lodge on the Loch, a luxury spa and golf retreat with 4 star rooms and suites. Surrounded by stunning views of Mount Keen and Mount Lochnager, two of Scotland's most iconic Munros, the Lodge on the Loch is the perfect place to relax and unwind. In the evening, have a meal at the Osprey Restaurant and enjoy the uninterrupted views of the water and the Caingorms National Park. If you're lucky, you may even spot an osprey.
The hotel also offers Conference Delegate Packages and is amongst the best corporate venues in Royal Deeside.
All rooms have en-suite bathrooms and comfortable king size beds as standard. Larger suites are complete with luxuries such as under-floor heating, a sauna and a Jacuzzi. All rooms have beautiful surrounding views over the Munros.
On the doorstep and nearby
The Lodge on the Loch is the ideal base from which to explore the Scottish countryside. Both Royal Deeside and the Cairngorms National Park are great for walking, with hundreds of footpaths to suit all levels. Royal Deeside is also home to several 9-hole and 18-hole golf courses. Look out for The Royal Deeside Classic, a 72-hole Stableford event that takes place every year over the courses of Aboyne, Ballater, Banchory and Braemar.
If you have time, head to one of the fisheries at Tullich, Strachan or Raemoir. The Loch of Aboyne provides seasonal fishing with resident species including bream, pike, carp and roach. If the weather's not on your side, be sure to pay a visit to Balmoral Castle or one of the many whiskey distilleries.
