River Don, Inverurie

The perfect touring base surrounded by the forested Bennachie hills, Inverurie is a mere 16 miles north west of Aberdeen and sits conveniently along the A96 main Inverness route into the Highlands. Speyside whisky trails, castle trails, Royal Deeside, world class golf courses and the many attractions of Aberdeen city are all within an hour's drive of Inverurie and Aberdeen Airport is just a 15 minute drive to the south east.

Capital of the Garioch area (pronounced Geeree), Inverurie's motto is a fair description - 'Urbs in Rure', Town in the Country. A real 'Taste of the Grampian' is on the menu in this Aberdeenshire market town acclaimed for its local produce. Inverurie plays host to one of the North East's best food and drink festivals annually in early June and holds its 'must visit' farmers' market on the second Saturday of each month around Market Place, a true showcase of Aberdeenshire food.

A host of family fun and challenging outdoor activities sit right on Inverurie's doorstep in the Bailies of Bennachie. Start your exploration of the area at the family friendly Bennachie Visitor Centre just west of Inverurie, with exhibitions, picnic tables, trails and guided walks. The Bailies, or hills, of Bennachie feature nine distinct tops with the highest, Oxen Craig reaching 528m. Premier angling is also in the area on the Rivers Don and Ury and enjoy first class golf at Inverurie's 18 hole golf course. Browse and book places to stay in Inverurie online now.
