Craigston Castle
AB53 5PX

Getting here:

Craigston is located 35 miles (56 km) from Aberdeen (Dyce) airport on the northeast coast of Scotland, between Turriff and Banff.

By Car

Take the A947 from Aberdeen towards Banff. About a mile and a half after you go through Turriff you take a right hand turn on to the B9105 in the direction of Fraserburgh. After a few miles you will go through a series of sharp bends (with the small community of Fintry on your left hand side) and then at the start of some woodland you will see the Craigston front lodge and some green gates on your right. Please drive through the green gates and follow the drive. Keep left at the first fork in the road and cross over the burn (using either the low or the castellated bridge) and then as you rise up after this follow the drive right to the castle.

By Air
