Situated on the edge of the popular Speyside whisky trail, the town of Huntly provides a great base for exploring the attractions in the surrounding area.
This neat little town is an interesting place to stroll around. Huntly’s most popular attraction are the ruins of Huntly Castle. Once a luxurious residence of the Earls of Huntly, one of the most important Catholic families in Scotland, it provided shelter across the years to Robert the Bruce and Mary of Guise amongst others. Seven miles south of Huntly sits Leith Hall, a stunning country house run by National Trust for Scotland. Set in a 286-acre estate, the scenic gardens contain flowering trees and shrubs, roses, fruit and vegetables and a little winding stream making it a pleasant place for wondering. A variety of birds of prey in action can be seen at the North East Falconry Centre.
