Our day will start with a visit to New Slain Castle perched on the edge of the cliffs near Cruden Bay. The castle was first built around 1597 and is famous for its connection with Bram Stoker, as the likely inspiration for his legendary character Dracula. With striking views of the coastline, this castle ruin is nearly picture perfect.
Next on our tour is House of Schivas. Discover the stories of the five generations who called it home and their contributions to the estate and the community. Visiting this castle is like taking look behind the scenes of the family and don’t forget the ghost of Mary Grey who they claim haunts the castle still! With beautiful grounds and a walled garden House of Schivas is sure to please.
Now it is time for some lunch. We’ll enjoy a taste of the local food and drink at one of the area’s restaurants for before we head to BrewDog.
