The basics

Within the landscaped grounds of Haddo Country Park stands Haddo House, a grand family estate once owned by the Gordon family and now owned by the Scottish National Trust and open to the public. Like most Scottish castles and stately homes, Haddo was a family home, and relics from the Gordon family’s 400-year occupation of the house can be seen in every room and corridor and on every wall.

Easy to reach from Aberdeen, Haddo House has a nearby deer park to explore and walks into the hills where Aberdeenshire meets the Highlands. Experience the peace and tranquility of this special place, and learn about the rich history of Scotland’s lairds and ladies as you wander the historic gardens and chambers. Enjoy the extensive art collection spread throughout Haddo House, from paintings by acclaimed Scottish artists to sculptures, ceramics, and rare furniture pieces.
