Designed by Scottish architect William Adam in 1732, Haddo House near Aberdeen is a magnificent example of an historic Scottish stately home.
Originally Palladian in style, the house now has late Victorian interiors after a 19th-century refurbishment and is renowned for its stunning decorated ceilings.
It also has impressive collections of period furniture, ceramics and art, including paintings by Sir Thomas Lawrence and James Giles.
The house is open for guided tours only but the grounds are open all the time. These include the formal terrace garden and Haddo Country Park, with its lakes, monuments, woodland walks and deer park.
