Planning your visit

We want you to enjoy your visit to the grounds – your safety is our priority. This means we’ve had to make some changes so that we can keep everyone safe. Please read our Guide on what to expect before you set off.

This property is part of the 'We're Good to Go' scheme, which means we have carried out an official COVID-19 risk assessment to check we have everything in place to reopen safely.


Drone flying is not permitted at this property without prior permission and approval. Commercial operators should contact the Trust’s Filming Manager at filming@nts.org.uk.

For more information about planning your visit, please see our drop-down facilities below or our frequently asked questions.

Facilities & access

The walled garden is on a slope above the main car park, which can prove difficult for those with mobility issues. If this is the case, we recommend that you park at the stable block at the top of the garden and enter the garden there.

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.

There are accessible car parking spaces immediately outside the Hall.

Buggy access
Coach parking

Dogs are welcome on the estate and on our trails, but are not permitted in the walled garden nor in the Hall itself. If you’d like to enjoy something from the tearoom while visiting with your dog, please ask our staff and they’ll bring your order out to you at the picnic tables.

Assistance dogs are welcome in all areas.

Parking is free for members of the National Trust for Scotland. Pay & Display charges apply otherwise.

There’s ample parking in the main car park.

Enjoy a picnic on the lawn and take in the beautiful surroundings.

Visits to the hall are by guided tour but you can explore the beautiful garden and grounds at your own pace.

The walled garden is filled with interesting architectural features as well as boasting marvellous views.

Explore one of our three waymarked trails around the estate and enjoy lovely views of the surrounding Aberdeenshire countryside.
