North east Scotland offers a unique variety of heritage and experiences. Stately Travel allows you to discover and enjoy these in relaxing and luxurious style in a chauffeur driven 1959 Bentley S1, one of the last produced and one of under 20 survivors registered in the UK.
Stately Travel plans its day tours around your wishes. We can recommend combinations of attractions to visit, taking your interests into account, but the choice is yours – our customer.
Aberdeenshire’s hospitality is warm and of high quality. Stately Travel will help to make the most of your visit to the area, whether it’s to explore our heritage, find high quality local crafts and gifts or improve your knowledge of our local malt whiskies, each uniquely crafted.
You can book from the selection of tours on our website. Or to help us plan a unique day for you, please contact us at email@example.com, telling us where and when you are staying and what your interests are. We shall then design a choice of itineraries for you to select from.
Aberdeenshire has Scotland’s only Castle Trail where you can explore not just the buildings but also discover the history of the families who owned them through the centuries. Stately Travel will plan your day to visit castles of your choice, or a combination of castles and gardens or distilleries in the style and luxury of a more relaxed and elegant age of motoring.
Our castles vary in size, setting and character but all have something to offer – painted ceilings, paintings by old masters, allegiances with Napoleon, collections of armour or ghosts.
There are seven working malt distilleries which offer visitor tours in Aberdeenshire. None are less than 100 years old, one has been producing malt whisky for over 200 years and two have almost reached that age.
All produce unique and high quality whiskies with individual characteristics. You can safely sample these on distillery visits when on a Stately Travel tour – most of our distilleries are in the countryside.
Some distilleries even offer you the opportunity to bottle your own whisky – a unique souvenir of your visit.
Our coastline is 165 miles long and offers everything from some of the longest sandy beaches in the country to precipitous cliffs, rocky shorelines and coves housing old fishing villages.
Among these is Pennan, star of Local Hero, situated on the northern coastline in Scotland’s dolphin country, whilst on the eastern coastline you can sample the catch of the day in a harbourside restaurant at Gourdon, a few yards from the quay on which it is landed.
The sea has played a big part in Aberdeenshire’s past and present and Peterhead and Fraserburgh remain two of the country’s most important fishing ports.
