A castle in Scotland

Aberdeenshire castle trail

Scottish castles showcase this country’s heritage beautifully. With our Aberdeen car hire, you can drive to ancient ruins like impressive Dunnottar Castle. Graced by famous monarchs such as Mary Queen of Scots and the site of a significant battle against Cromwell’s army, the castle gives a fascinating insight into Scottish history. Balmoral, the Scottish home of the British Royal Family, is magnificent inside and out, with its Lochnager mountain backdrop. Beautiful Crathes is a true fairy-tale castle.

Malt Whisky in Scotland

Malt Whisky Trail

Car hire in Aberdeen gives you the freedom to enjoy everything that beautiful Aberdeenshire has to offer. Other than haggis, Scotland’s most famous product is whisky and driving the whisky trail around Speyside is a popular attraction. The trail takes in the region’s host of distilleries - from Benromach, the smallest, to the home of the world’s most popular single malt, Glenfiddich. If you can appoint a driver, sample ‘a wee dram’ and learn about the fascinating art of whisky-making.
