Located in the grounds of an enchanting 16th-century castle, Crathes is surrounded by 240 hectares of formal gardens, woodland walks and rolling Scottish countryside. Our Aberdeenshire adventure features its very own Skateboard Zip for you to jump onboard. With the castle a stones throw away from the course and a cafe nearby there is plenty to do for a whole day out.
