About the neighbourhood
Scotland is always an interesting place to visit, it’s a place of mythical creatures, highlands, interesting food, men who wear skirts and whisky. Or better yet that’s what people think about when they hear the name. Modern-day Scotland on the other hand, while still featuring all of the above, offers so much more to those who choose to travel there. Perfectly positioned for access to both the coast and countryside, WindyHeads is the ideal location to base your Highland holiday. From the famous whisky trail to endless outdoor activities, this area is certainly one which provides for the whole family. There are many golf courses at hand, as well as easy access to Pitmedden Gardens, Haddo House and some of Scotland’s most beautiful beaches
