This stunning 12th century castle has been in the Leslie family for over 800 years. Surrounded by breathtaking views of the Bennachie hill tops in the heart of Aberdeenshire it offers a unique backdrop for weddings, parties and weekends away. 

Wardhill estate is one of the oldest privately owned estates in North-East Scotland and boasts beautiful parkland around the castle which provides for scenic walks, and managed forestry offering wonderful woodland retreats.

The castle itself is available to hire out on a self catered or catered basis, and can sleep 16 people in newly decorated bedrooms with modern bathrooms and a new kitchen. The Estate is only a short distance from Aberdeen airport, with many local attractions such as a world class golf course, the whisky trail and a fantastic array of beautiful castles to explore.

There is a large head of award winning sheep that graze the open parkland on the estate throughout the year, and provides fresh lamb to the local community.

The grass fields are sprayed annually with limestone and fertiliser to enhance the growing conditions and produce a fantastic dark green finish.

In addition there are 400 acres of managed woodland to explore.
