Douneside House

Douneside House

Douneside House is a holiday country house one hour west of Aberdeen in Royal Deeside. The house is held by the MacRobert Trust for the use of serving and retired officers of the UK Armed Services, NATO and Commonwealth nations. (The MacRobert family lost 3 sons in the air in the 1930s/40s – one in an air accident, two on operational sorties in WW2, hence the bequest of the House into trust for R&R use by the Armed Forces). The House is open May-Oct (and Xmas) and always run by a retired officer. Full board for ‘entitled’ guests is about £78 pd – sounds a lot, but the food and service is fantastic, with significant reductions for children. There is a lot to do in and around the house and its magnificent gardens, and superb outdoor and cultural activities in the Deeside area. Many regiments over the years have had Officers’ Mess ‘away events’ at Douneside. If you know nothing about Douneside, at least look at the website: www.dounesidehouse.co.uk
