Aboyne Aberdeenshire is largely the creation of Sir Cunliffe Brooks of Glentanar (whose daughter had married the 11th Marquess of Huntly) and dates from the 1880s.

The original Charleston of Aboyne owed its origin to Charles Gordon, lst Earl of Aboyne, the fourth son of George, 2nd Marquess of Huntly, who in 1670 obtained a charter giving him authority to erect a burgh of barony in close proximity to Aboyne Castle. Aboyne provides the day visitor a holiday maker and interesting destination for there holiday providing a great accommodation base.

Aboyne offers a great place for active holidays including gliding, golf, fishing an much more, so if your looking for activities on your vacation or even just like to chill out Aboyne offers so much for it's visitors to enjoy.

  • It is not, however, without its architectural distinction, two notable highlights being the Victory Hall and War Memorial and St Thomas’s Episcopal Church.
  • Preserved at the Castle is the Formaston Stone dating from between A.D. 800 and A.D. 1000, which shows the mirror symbol, part of an elaborately designed Celtic cross, and an inscription in Ogham.

The first Aboyne Castle, which appears in 13th cent records as the ‘castrum de Obeyn’, a great place to visit during your holiday, it was built with a a motle and bailey stronghold, was followed by a stone keep, which was replaced in the 17th century by a tower house, part of which still stands at the west end of the mansion house built in 1801 and transformed in the 1880s by Sir Cunliffe Brooks, who added the present baronial trimmings.e is famous for its annual Games, held in September on the natural arena of the Green of Charleston, with its March of the Clansmen with their pipes and pennants. The games in their present form were started in 1867, but it is claimed that they are a revival of a much older gathering suppressed after the ’45 Rising.
