Apartment 20 is situated on the grounds of Inchmarlo Golf resort. Just a short walk will take you to the Pro shop and driving range of the 9 hole Queens course. A newly opened and refurbished restaurant sits next to the course and is open to all. Enjoy the stunning scenery with views over Scolty Hill with only a short walk to the small town of Banchory via a footpath.
There are numerous woodland walks in the area including Corsee woods which can be reached by a footpath from Inchmarlo. Scolty Hill, Shooting Greens and the Deeside Way offer a leisurely walk whilst Clachanaben, Hill of Fare & nearby Lochnagar & Loch Muick offer more for hill walkers. All of these routes are also great for runners and mountain bikers.
For road cyclists this area is a haven! Take a gentle ride to Ballater for a coffee stop along either the North or South Deeside Road or try out your Stava on the Cairn O' Mount for that all essential King or Queen of the mountain! It's sure to make your legs work hard!
For the more leisurely day out why not take a trip to Crathes castle situated at the other end of Banchory. Take a stroll around the walled gardens or if you're feeling energetic and want to hang around the trees Crathes castle has a 'Go Ape' adventure playground on site. Enjoy the views of the Dee valley whilst taking a short drive to the Queens residence at Balmoral Castle or a whisky tour.
