Our selected hotels in Aberdeen, Cruden Bay and Fraserburgh.

Marcliffe Hotel*****- Aberdeen

The most golf-oriented hotel in Aberdeen, without a shadow of a doubt!  The owner, Stewart Spence has been addicted to the game all his life and has done an awful lot for the game in Aberdeenshire over his lifetime.  In his luxurious hotel, golfers will find the warmest of welcomes.

On the western outskirts of town, the Marcliffe offers very comfortable bedrooms, an inviting loung and bar, and a top-notch restaurant to boot!

The location works well too, as you can skirt the city traffic to get to the golf courses in the morning and later in the evening the bright lights are only a five-minute taxi ride away.  Although once you settle by the fire and the aromas from the restaurant infiltrate your nostrils you might find it hard to stray...

The Marcliffe also has a small spa facility too, no pool, but an array of massages and beauty therapies to revive any flagging golf-muscles.

Kilmarnock Arms*** - Cruden Bay

Cruden Bay is a quiet little Scottish seaside spot that is busy in the Summer and at weekends due to its long sandy bays.  In the centre of the village, not far from the Golf Club, is the cosy Kilmarnock Arms hotel.

Accommodation in this fine old building is fairly simple, but crucially warm, dry and comfortable too.  Downstairs is the most popular bar and renstaurant in Cruden Bay, so there is always plenty of life about the place.

A simple, solid base for golfing the Aberdeenshire coast, where you're sure to feel at home and be welcomed by the locals!

Tufted Duck*** - Fraserburgh

To be honest, the Tufted Duck is a little unprepossessing from the outside, but once inside this low-slung modern hotel looking out, it's a nice place to be.  Bedrooms are spacious and bathrooms good (plenty of hot water).  The restaurant is relaxed and staffed by locals who are happy to stop and chat - a great source of local info.

The attached bar 'Zanders' is open to the village and seems to specialise in cheap lager and loud music, so probably best avoided!  (The same could be said of Fraserburgh itself).
