Location

Stonehaven is a town in the north east of Scotland, located 16 miles south of Aberdeen. The town developed as a fishing port and as the county town of Kincardineshire it featured (as did the surrounding area) in the recently released film adaptation of Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s classic ‘Sunset Song’.
The town has been a traditional tourist destination for many years. It has become increasingly popular with overseas visitors who come to see the iconic scottish fortress, Dunnottar Castle. The town benefits from a delightful harbour area with fine traditional pubs and restaurants.
Stonehaven hosts its world famous Hogmanay fire ball procession and music event on New Year’s Eve in the town centre.
Stonehaven is excellently situated for transport. The train station is served by frequent services to Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, East Coast Line to London and Cross Country to Birmingham and the West Country. The station benefits from the advantage of free car parking.
Buses regularly run from the town to Aberdeen, Dundee and Perth. The town is adjacent to the A90 allowing easy access to Aberdeen and the north; Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow to the south.
Stonehaven itself has nursery, primary and secondary education. Lathallan offers nursery, junior and senior schooling. Other private schools in Aberdeen are well connected by the public transport services above.

Stonehaven will be at the southern end of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route that is scheduled to be completed in 2018. This will allow rapid access to Aberdeen Airport and business areas to the west and north of Aberdeen. Aberdeen Airport offers direct flights to hubs in London, Paris, Amsterdam and Frankfurt. The airport is also a hub for the main transport routes for personnel working on the offshore oil and gas installations.

Description

In a bygone era the part of the castle that is now South Range was the grand ballroom. South facing views capture a wonderful vista of rolling countryside, the Carron water and a woodland valley which is a haven for wildlife and birds. Internally, the presentation is at a ready-to-move-into level, with high quality self coloured carpets, neutral decoration and most rooms enjoying an abundance of natural light. As you would expect from a property of this era there are high ceilings, large windows and panelled doors. Well suited for couples and families, there is a real sense of residents’ community spirit within the castle.

Accommodation
The current configuration gives a wonderful feeling of space with generously sized accommodation throughout. The welcoming reception hallway gives independent access to the original and historic vaulted cellars. These rooms are extremely versatile and offer great scope for conversion to further accommodation. Accessed via an elongated hallway is the laundry room which offers great utility space and access into the sheltered rear courtyard. At mezzanine level is a cloakroom with a white WC and wash hand basin. On reaching the first floor, a superb large landing window has fitted window seats to take full advantage of afternoon sunlight. Most elegant is the south facing drawing room with extra height window to capture the stunning countryside views which include a 15th century doocot and ice house. A focal point of this room is the fireplace housing a coal effect gas fire which could easily incorporate a wood burning stove with the necessary alterations. Again the formal dining room has the same advantage of a large south facing window for further views. An upper mezzanine gives access to the dining kitchen which offers casual eating space and has twin aspect windows. A further floor gives access to the well appointed principal bedroom with en suite shower room and again this is a room which affords stunning views. A guest bedroom benefits from a south facing aspect, bedroom 3 has a large roof light and bedroom 4 with twin aspect windows is presently used as a study.
