Local information

Important local information to enhance your stay including nearby attractions surrounding Leslie Castle Guesthouse / Holiday Home.

  1. There is lovely Picture gallery and framers in Leslie village. Turn right out of the Castle and follow the road into Leslie and turn left past the old church.
  2. Insch airfield is a short walk away, left from the Castle where microlighters and light aircraft have a clubhouse.
  3. Dunnydeer hillfort ruin by Insch can be seen on a hill to the north from the Castle and is easily accessed, head out of Insch on Western Road to a small carpark on the left. After a short but steep climb you will be rewarded with great views of the surrounding countryside.
  4. The local hillwalking favourite Bennachie can be accessed from the Back of Bennachie Forest walks carpark: turn left and follow the road straight at the crossroads in Auchleven/Premnay and on towards Oyne, a 10-minute drive away.
  5. There is a newly refurbished pub in Auchleven/Premnay called the New Moon Bar, about 1 ½ miles away. It is open Thursday through Sunday evenings with occasional live music nights.
  6. For a “lil” taste of the USA there is a great all-American BBQ restaurant in Oyne called Lil’Cs BBQ. Whilst Insch offers several take-aways eg Fast Frys for Fish & Chips and Café Mint Indian or Rainbow Chinese takeaways.
  7. The nearest supermarket is the Co-op in Insch, AB52 6JB, which is a 10-minute drive away and open to 10pm every day. All the major shops and supermarkets and petrol stations are available in Inverurie, eg Morrisons, Tesco, M&S etc.

      Thanks David. Glad you enjoyed your visit. We do get 4G on EE, but the other networks have yet to catch up.
