You're never short of things to do on a short break in Aberdeen City & Shire. It's an area steeped in history where castles dot the landscape and perch on cliffs. And you can build your own castle on mile upon mile of sandy beaches.

Walk through spectacular scenery, or golf in it. And at the beating heart of it all is Aberdeen where you're never more than a stone's throw from galleries, theatres, cool bars, restaurants, clubs and shops. Right in the city centre are our two Skene House Hotels, Holburn and Rosemount.

Our 1 bedroom Hotels, at Holburn and Rosemount, offer comfortable twins and doubles, plus there's plenty of room for cots or cribs.

Our 2 and 3 bedroom Serviced Apartments, at Holburn and Rosemount, offer ideal accommodation for short breaks of 3 nights, or longer, for up to 6 people and are flexible enough to fit everyone in.

Golf breaks

In Aberdeen City & Shire you can play a links course one day, a heathland course the next, with a parkland course for the third day. And forty of them are within forty minutes drive of Skene House Hotels & Serviced Apartments.
