[Haddo House]

The spectacular stately home of Haddo House was built in 1732, wings gracefully curving as if to embrace the manicured lawns in front. Home to the Gordon family over the centuries as well as a temporary maternity hospital during World War II, a tour of the sumptuous interior is unmissable, including a large chapel and the bedroom where Queen Victoria once stayed. If you're keen on visiting Scottish castles, you'll appreciate the Giles Room, which contains no fewer than 83 paintings of them, by the artist of the same name. The long access drive through beautiful parkland will make you want to explore the extensive grounds as well.
