Food and Drink
Raemoir comes fully catered with its own Master Chef and kitchen team, poised to create personalised menus with you in mind. We can create a five course fine dining menu with paired wines, a luxury picnic hamper perfect for a day out or everything you need for a simple firepit barbecue – just let us know what you fancy.
We have a growing reputation as a foodie region in Aberdeenshire with everything from beef and venison to seafood and cheese, gin and whisky to berries and honey. We can bring the experts to you or if you fancy a day out we’ve got some great ideas.

If your idea of fun is to channel your creative side then you’re in luck. Aberdeenshire is bursting at the seams with artists, makers, growers, artisans all of whom can hold classes and workshops either here at Raemoir or in their own studios.
Painting and Drawing
We are justly proud of the rich seam of local history that runs through these parts and if you love a fairytale castle or an ancient standing stone then a day out on Deeside will have your heart beating faster.

We all love family holidays and Raemoir is a great spot to gather your loved ones and make memories. We have acres of running about space outside, gather pine cones for the firepit under the Woodland Cathedral, spot a deer, red squirrel or badger walk through the forest behind the house. Plus we’d like to introduce you to our three lions, Aldo, Franz and Wunday (he’s the one wearing the ivy cloak - see if you can find him).
