Camping sites, touring caravan parks, campgrounds, trailer parks in Ellon.
Once the capital of the prehistoric Pictish province of Buchan, Ellon (or 'island’) sits at a vital crossing point on the River Ythan. In the Middle Ages the Celtic Mormaers and later the Norman Earls of Buchan dispensed justice at the Moot Hill. Ellon was one of the places burned in the harrying of Buchan in 1308, following Robert the Bruce's defeat of the Comyns near Oldmeldrum.
The ruins of Ellon Castle stand on what was previously an ancient fort. The 'Old Bridge’, built in 1793, is still open to pedestrians.
Haddo House is a mansion built by William Adam in 1732 for the 2nd Earl of Aberdeen. A local park has a footpath running beside the river for the length of the town. At one time locals found pearl mussels in the waters and - presented to King James VI – is part of the Scottish Crown.
