Strathdon Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Aberdeenshire...

This tiny village lies in the narrow upper valley of the Don, Scotland’s sixth largest river. Dominated by its church spire, it is a place for walkers, anglers, sightseers and photographers.

Nearby is the Lost Gallery, which displays modern art in a gloriously serene setting, and Candacraig Castle – Highland home of comedian Billy Connolly – and Corgarff Castle, a tower house. The latter was built in about 1530 by the Elphinstones. It was burned in 1571 by Adam Gordon of Auchindoun, killing nearly 30 people.
