Deeside Activity Park

Based on Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire, we offer a wide and extensive range of exciting outdoor activities. Only 45 minutes from the centre of Aberdeen, we offer activities ranging from quad bike trekking around our mud-splattered course, to go-karting on our asphalt racing circuit. Or how about hitting the bullseye on our fully automatic archery range and breaking clays at our clay shooting facility.

In addition, we also offer 4x4 off-road driving, Clay Shooting and rifle target shooting amongst others. We are also very proud to offer a Tutored Whisky Tasting Class, why not indulge yourself and learn about the real Scottish Dram.

Our facilities include an award winning coffee shop, a farm shop, corporate conference suite, huge indoor activities arena and 3 luxury holiday cottages.

We're open 7 days a week from 9am to 5pm, all year round, so come see us soon.

The coffee shop isn’t our main business, it is there to supplement our activities and give our guests the opportunity for refreshments and for locals and tourists to enjoy delicious home cooked food.

The unique thing about our coffee shop business is that the beef provided in the shop is Aberdeen Angus, which is bred on Cairnton Farm, owned by the same owners as the park and coffee shop. We also provide a personal service to a lot of our regular guests making them feel at home.

Our coffee shop and reception area has been open for 13 years in 2016 and there has been considerable growth since it opened, we are feeling the down turn from the oil sector as is most business in the area. 

At Deeside Activity Park we do a lot to ensure we are sustainable and in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, 2016 &2017 we received a Gold Tourism Award.

We pride ourselves in employing local staff from in and around Deeside and use local suppliers for as much as we can. Kings foods in Aberdeen supply us with our bulk items, Cairngorm Brewery supply our  beer, Deans of Huntly our shortbread, Ola Oils from Inverurie for a selection of tasty cooking oils, Ingrams from Ellon our bacon and sausages and of course our beef from our own Cairnton Aberdeen Angus farm. Also so that there is consistency we sell everything that we use in the farm shop so that our customers can have the same quality at home.

Here at Deeside Activity Park we are a family run business on the edge of The Cairngorm National Park, which brings in the Cairnton Farm, Cairnton Farm Cottages and also Deeside Activity Park, Coffee Shop and Farm Shop. As a close working team, we provide a family orientated atmosphere, giving a warm welcome to all our guests. Each staff member is treated as an individual and with respect, from our pot wash to management.

Testimonial

The Bothy at Cairnton Farm is the perfect family retreat. With panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, the property has recently been refurbed and finished to a very high standard throughout, providing everything you could possibly need for your holiday in terms of amenities and comfort. The owners were extremely welcoming and helpful during our stay, to the point of even supplying a ride-on tractor for our two young boys and nothing was too much trouble. There are plenty of opportunities to walk from your doorstep and the enclosed veranda is ideal for anyone with small children and/or dogs. The activity park just 1 mile from the Bothy, is also a great ‘all weather’ entertainment option for kids of any age. All in all, a very relaxing holiday in a beautiful area of Deeside and only a half hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Aberdeen City. We highly recommend this property and would most definitely return.

Ken and Margaret Howie of Cairnton have farming livestock in their blood! Their prize-winning Aberdeen Angus pedigree herd have gained them a wide reputation for naturally reared and grass fed cattle. Quality matured and marbled Aberdeen Angus beef from Cairnton is available to buy at our farm shop. 

 

Enjoy a flavor that you thought had gone forever.
