Other accommodation near Ellon

The beautiful and expansive town of Ellon is among the most desirable locations in all of Aberdeenshire. Much of this desirability is due to the fact that Ellon sits astride the lovely River Ythan. Though its name may not evoke images of extreme beauty, the River Ythan is indeed a wonder to behold at just the right time of day or dusk. This river has been home to settlements as far back as the days of the Roman Empire and beyond and it has breathed life and splendor into countless generations over time. It is on this historic and wondrous body of water that we find Ellon, and Ellon is all the better for it.

As mentioned above, many old civilizations have lived and died alongside the Ythan and Ellon is just such a historical location. The town sits comfortably in a spot that is perfect for fording the river and thus it grew up quite early and quickly during its infancy as nearly every town near a fording spot in England has done. Thus, Ellon is home to plenty of interesting historical relics. Chief among these is the breathtaking Ellon Castle. Sadly, this castle is in ruins today but the remains are still a sight to behold. Right by the castle is the famed Auld Brig. The Auld Brig is an ancient bridge that was built across the Ythan and these days it is a Category A listed bridge, and rightfully so. The roots of Ellon stretch back much further, however, and evidence unearthed in the area suggests that Ellon was inhabited since prehistory. Fortunately, tourists can find traces of this era as well by visiting the Catto Long Barrow. Barrows were ancient stone setups that were used as some form of primitive worship for a god that has long since been lost to the pages of history. These barrows can be found all over the United Kingdom and each one is special in its own right. The Catto Long Barrow is one of the most expansive and stunning barrows in Scotland, however, and if one were allowed to see only one barrow in his or her lifetime it would be easy to recommend the Catto.

At any rate, the fact remains that Ellon is a town filled to the brim with "life" in all its many forms. As such, another popular attraction in the town is the Riverside Park. This is essentially a long walking path alongside the Ythan that allows observers to see all kinds of wildlife including otters, trout, and herons. If it seems that Ellon is an inviting place for beings of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds, that's because it is. Rare is the life form that visits Ellon and isn't immediately floored by the beauty and wonder of the area. Aberdeenshire may be home to some truly stunning towns but it would be very difficult to think of a town that is friendlier, prettier, or more comfortable than this little slice of paradise nestled aside the glorious River Ythan.
