Haddo House

Haddo House,Ellon Information
Designed by Douglas Adam for the 2nd Earl of Aberdeen in 1732, but refurbished in the 1880s, Haddo House elegantly blends crisp Georgian architecture with sumptuous late Victorian interiors by Wright and Mansfield. Noted for its fine furniture, paintings and objets d'art, Haddo also boasts a delightful terrace garden with geometric rosebeds and fountain, commemorative trees, a lavish herbaceous border and secluded glades and knolls. A magnificent avenue of lime trees leads to Haddo Country Park with its lakes, monuments, walks and wildlife. Throughout the house and grounds, personal portraits, monuments, plaques and memorabilia build up a fascinating account of the Gordon family who have lived at Haddo continuously for over 400 years. Dog exercise area in Country Park.
