Ellon lies 17 miles north of Aberdeen and three miles inland from Scotland’s north east coast. Historically associated with the infamous breed of Aberdeen Angus cattle, which are favoured throughout the world, this part of Aberdeenshire is ell suited for mixed farming enterprises. Along the coast from Aberdeen (17 miles) to Peterhead (15 miles) and Fraserburgh (24 miles) the traditional fishing industry continues to thrive with much of the produce being transported to southern Europe.
The hinterland around Aberdeen has benefitted much from the oil industry over the last 20 years with a heavy investment in new housing and transport links. As a result, Ellon boasts three primary schools and a new Academy in addition to state of the art recreational facilities on the edge of town. The town itself is bypassed by the A90 which offers convenient access south to Aberdeen and north to Peterhead and Fraserburgh.
Aberdeen Airport at Dyce (19 miles) offers daily domestic services to some of the major cities in the UK and Europe. There are direct train services from Aberdeen to London, including a sleeper service. Aberdeen is a vibrant city with its corporate headquarters, universities and colleges and provides all the services expected of a major city. Private schools include Robert Gordon’s College, the Hamilton School, St Margaret’s and Albyn as well as the newly built International School of Aberdeen. Gordonstoun (private co-educational) is also with easy reach (68 miles).
The county of Aberdeenshire offers extensive opportunities for field sports with driven pheasant and partridges on many of the lowground estates and grouse shooting and stalking on the upland estates to the west of the county. The rivers Dee, Don, Deveron and Ythan offer the opportunity to fish for salmon and sea trout.
There are numerous golf courses including Trump International at Balmedie and the world renowned Royal Aberdeen. More locally, there are challenging 18 hole courses at Newburgh and Cruden Bay, and a six hole course at Ellon.
The area is well served by agricultural suppliers with a weekly livestock market at Thainstone Agricultural Centre near Inverurie (21 miles).
