The Finzean Estate extends over several thousand acres, encompassing farmland, moorland and forestry and has been in the ownership of the Farquharson family for sixteen generations, including the renowned Victorian landscape painter, Joseph Farquharson. In this unique and stunning setting there are interesting walks, both gentle and challenging. Royal Deeside is a popular tourist destination with spectacular scenery and the added attraction of Balmoral Castle. Highland Games take place in different villages during the summer months, culminating in the Braemar Gathering in September.

The National Trust owns many castles in the area which are always a firm favourite with visitors. The River Dee is very popular with salmon fishermen and Finzean and other local estates offer stalking and shooting, in season. There are three 18 hole golf courses and one 9 hole course, designed by Tom Morris in 1908, within a twelve mile radius which are guaranteed to keep the golfers happy. For those interested in the arts, the Aboyne and Deeside Festival presents a programme of arts-based events each July.

The surrounding countryside has much of historical interest including the Balnagowan 'necropolis', a collection of nearly 1000 cairns. A few miles west of Finzean, lie the villages of Lumphanan and Kincardine o' Neil which have links to the battle in which King Malcolm Canmore defeated Macbeth in 1057. And for those who are interested in another aspect of life in Scotland, the Royal Lochnagar Distillery and a real ales brewery are only a short drive away!
