Certificate of Excellence
Saplinbrae Hotel and Lodges showcases the best in relaxed dining and living, where the quality of service and commitment to consistency is excellent, but still personal and fun. Our bedrooms have historic charm, complemented with local art, antique prints and small touches of tweed from our local mill. They are a fitting counterpart to the spectacular views from your window of acres of uninterrupted rolling farmland. Our self-catering lodges offer a home from home with the benefit of hotel dining right on your doorstep. Our dining room and lounge bar offer relaxed, all day dining and a wide selection of craft beers, Scottish gins and malt whiskies. Having a strong agricultural connection, we deem provenance to be of the highest importance. We are genuinely committed to sourcing locally, it truly is a case of from farm to fork at Saplinbrae. Located just outside the village of Mintlaw, 30 miles north of Aberdeen, we are only 15 minutes to both Peterhead and Fraserburgh.
