If you want to make the most of your visit I recommend you park in Huntly Square and walk down towards the castle. You will walk past the war memorial, along an impressive avenue of Lime trees. Passing through the archway of the Simpson Building (part of the Huntly Secondary school) you should continue down the leafy Avenue until you arrive at Huntly Castle itself. (Anyone with young children may want to stop off at the Cooper Play park on the left)
Huntly castle is set in pleasant surroundings. Although it is a ruin, it has an impressive carved doorway and also a carved fireplace upstairs. (If you don't want to pay the entrance fee you can just admire its impressive facade from the Avenue, and continue on your walk.)
After your visit you can carry walking along the Avenue, bearing left to visit the river Deveron. There you will find another play park, a pebbly beach and a Nordic Ski centre (toilets and drink available, when it is open). After that you can either return the way you came or walk along the river bank . This is a pleasant walk at any time of year. After approx 30mins you will come to a bridge; go up the steps, take a left, then left again back into Huntly square (round trip perhaps 1 to 2 hours).
