ONE OF Aberdeenshire’s most historic hotels has benefited from a sharp upturn in meetings, events and other corporate business during the past six months – with guests and visitors arriving from the surrounding area, UK and a growing pipeline of international locations.
Nestled at the foot of Bennachie, Pittodrie House Hotel is a luxury venue set within its own ancient grounds and offering natural scenery, including woodland, extensive lawns and Victorian walled garden.

The hotel’s picturesque setting within 300 acres of estate land makes it a popular choice for corporate events, conferences and team-building exercises, which are all available for private hire.
Pittodrie House recently secured a raft of bookings and enquiries for corporate meetings and events in the new year from firms in the energy, food & drink and travel sectors, among others.
The hotel can cater for up to 100 delegates and personalises the design of every event that it hosts, including tailoring menus to suit individuals’ specific dietary requirements. Alongside traditional conference and meeting facilities, Pittodrie House offers an array of outdoor activities on its doorstep.
Hotel manager Andrew Leggat commented: “We have always had a strong reputation for delivering first-class conferences and corporate events in a truly remarkable setting. Our tranquil location surrounded by the breathtaking Scottish landscape provides the perfect setting for business events and away days.
“We are currently receiving enquiries for the first quarter of 2024, which is a clear sign of the confidence clients have in our team’s ability to deliver excellent service and attention to detail. “With the end of the financial year approaching for most businesses, now is the perfect time to get your team together for an away day meeting or conference.
“Increasingly, clients are looking for something new or different to fully engage their staff and keep morale high. Our team aims to incorporate variety and creative touches into every event that we plan by fully utilising the venue and outdoor space that we have available.”
Pittodrie House proudly showcases Aberdeenshire’s larder and the hotel is committed to offering locally-sourced produce and fresh ingredients.
The hotel’s award-winning Mither Tap features traditional Scottish décor and showcases the finest Scottish food and drink. The restaurant is committed to offering locally-sourced produce, fresh ingredients and wild fish – including renowned suppliers John Ross Jr., Macsween and Scotbeef.
The hotel’s dedicated staff works in partnership with clients to understand exactly what they are looking to achieve from their event and ensure that delegates will have a positive and memorable experience from start to finish.
