Insch

Insch is a village in Aberdeenshire with a mighty backdrop of the famous Mither Tap and peak of Bennachie.

For panoramic views of the Aberdeenshire countryside around, climb Dunideer Hill in Insch. At the summit you’ll find the ruin of Dunideer Castle, an ancient Tower House – believed to be one of the earliest Tower Houses to survive in Scotland. And to discover even more local history, pay a visit to St Drostan’s Church on the High Street. All that still stands of this site is the west gable topped by an ornate 17th Century pedimented bellcote.

Visitors can even tee off from Insch Golf Club. The parkland course with rolling countryside views measures 5,371 yards with a par of 69. And for cyclists, try the 19-mile Insch to Oyne cycle route which starts in the centre of Insch. The route will take you past the historical, Picardy Stone Symbol.

28 miles from Aberdeen, the village is well connected to Aberdeen and surrounding Aberdeenshire towns and villages with its own railway station.
