Come away in...


Welcome to The Steading, Upper Donside’s hidden gem. Set in the heart of Strathdon amidst some of Scotland’s most majestic Highland scenery, bringing to these glens a special place to eat & drink.

Our newly renovated pub opened the doors this summer - a warm and vibrant place for locals and visitors to come share the craic and relax and unwind in a secluded, Highland setting. From towering Scots Pines above the tumbling river Don to heather-clad hills and rugged glens. Our quiet corner of the Cairngorms is one of Aberdeenshire’s best-kept secrets, so there will always be a space for you at the bar, whether you’re visiting from afar or live down the road.

The Steading is within easy reach of Aberdeen and Inverness, at a little over an hour’s drive from each.
