Company information

We have owned Lochnagar Guest House for over 25 years and have always worked in the hospitality trade. We strive to make sure all our guests have a pleasant and enjoyable stay whether it be business or pleasure.

Property information

Located centrally in Aberdeen we are in close proximity to all the shops, bar and restaurants all within a walking distance of 5 to 10 minutes. Local transport is also very accessable from our property with the train station 5 minutes away. We are a non smoking property but we do have a smoking arbour located in the front terrace which our guests are welcome to use. We are a glistening granite city building which is beautiful to see in the light sunny nights. Some of our property has been recently refurbished and is to a high quality standard with luxury decor. Here at Lochnagar Guest House we wish you a pleasant stay and any further requirements you may wish please don't hesitate to contact us. Please also visit us on Facebook for our exclusive deals.

Neighbourhood information

Situated off Union Street, we are close to the centre and busy pubs but we do enjoy the quietness we have at night. Although the train station can be seen from the property there's no noise that can be heard from any of our rooms. Parking is busy at peak times and can also be quite expensive which is why we offer our guests free secured parking at the rear of the property. Nearby is the local school where playing fields, tennis courts and putting can be found. We really couldn't be in a better area!
