Take on the Illuminator and then make it a weekend to remember!

Stay in Royal Deeside, and enjoy some of Scotland's finest scenery, hospitality, food and drink.

Glen Tanar Estate

Stay in the very estate the Illuminator passes through! The estate has nine charming cottages and log cabins to choose from. Glen Tanar has a National Nature Reserve that is home to golden eagles, ospreys and capercaillie. It is the perfect place to relax after the event and a great base for exploring Royal Deeside.


The Boat Inn

Just a stone's throw from the event base, and the Illuminator route runs almost past the front door.  Beautifully appointed rooms overlook the River Dee, and the Boat Inn has a well-stocked bar with real ales and whisky. The restaurant in the front boasts a lovely wood burning stove and is renown for serving great local food.


Struan Hall

Less than one minute to walk to the event base. This is a truly Scottish  B&B experience in one of Aboyne's finest buildings. With five spacious rooms it has room for your team and the lovely owners serve a superb breakfast to recharge you after the event!
