Great balls of fire.
You can take a trip to Cinderella’s castle.
A variety of European castles were used as inspiration for Disney’s iconic Cinderella castle, and stunning, pink-hued Craigievar Castle was one of them.
And the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Spooky Slains Castle is just a 44-minute drive from Aberdeen. Bram Stoker stayed nearby in 1895 and it’s thought the eerie ruins inspired his most famous novel.
You can also grab a drink in a Dracula themed ex-church.
Slains Castle is also the name of a fun Aberdeen bar housed in an impressively Gothic church. You won’t be surprised to hear they go all out at Halloween.
