Huntly, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Gowanbank was built in 1900 for the Duke of Gordon's Factor. It is situated in Queen Street one of the premier locations in Huntly.

We booked this for the weekend of our daughters wedding , so the whole family could be together. The sitting room and drawing room were beautiful and perfect for pictures of the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready. The bedrooms were perfectly sized and comfortable.
