The Steading Bar

The Steading Bar


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 and drink.

This quaint newly renovated pub opened the doors in the summer of 2019 - 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.
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, or a mere 12 miles from the Lecht ski centre.
