Welcome to Ellon

Find us on the banks of the Ythan, a tranquil haunt of heron, trout and otter, meandering through the ancient region of Formartine to meet the sea in one of the few undeveloped river estuaries in Scotland. Trace our history in the standing stones and castles. Discover the riverside, the parks and the cycleways. Eat, drink and sleep here. Shop here. Experience the sports centres, community groups and an active arts scene. Or just lean on the Auld Brig and watch the town unfold.
