Maryculter House situated in the Aberdeenshire countryside and on the banks of the River Dee has been asking dinners to add a discretionary £1 per person to their bill since they reopened on the 1 August, all of which will be donated to a local charitable trust, River Dee Trust.

The money raised will go directly to supporting the Trust’s aims of planting 1 million trees over the next 15 years in a bid to encourage healthy salmon stocks and flourishing wildlife.

Managing Director of the hotel, Peter Walker said: “Maryculter House sits on the banks of the River Dee, and it’s such a big part of the hotel’s history and future”.

“I have always felt strongly about supporting local businesses and charities and more than ever during these challenging times, this has never been more needed.  Contributing to this well-deserved and important environmental cause continues to be high on the hotel’s agenda. An extra £1 per person supplement to every bill would make a significant and positive impact to our beautiful surroundings, so it’s one we are more than happy to support.”

The trees will help prevent a repetition of the high river temperatures which damaged young salmon stocks on the Upper Dee two years ago. They will provide nutrition and shelter for all river species and they will encourage a wide range of wildlife to thrive.

Dr Lorraine Hawkins, River Director, Dee District Salmon Fishery Board & River Dee Trust said: “It is great that this iconic business is looking after its local environment by supporting our community-based Trust and the river’s future. This support comes at an especially crucial time, as like many charities, we have been impacted by covid-19. We look forward to Maryculter House continuing to be an important part of the River Dee community.”

Historic Maryculter House, currently owns two fishing beats on the River Dee.
