Victory Hall

Aboyne & Glen Tanar Memorial Hall, known as the Victory Hall, is set in the heart of the village of Aboyne in Royal Deeside.   It is a substantial granite building of character, both inside & out, built about one hundred years ago and now C Listed.


Aboyne developed in Victorian times, much of it being a Conservation Area, with many trees and the large open area, the Green, at the centre.   For the active, Aboyne has an outstanding 18 hole golf course established in the late 19th century, gliding at the west end and water skiing at the east.   The area lends itself to hill walking while walks alongside the rivers Dee & Tanar, which hold both salmon & trout, are more suitable for the less energetic.


The Hall, which has recently been completely refurbished to provide modern facilities, has three areas which can be hired.


Main Hall:   Suitable for weddings, ceilidhs, dances, Burns Suppers, concerts, drama productions, conferences, whist drives, bridge, badminton, exercise & dance classes, coffee mornings and jumble sales.   The kitchen is equipped to commercial standards.


Formaston Room:   This is named after the ancient Formaston Stone displayed there, is suitable for small meetings.   It also has a fully equipped bar area.
The Main Hall and Formaston Room are connected by sliding doors which, when opened, give a combined space of maximum occupancy 250.
The ground floor has disabled access.


Conference Room:   This upstairs room, also suitable for meetings, can accommodate a maximum of 45 people but less if tables are in use.   There is a small kitchen adjacent.


The maximum occupancy of the entire building is 300.
