Bridge of Alford is a small country village nestling in the Vale of Alford on the banks of the River Don and is surrounded by the Hills of Bennarchie and Coreen. Despite this tranquility, the City of Aberdeen is only a 40 minute drive away. The Forbes Arms Hotel enjoys a highly visible location in the village and is ideally situated to benefit from sportsmen and visitors to the area together with local patronage. The area is reputed to be where the world famous Aberdeen Angus breed of cattle originates and has many attractions to offer the visitor including a Heritage Centre, Transport Museum, Steam Railway, a Country Park incorporating a historic battlefield and a golf course, all within easy reach of the hotel.

On the banks of the River Don, the Forbes Arms Hotel is a well known landmark to sportsmen, visitors and tourists in this charming part of rural Aberdeenshire. Situated just beyond the bridge over the river, the Forbes Arms Hotel offers modern hotel facilities including comfortable en suite letting bedrooms, popular bars and a charming restaurant with a conservatory style extension overlooking the River. The hotel gardens run down to the river and are popular for alfresco dining.
