Royal Deeside Motor Show is Back for 2021!

Following the announcement by the UK Government some weeks ago, supplemented by the additional clarity provided by the Scottish Government earlier this week and the current localised stability and suppression of the ongoing Coronavirus-19 pandemic, we are excited to announce that the Royal Deeside Motor Show will proceed in July 2021.

Whilst we cannot be complacent and ignore the current challenges presented by the ongoing pandemic, we are working closely with Visit Scotland and Aberdeenshire Council, both of whom are hugely supportive of this event. People are already desperate to get out and about, so we are keen to promote something positive and fun for the area and for the industry, whilst managing every opportunity to responsibly stage a safe, socially-distanced open air event.

Therefore, we are delighted to announce that we are moving the Royal Deeside Motor Show back to July 2021, to be held at Kincardine Castle and Estate, now over two days - 17th and 18th July 2021!

We are also delighted to announce that we welcome Lamborghini Edinburgh as our Main Sponsor. Please pop along to their website and have a peek at some of the stunning motors that you may see at the Event in July 2021!

We are looking forward to welcoming over 5,000 visitors per day to the Royal Deeside Motor Show, a brand new event being staged at the majestic Kincardine Castle and throughout the scenic 3,000 acre estate. This is a two-day gathering of rare motors, including performance, classic, retro, contemporary, agri, leisure and heavy haulage, spanning motorcars, motorbikes, campers, 4x4s, tractors, HGVs and so much more.

Whilst the event is centred around motors, it is designed to be a family-inclusive event, with attractions including:-

  • Two MotoCases (Upper and Lower) showcasing over 1,000 motors from collectors, enthusiasts and motor dealers;
  • Our very own Royal Deeside Cartie Race where entrants design their cartie and race them down the Castle's West Drive for glory (in association with the Scottish Cartie Association);
  • An Offroad 4x4 safari experience especially created in the woods above the Castle (in association with the Buchan Offroad Drivers Club);
  • The Kincardine Showcase Parade will see the main Castle 'West Drive' converted into a showcase catwalk of motors from across the decades and spanning all motor sectors, including, cars, vans, campers, agricultural, leisure campers, motorbikes and even heavy haulage HLVs!
  • Retail zone for the motor enthusiast, displaying everything from spare parts for your motor, to car detailing and enhancements for your motorhome;
  • A shopper's heaven, supporting local businesses with their promotion of a huge range of arts, crafts and fantastic creations from local and national makers;
  • Dedicated zone for international street food and drink giving us the opportunity to celebrate and showcase local national and international street food. Not forgetting our world famous locally produced craft beer and spirit drinks companies;
  • And of course, we haven't forgotten about the wee ones, as we have dedicated zones to host family and children's rides for visitors to enjoy (in association with M&D's).

You can see the site layout on our website at this LINK. This is an interactive site map, so use the zoom function to click on the various zones. It's all really exciting!
