We're easy to find and everything's close at hand
Ellon town centre is compact. It's on a slight incline, which gets steeper as you approach the riverside footpaths. You can get around easily on foot.
Once in the centre, the only road you need to cross to reach most of the shops and cafes is Bridge St., which features a pedestrian light controlled crossing.
Those who are less mobile should be aware of the slope from the river up into the town centre. There is a car park and level access to the public toilets down at the riverside.
Paid parking is very cheap at 2 hours for £1, but there are also free car parks and on-street parking is free. Just make sure you follow the rules - illegal parking will cost you the same as it does everywhere else.
Stagecoach buses serve both the town centre and the Park & Ride, connecting Ellon and its settlements with local towns, Aberdeen and the North East coast.
There are several taxi and minibus companies in the area which, between them, cover most times of day. You might get lucky and find a taxi in one of the bays on Bridge St. or in front of The New Inn on Market St.
Terion Taxis (01358 720556) have premises on Market St by the New Inn, Central Taxis and Millbank Coaches (01358 800800) have a new home on Bridge St. and Ellon Taxis (01358 725888) can be found at the Business Centre on Hospital Rd. There are also several long-established, reputable companies operating from home. Type "Ellon Taxis" in your search bar for a full list.
