Braemar is situated in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park and close to Balmoral castle in Royal Deeside. Our lovely village is surrounded by stunning mountain scenery, beautiful glens containing ancient pine forests and teeming with wildlife. The village has a good range of accommodation options, independent and boutique shops plus some fine places to eat out.
The village is famous for having the lowest recorded temperature in the UK and is also one of the snowiest places too. Braemar therefore makes an ideal base for all your winter snowsports. Glenshee Ski Centre is just a 10 minute drive, there are numerous winter walking possibilities and great options for ski touring.
