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 autumn is a fantastic time of year to visit Braemar. You will probably hear the haunting roar of the red deer echoing through the glens as the annual rut progresses, witness the beautiful autumn colours as the birch, rowan and larch trees turn to golden hues, or visit many of the local beauty spots free from the summer crowds. There are also still plenty of visitor attractions open through the autumn months.
