2015 will be an exciting year for Braemar as a number of exciting anniversaries take place including the 50th year of Braemar Mountain Rescue Team, 200th year anniversary of Braemar Royal Highland Society and 300th anniversary of the 1715 Jacobite Rebellion. We will keep you posted of the special events taking place!
Braemar Castle opens for the season on Saturday 4th April (as does Braemar Golf Course). Discover more about the Jacobite uprising in their new exhibition. Try one of the new audio tours or take a guided tour with a local volunteer.
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.
