Welcome to Braemar

Highland dancing and pipe band displays throughout the summer

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 which contain abundant wildlife. The village has a good range of accommodation options, independent and boutique shops plus some fine places to eat out. 

A monthly guide of where to eat and drink is available here

Looking for a log cabin, cosy B&B, camping site or friendly hostel? Then check all the accommodation options here

Just a few of the beautiful floral decorations, made by our talented local florist Kirsty Braidwood, for a recent wedding. Contact her at Braemar Gallery for more info :) ...

So Mrs Braemar Gallery doesn't like to blow her own trumpet - but I'd like people to at least know she has quite a large golden trumpet under that there bushel......here's some recent work from the Tundra (flower) Workshop.
