Welcome to Braemar

Check the website for the programme and booking form

Braemar is situated in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park and close to Balmoral castle in Royal Deeside. Braemar has its own community run castle, a Highland Games exhibition centre and the acclaimed and refurbished Fife Arms Hotel.

Our lovely village is surrounded by stunning mountain scenery, beautiful glens containing ancient pine forests which contain abundant wildlife. Why not join a wildlife tour or ride the chairlift at nearby Glenshee for a panoramic view.

There is a thriving arts and music scene with concerts, ceilidhs and other events regularly performed in multiple venues including St Margarets, Braemar Gallery and the village hall. Check Facebook and the listings for updates.

The village has a good range of accommodation options, independent and boutique shops plus some fine places to eat out. The latest monthly guide is here
