Welcome to Braemar

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.
