Welcome to Braemar

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 award winning Fife Arms Hotel.
Our lovely village is surrounded by stunning mountain scenery, beautiful glens containing ancient pine forests which contain abundant wildlife.
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

Covid Update
As of the 3rd of July, the Scottish Government removed the 5-mile travel restriction for outdoor leisure, recreation, and exercise. This means that you can travel to Braemar, but please plan ahead, understand guidelines to stay safe, be prepared to be flexible and change your plans, especially if you find your destination crowded and busy, and please be kind when visiting our community.
Overnight stays are permitted in self-contained accommodation only – where you do not have to share facilities. Please book ahead.
Please refrain from wild camping in the Cairngorms National Park at this time.
You can stay in a campervan or caravan on a formal site (if they are open) we ask that you do not park overnight in existing car parks and follow advice from CAMPA.
Takeaway food is available from some establishments (see monthly guide)  and more options for both accommodation and eating out are planned from 15th July.
