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, the 200th year anniversary of Braemar Royal Highland Society and 300th anniversary of the 1715 Jacobite Rebellion.
The Braemar Gathering will be celebrating its bi centenary with the March of the Lonach and Atholl Highlanders. International athletes will be among those taking part in the “heavy” and “track” events. Pipers and dancers will be of the usual high standard while teams from H.M. Forces will compete in the InterServices Unit Tug of War Championship and in the Services Medley Relay Race. The hill race will again be run up Morrone and Scottish Pipe Bands will be to the fore with the customary Massed Pipe Bands appearing. A day not to be missed!
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.
