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 "Where to Eat" guide is here
