Unique to Braemar

Five things that make Braemar special

  • Monarchs of the Glen. Best place in the UK to see wild red deer
  • Royalty. See the Queen at Braemar Games or attending Crathie Kirk
  • Coldest Temperatures. UK’s lowest recorded temperature of -27C means the area is great for White Christmas’s and snowsports!
  • Thin Air. Braemar is the highest parish in Britain and we nestle below the highest mountainous area in Scotland. The Cairngorms contain 4 of the 5 highest peaks in the UK
  • Jacobite Connection – Raising of the Standard to begin the 1715 uprising. Visit the Jacobite Day at Braemar Castle
