Ballater

Ballater

This quaint Victorian village lies on the shores of the sparkling River Dee in the heart of Royal Deeside. The village enjoys a prime location on the fringe of the magnificent Cairngorms National Park, with a number of other local attractions and sights on the doorstep including Balmoral Castle, Loch Muick and Craigendarroch hill among others. The charming town centre is a great place to grab a pub lunch and browse the many locally owned shops – many of which display Royal warrants from the Queen and Prince Charles. This is an ideal location for outdoor enthusiasts with ample opportunities to get outside wildlife watching, hiking, cycling, fishing or in winter – going to the Cairngorms for skiing or snowboarding.

We love Ballater because...

  • Quaint Victorian village
  • Ideal for outdoor enthusiasts
