AreaNestled in the Eastern foothills of the Cairngorms on the banks of the Dee some 43 miles West of Aberdeen, Ballater is an attractive village with many fine Victorian houses and an excellent selection of quality shops and restaurants. Many of the local shops bear the Royal Warrant of the Queen or the Prince of Wales, testifying to Ballater’s long-standing royal associations.
The railway arrived in Ballater in 1866, making the town the railhead for nearby Balmoral Castle and of course for Birkhall. The line lasted exactly 100 years before Beeching’s axe fell. The attractive wooden station building has now been sympathetically restored and houses the Tourist Information centre plus a restaurant and shops.
There is plenty to see and do in and around the village. You can head for Balmoral Castle, or cross the Royal Bridge that spans the Dee outside your holiday apartment and make your way up Glen Muick to the foot of majestic Lochnagar. Many events are held during the course of the year, including the Walking Festival in May and the Ballater Highland Games in August. The latter is the centrepiece of Victoria Week.
Round and about Ballater you can visit Balmoral Castle (open daily from 1st August to 31st July), or perhaps drive up Glen Muick to the foot of magnificent Lochnagar.
On the edge of the village you will find the Craigendarroch Hilton with its luxury leisure complex open to day visitors including use of their swimming pool, while for the outdoor type Ballater is an ideal centre all year round.
