The area is known as Royal Deeside and there are many royal connections to be found.

Visit the skillfully restored Old Train Station at Ballater or the Royal Deeside Railway at Milton of Crathes, both of which have served the British Monarchy. Jump onboard for fun heritage train rides at Royal Deeside Railway.
Finish your regal adventures with a well-deserved dram at Royal Lochnagar Distillery, which impressed Queen Victoria and Prince Albert so much that they bestowed a ‘By Royal Appointment’ warrant on it.
