Pocket Guide: Ballater

Nestled amongst the towering peaks, wooded parks, and dramatic coastline of Aberdeenshire, visitors will discover a wealth of quaint northern villages, each of which holds its own unique historical sites and contemporary treats, from traditional Scottish hotels, pubs, and restaurants, to famous estates such as Balmoral Castle. Whether you’re travelling to simply enjoy the stunning and picturesque views of the Scottish countryside, are looking to indulge in the local food and whisky or are trying to discover the country’s rich heritage, you’ll quickly find there’s plenty for all to see and do in Aberdeenshire.

Visit the Town of Ballater

Located inside Cairngorms National Park, the largest of the UK’s national parks, the Victorian village of Ballater sits on the banks of the River Dee, and is strongly linked to the nearby Royal residence of Balmoral Castle—visitors will note the many “By Royal Appointment” signs in the local shop windows. Be sure to stop into the Royal Railway Station, which has been transformed into a visitor centre, as well as the Royal Lochnagar Distillery. For those looking to experience the local landscape then make your way to Loch Muick, where in the shadows of the mountain of Lochnagar you can see golden eagles, red deer, grouse and more.
