Ballater

The Victorian village of Ballater lies in the heart of Royal Deeside and is surrounded by the stunningly beautiful countryside of The Cairngorms National Park and is only 8 miles from Balmoral Castle.

The emphasis here is firmly on outdoor activities and sports; Ballater is set amongst some superb walking country with nearby Craigendarroch Hill and the River Dee. It also has an 18-hole golf course and bike hire is available to explore the surrounding area. A fun day out can be had at Deeside Nature Activities; take a Land Rover Safari or enjoy a wildlife excursion where you may spot red squirrels, Red and Roe Deer, Ospreys and Eagles.

If you''re visiting during the winter months, the Lecht and Glenshee ski centres are both nearby and offer instruction and equipment rental for beginners, whilst still offering a challenge for experienced skiers - the area is particularly beautiful during the winter months.

No trip to Ballater is complete without a visit to Balmoral Castle. Open to the public from April to July, the Castle Ballroom and gardens welcome visitors; it''s the perfect chance to see works of art and treasures not normally on display to the public. Enjoy an audio tour of the castle and finish your day with some cake and coffee in the cafe. There are other country estates well worth visiting in the area too, including Dinnet Estate and Glenmuick Estate.

In the village and surrounding area you''ll find AA Rosette restaurants and traditional cafes serving Scottish delicacies and international cuisine. For a family holiday or romantic break for two at any time of year, Ballater in Royal Deeside is hard to beat! Start your search for holiday cottages in Ballater today.
