About the neighbourhood
Royal Deeside is an exceptionally beautiful part of the Scottish Highlands with plenty to see and do. Less than 1 mile away are Balmoral Castle, Crathie Church, & The Royal Lochnagar Distillery. Albert's Cairn can also be visited by foot. A short drive of 8 miles towards the east brings you to the picturesque village of Ballater with its many shops and coffee shops. And 9 miles to the west is Braemar, the location of Highland Games attended by the Queen annually. There are many wonderful walks and trails in the area - recommended walks include those around the spectacular Loch Muick, Linn of Dee and Linn of Quoich. A walk through the ancient Ballochbuie forest through to the Garrawalt falls is a must - parking is available at Keiloch.
Getting around
A hire car is recommended to get from place to place. There is a bus which runs between Braemar and Aberdeen, but it is not particularly frequent.
