Inverness, the highland capital, is about one and a half hour's drive from Ballater. A boat trip down Loch Ness for some Nessie spotting and a visit to Urquhart Castle can be done here. Other places of interest are Culloden Battlefield and the Falls of Foyers.


Balmoral Castle is a ten minute drive. There is a variety of shops in the village (some with Royal Warrants). There are many restaurants and pubs. An abundance of leisure facilities include fishing, walking, horse riding, tennis, golf and in the winter skiing at Cainrgorm, Glenshee and the Lecht.

Ballater is set amidst stunning mountainous scenery. Distilleriesand many other castles are also within easy reach. The Ballater Golf Club welcomes non members.

The former railway station has been reopened as a visitor centre which shows the long association between the Royal Family and the Deeside village. The Braemar Gathering, which is the first weekend in September, is a very popular event.
