The Aberdeenshire region
Surrounded on two sides by 100 miles of unspoilt coastline and on the third by the 4,000-foot tops cairngorms, Aberdeenshire offers sand dunes and vertiginous cliffs, mountain and heather moor, granite towns, sturdy slate-roofed villages and local folk sure of their own special culture - and all ready with a genuine welcome.
This is in many ways the heartland of what people expect Scotland to be - malt whisky, salmon and trout-stocked rivers, golf links, moors home to stag, grouse and eagle, a castle at every corner, Highland Games and unpretentious people with very individual speech and identity.
Aberdeenshire is the perfect place whatever the season and whatever your interests.
Royal Deeside is in the heart of Scotland and lies in the magnificent valley of the River Dee. Rising high in the Cairngorm Mountains and running east to its mouth at Aberdeen the river flows through some of Scotland's finest scenery. Midway, in the shadow of Lochnagar mountain, lies royal Balmoral Castle, summer home of the Royal Family.
Much is contained within this delightful glen. The west lies within the new Cairngorms National Park while the east comprises pleasant rolling farmland. For the active there is a wide range of sporting pursuits and some great walks. For animal lovers there is some fine wildlife and birds to be seen. For the tourist there are many attractions all surrounded by beautiful scenery. Shops, restaurants and accommodation are amongst the best in Scotland.
Ballater is a delightful 'Victorian' village in the centre of Royal Deeside the eastern Cairngorms National Park. Originally founded at the start of the 19th century to accommodate visitors to the nearby Pannanich Wells spa, it subsequently became the site for the railway station that serviced nearby Balmoral Castle and Upper Deeside.
For about 100 years this station was used by the Royal Family and their guests and by thousands of holiday makers from Aberdeen and elsewhere coming to enjoy the delightful surroundings. The station is now a popular visitor centre. The village grew steadily during the Victorian era and contains many fine stone-built buildings within its conservation area.
The variety of shops in Ballater is surprising given its small size. The Royal Family use Ballater for much of the supplies for Balmoral Castle and for nearby Birkhall so that many shops in the village display Royal Warrant signs. Many of the fine houses have been turned into hotels and guest-houses and the village also supports an unusually high concentration of good restaurants. With the watchword being quality, visitors to Ballater are ensured a very enjoyable stay.
Approaching Ballater from the east, one can enjoy the views of the River Dee flowing through the town while behind the village stands the majestic Lochnagar, one of Scotland's great mountains. The river and hills ensure that Ballater is a great base for both those who enjoy walking and fishing breaks and those who enjoy touring. Ballater also has a fine 18-hole golf course and facilities for other sports. Additionally in May it supports a popular Walking Week and in August it hosts Victoria Week.
