Balmoral Arms continues the tradition of attracting visitors to Royal Deeside, which has existed since Victorian times.
The newly launched five-star Balmoral Arms sits in the heart of the Victorian village of Ballater, Royal Deeside, Scotland. A place with nature, heritage and style come together, featuring luxurious rooms and suites, our five-star inn has had a royal upgrade with locally inspired cuisine.
Striking balance between our Victorian heritage and a contemporary countryside flare, new bedroom and Suite interiors feature statement headboards, free-standing bath tubs, frilled light shades with colours and floral patterns that nod to the vastness of flora and fauna in the Cairngorms.
The Ghillie's Bar provides a laidback environment to gather, rub shoulders with locals and visitors alike, share animated stories of the days adventure, and listen to live music. Indulge a roaring appetite with hearty bites and choose from a selection of local bottled ales combined with guest ales on draft which change regularly, with favourites from Inveralmond in Perth and the closer-to-home Royal Deeside Brewery.
The lounge offers a cosy place to relax after a day of adventure or enjoy and Victorian afternoon tea beside the wood burning fire.
Named after the year that Balmoral Castle was purchased by Prince Albert for Queen Victoria, our 1852 classic Scottish Brasserie & Grill delights the palate with a true taste of Royal Deeside with local, seasonal cuisine.
Sample fresh, local flavours at 1852, brought to you by Head Chef Gary Quinn. Salmon from the River Dee, cured with local Pinewood Conservation Gin and Slow Cooked Game Hot Pot, sit alongside Balmoral Chicken, Saddle of Venison and Beef Wellington.
Guests can take time to explore Royal Deeside including Balmoral Castle, Crathie Kirk or enjoy outdoor activities including golf, walking, fishing and cycling. Balmoral Arms sits in the centre of the picturesque Royal Deeside village of Ballater, at the heart of the Grampian Highlands.
