Braemar Cabins and Auld Bank House are located right in the heart of the village. Lying on the south east side of the Cairngorms National Park, Braemar is the gateway to Royal Deeside, with Balmoral Castle being just 8 miles away.
There is a huge range of walks on the door step, from Munros to low level forest walks and great mountain biking, including family friendly routes to wild and remote singletrack. It’s a mecca for touring and road cyclists, with one of Scotland’s toughest Etapes passing our front door. We’re only 9 miles north of Scotland’s largest ski resort, Glenshee, which offers great skiing and ski touring.
The highest 18 hole golf course in Scotland is only a stone’s throw away and there are more than 10 courses within 50 miles.
The area is also a magnet for country sports enthusiasts, with renowned brown trout fishing on the Rivers Clunie and Gairn. The Invercauld and Mar Lodge Estates both offer shooting, stalking and fishing.
Then there are castles, whisky distilleries, cafes, shops, galleries and just taking in the amazing scenery!
