Your home from home in Royal Deeside
You’ll find Deeside Inn in the heart of Ballater, a beautiful village centred on a large green surrounded by rolling hills, high mountains, stunning Lochs and the River Dee that sweeps past Balmoral Castle.
Our Deeside Inn is a welcoming place to stay in Ballater, with space for relaxing time together and a handy base for actively enjoying all that the Cairngorms National Park has to offer.
We’ve kept many of the original Victorian features, like wood-panelling, wooden beams and open log fires, to create a friendly and relaxing atmosphere throughout the hotel.
The restaurant serves food throughout the day: Casual bar suppers follow hearty Scottish breakfasts. Fireside Victorian afternoon teas, table roast Sunday lunches and the best Scottish steak enrich our menu of classic flavours. Our popular bar offers a variety of beers, wines, and spirits, including a wide range of malt whiskies. You’ll often hear live music there too. And our welcoming lounge is the perfect place to sink into one of the large settees and relax.
Royal Deeside’s many attractions include Balmoral Castle, Crathie Kirk, Royal Lochnager Distillery and Ballater’s Old Railway Station. Cairngorm National Park is nearby, where you’ll find all kinds of hiking and climbing trails from easy to seriously challenging.
The quiet roads and forest paths are perfect for cycling and mountain biking. Or, for a relaxing family trip, take the Deeside Way cycle path. The River Dee is famous for its excellent salmon fishing, or catch Rainbow Trout in one of the many Lochs close to Ballater.
Whatever your reason for coming to the Grampians, Deeside Inn will make you feel at home.
