A picturesque ‘Victorian’ village in the heart of Royal Deeside, Scotland, Ballater is surrounded by glorious countryside including the Dee River, Craigendarroch hill, Loch Muick, and Lochnagar. Located in the Cairngorms National Park, Ballater is 43 miles (69 km) west of Aberdeen and 8 miles (13 km) from Balmoral Castle.

Ballater is famous for its royal connections and many shops and businesses display the Royal warrants of the Queen and Prince Charles.
