Ballater Hotel & Guest Accommodation

Hotels, B&B's, Guesthouses in Ballater

This is an irresistible resort lying on the River Dee in the menacing shadow of 3786ft Lochnagar. Nearby is a path which takes you to the 700ft summit of Craigendarroch (Hill of Oaks) and panoramic views. A one-time spa, it received the ultimate accolade when Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert purchased an old tower house nearby and converted it into Balmoral Castle in 1852.

The town, in upper Deeside, was largely created by Francis Farquson who built the original spa here after an old woman apparently cured herself of a skin condition by jumping into a bog at the foot of Pannanich Hill.

Nearby is the Birkhall estate, on the River Muick, where a fine 18th century mansion bought from the Aberdalgie family was to become a residence for both the late Queen Mother and Prince Charles. A 19th century wire suspension bridge crosses the river. Close by is Crathie Church, a favourite haunt of the Royal Family.

Here we try to offer a wide selection from budget to luxury hotels, guest houses, bed and breakfast, B&B accommodation suitable for holidays, vacations or business travellers in Ballater or surrounding areas.
