Tour Balmoral

Balmoral Castle is a 24,000-acre estate on the River Dee, personal property of the Oueen; it was leased from
1848 and bought for his family in 1852 by Prince Albert.
The Scottish baronial castle, replacing a 16th-century home of the Gordons, was designed by Prince Albert and architect William Smith (1853—1855). Oueen Victoria was passionately attached to the estate, and her faithful servant John Brown is commemorated in nearby Crathie old kirkyard.

Loch Kinord Hotel. Located just a short distance from Ballater in the village of Dinnet, the hotel has 10 bright and comfortable en-suite bedrooms with television and hospitality tray. Renowned locally for its food, the hotel offers a variety of meals from snacks and bar meals to full a la carte.

Escape to the Hilton Craigendarroch House set in the heart of Royal Deeside. This is the ideal place to while away the hours in comfort, elegance and luxury. Take a walk along the banks of the River Dee, savouring the tranquil beauty of the countryside.
