Royal Deeside's regal attractions
In addition to being set amid some of Scotland's most beautiful countryside, Ballater is close to the Royals' Highland retreat, Balmoral Castle. You can visit Balmoral's grounds and gardens during the summer months, and you can pay a trip to Crathie Kirk, the parish church, at any time of year. The small granite structure is where the Queen and her family worship when they are staying at the castle. There are plenty of other castles to visit near Ballater if you enjoy Scottish history, including Banchory’s 16th-century Crathes Castle, which is famous for its gardens.
Scottish traditions at Highland Games
The Ballater Highland Games are famous the world over – mainly because they are usually attended by members of the Royal Family. The games, which take place every year on the second Thursday in August in Monaltrie Park, feature Scottish traditions such as tossing the caber, Highland dancing, and bagpiping. There are many other attractions when the games are on, such as stalls selling a range of food from all over Scotland and a funfair for children.
