We are now closed for winter. We reopen April 1st 2020.

  •   A must visit. Looks unspectacular from outside, but is a juwel inside. It is completely furnished. Seems that Lord Farquharson just left for hunting or so. Just lovely. Nice staff keeping the castle. The audio guide offers you so much additional information. You just need...More

      Four of us enjoyed an excellent visit to this interesting castle. We were shown round by an entertaining guide. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the tour as accessible as possible for the two of our party who weren't so mobile. A...More

      What a gem and what a fascinating history. The locals run this castle and they are friendly and knowledgeable. Kudos to them for keeping this quirky delightful place open. Everything about this castle is comfy and intriguing. My son and I loved it

  •   For all its prominent position at the top of a hill , this piece of history is rather overshadowed by its neighbouring north east castles. It is well worth a visit. The guided tour gave us a comprehensive run down on its past over the...More

      Not sure what I expected when we parked up, but stepping out of the trees it was lovely to behold the Castle. Picturesque against the mountains we wandered around from beautiful room to room. We were also given our own audio guide so we could...More

  •   If you have time to spare you could stop like we did but I wouldn't return. Compared to other castles it has little to offer and is less spectacular.

Fantastic time of year to visit Braemar - even although the Castle is now closed. Once we raise £1.5M for our "Raising the Standard" project we're aiming to be able to stay open longer. All contributions gratefully received! Delighted to have raised £6.5k at our Comedy night in Inverurie last week.

Fabulous Fashion weekend organised by the Fife Arms Hotel and Harper's Bazaar. Although a long way from the beating heart of fashion, the Castle has a powerful connection through one of the subjects of the first talk, designer Elsa Schiaparelli. She was a great friend of Frances Farquharson, the Laird's first wife. Frances was a former editor of Harper's Bazaar. Wonderful to hear such glitzy speakers as HB Editor-in Chief, Justine Picardie, Curator of Fashion and Modern Textiles at the V & A, Oriole Cullen, designers, Christopher Kane and Araminta Campbell and Dr Mhairi Maxwell, Assistant Curator of the V&A in Dundee right here in the Village Hall in Braemar!

We say night-night to the Castle at the end of another successful season. Although the front door is closed for the winter there is much happening behind the scenes. Our fund-raising drive "Raising the Standard" gathers pace to reharl the Castle and improve the visitor and community experience of both Castle and grounds. The local drive to raise £500k is progressing steadily with just over £100k raised so far. Our sell-out Comedy night in Inverurie will boost the funds by hopefully £5K - but there's still a long way to go to the necessary £1.5M. The other £1M should arrive provided we raise the £500K - so - we need your help. Please spread the word and if you fancy organising a wee fundraiser on our behalf, we'd be grateful
