  •   We visited on a rather blustery day with howling winds and cold temperatures, but it gave us such a feel of what living there in the winter must have been like. The sound of the wind against the chimneys and windows was crazy! It was...More

  •   The castle actually looks a lot more like an ordinary house with the interior decoration and the audiotour has very nice stories to tell about the rooms, the house and its inhabitants. With interesting short stories and tales. Lovely 360 views on the surroundings.

      It’s not one of the biggest or grandest castles, almost the size of a large keep. It has about 12 rooms that are restored to a really interesting condition. It’s more like a look back to the 1950’s than a real look back in history,...More

Can't let Robert Louis Stevenson Day 2018 pass without remembering that he wrote the first 16 chapters of his most famous novel, "Treasure Island" to amuse his step-son on a wet holiday in Braemar! Which gives the Castle volunteers yet another chance to dress up and pretend - Roger this time! Across the summer, enjoy a walk with Braemar Local History group and you might just meet RLS (well - Roger).

Great news! Braemar Castle has secured an initial contribution of up to £100k development funding from the National Lottery. The funding will help progress proposals to apply for a full Heritage Lottery Fund grant at a later date as part of a £1.6M "Raising the Standard" project to make the Castle fit for purpose in the long term.
The project aims to carry out essential conservation work to secure the Castle's physical future but also to engage a broader spectrum of people with the community project.
Here’s a video with the Chair of Braemar Community Limited, Simon Blackett and Project Manager and Heritage Consultant, Ian Davidson.
