      The castle is fascinating, and the tour guide was knowledgable, enthusiastic and entertaining. This is a castle tour where you get to see almost every room, with lots of interesting supporting furniture and artefacts and stories. The place has been rescued but needs a lot...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

The Castle is operated by Braemar Community Limited on behalf of, and with help of, the village. This is another of BCL's successes. At one time, in the distant future once all the repairs are done, the Castle will also generate income for the community.

We have just surpassed producing 2/3 million kWh of electricity since the hydroscheme was commissioned in the summer of 2016. This is equivalent to 500 tonnes of CO2 greenhouse gas emissions saved. This November has been excellent for generation and this video shows the Corriemulzie Burn in spate conditions recently. Although it was our best month for production this year we are still some way from off-setting the dry summer period. Let's hope December proves to be another record month!

Such a exciting moment for the village. Our much-loved but tired old lady has had a complete make-over and the wraps are coming off. The Fife was falling down and has been rescued from the ashes thanks to Iwan an Manuela.
