We are now closed for the winter.

The Castle has no central heating, so we have to drain the water

to avoid frozen pipes! 

We will be open again on Wednesday 3rd April

and look forward to welcoming visitors to the Castle in 2019!


 

  •   The staff are very knowledgeable, all volunteers, you pay a small amount to get in which includes a tour 👍. Really interesting lots to see, and discuss with the staff. Free parking. We will revisit this year should the opportunity arise. There are toilets onsite.

      Braemar Castle is a charming castle with a lot of history. We did the audio tour and it was well worth our time! It gives you so much history on the Farquharson Clan and the items within the castle. If you are a fan of...More

  •   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 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.

      The audio tour of this castle makes the experience very worthwhile. The self-guided audio tour allows you to move at your own pace, and choose to hear more about each room, and the history behind it. The staff is very knowledgeable about the Braemar area...More

We’ve been fortunate to secure £100K funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to develop a funding application to secure the money we need to reharl the Castle and improve the visitor experience. Lot of work involved, and the Steering Group would like to recruit the voluntary services and support of two people, one with a background in finance and another with experience in education. We’re also on the lookout for a Project Manager, volunteer, or, even paid! More info at www.asva.co.uk or email Dave Chandler davechandler32@gmail.com / 013397 41294

Fantastic! A tiny Highland community of 500 people in the heart of the #Cairngorms National Park can make events as wonderful as this happen. An absolutely terrific opening to #Braemarmountainfestival

A very special performance in St Margaret's Braemar for the opening of the 2019 Braemar Mountain Festival. One of Scotland's finest fiddle players, Adam Sutherland, was commissioned to produce a body of work inspired by some of the incredible characters and rich history behind Braemar Mountain Rescue team. This is the first piece of that work called 'The Volunteer's March', performed for the first time in public by Adam and musicians from local communities. Adam Sutherland Music Visit Braemar .

Sadly not too much snow for Winter sports enthusiasts at the moment but there are still wonderful low level walks around the village with fantastic views and crystal clear mountain air to breathe. Good path map published by the Cairngorms National Park to help you on your way.
