      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

  •   Love going here. You can wander about at your leisure and enjoy every second of this adventure into the past. It’s so quiet when there’s no one around. Feels like you’ve gone back in time.

Fantastic day of music here in Braemar on Saturday and you can fit in a tour to the Castle with a joint ticket. "One Fine Day" was fantastic last year, shaping up to be even better this year - not to be missed.

Remembering the 6th Earl of Mar who owned Braemar Castle until he lost it following the defeat of the Jacobites in the 1715 rebellion which he instigated - right here! And of course, remembering all who died for the Stewart cause between 1689 and 1746.

The events of September 1715 are remembered in Braemar with a ceremony on the Braes o' Mar where the Jacobite uprising began. The standard is raised and a wreath of white roses laid at the stone commemorating the event. Afterwards the assembled cast join a parade through the village of Braemar, led by Newtonhill Pipeband.

A fantastic new beginning for the wonderful much-loved Fife Arms Hotel (so many Braemar folk met their partners working there over the years! - maybe even a romantic opportunity awaits!) We're so excited and can't wait for the grand old lady to open again and to meet new friends. Come to Braemar!
