Restoration, Sponsorship and Donations
Braemar Castle is an independent, non profit making charity which receives no regular
financial support from the public sector. Funding for the restoration and upkeep
must be raised through the efforts of community volunteers and the project team.
We are continuing to fund raise to complete work on the roof, install appropriate heating
and upgrade facilities in the castle as well as building a new Visitor Centre to welcome our
We are very grateful to the enormous support we have received so far from Historic Scotland,
Cairngorms Leader Fund, Aberdeenshire Council, the Cairngorms National Park Authority
as well as from private donors.
Scaffolding was erected in the autumn of 2012 and work got underway but the need for further
reports into inaccessible corners of the roof has unfortunately slowed things down a little but we are
now back on track.
Offers of funding so far are £144,700 from Historic Scotland, £70,000 from Cairngorms Leader, £50,000 from Aberdeenshire Council and a further £100,000 from the Cairngorms National Park Authority. HS and Leader funding needs to be match-funded and it’s a complicated mix to match sections of the project to sections of money! But we’re getting there – and it’s a great problem to have to deal with!
We estimate we may still be around £130,000 short of completing the roof work – and then we need to start on the rest!
