Braemar Castle, operated by the local community since 2007, is currently undergoing a £1.6M restoration programme thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic Environment Scotland and the amazing fundraising efforts of this very small community of just 500 folk.
Our “Raising the Standard” project will reharl (re-render) the exterior of our currently, somewhat scruffy-looking, Castle and will also put in place an ambitious engagement and learning programme. More information at
We are aiming for a re-opening date of July 2023
In the meantime, we apologise that the gates are locked, this is for safety reasons and we very much look forward to welcoming you back in 2023
