Planning for your visit to Braemar

It's that time of year again when the days are getting longer, the flowers and trees start to wake up, the birds start to nest, and our thoughts turn to planning trips away. Whether Caravan, Motorhome, Campervan, tent or staying in one of our Camping pods, Braemar Caravan Park is a fantastic place to stay, in such a beautiful location in the Cairngorms National Park.

There are so many opportunities for exploring and outdoor adventures on our doorstep, and there are also many places to visit, both well established favourites like Braemar Castle and Balmoral Castle, The Braemar Gathering and a number of new places to visit. 

The New Braemar Highland Games centre opened on the 15th March. The centre has an exhibition hall, Gallery, Café, Shop and Archive. You can discover all about the world famous Braemar Gathering which has been an annual event since 1832.

For a small village there is a really great choice of places to eat out, whether for Breakfast, lunch or dinner; casual quick bites to eat, coffee and cake, or a special occasion. The much anticipated opening of the Fife arms has the already infamous 'Flying Stag', a cocktail bar, Drawing room for High tea and the Clunie dining room for that special evening meal. There is a café in the Braemar Highland Games centre cafe, the much loved favourites Bothy and Taste, The Bistro and more, will soon be joined by Farquharsons Bar and Kitchen. For more information on eating out in Braemar Visit the VisitBraemar page.

And why not enjoy the spectacular routes of the Snow roads and the North East 250 while you're in the area. These routes will take you through some breath taking scenery, to some wonderful villages, where you can explore the amazing variety of the North East of Scotland.

Whatever you do when you are in Braemar, it'll make you want to keep coming back again and again.

See you soon.
