From a gentle stroll to skiing off-piste, the beauty of the Cairngorms is yours for the taking...


Braemar Village and Surroundings
The beautiful village of Braemar has six waymarked trails in and around it, including the Queens Drive and Lion Face routes. Other routes take you through the surrounding pine forests, with spectacular village and mountain views, or along the River Dee and up Morrone, the mountain which towers over the caravan park.

Invercauld Estate
Invercauld Estate has eleven Munros and seven Corbetts to explore, with access to many more on neighbouring estates.
Park up at Auchallater car park to walk Jocks Road, or to Loch Callater. If you park three miles east, at Keiloch, there is easy access to investigate sheltered glens or hike up into the hills for panoramic views.

We offer a fully illustrated guide to our favourite walking and cycling routes around Invercauld. The 16-page guide contains 8 walks from Braemar Caravan Park and elsewhere on Invercauld Estate. It contains detailed maps and a guide to some of the wildlife you may see en route.

You can pick up a physical copy at the site shop or order online from here.

We also offer a digital version of the guide optimised for digital devices like smartphones and tablets, which you can buy here.

The Cairngorms
As well as the routes mentioned above, there are a wealth of other places to explore on foot, including magnificent glens, hills and forests.
Just five miles away is Glen Ey, where you can hike to the Colonel’s Bed – a rocky river chasm where John Farquhason hid after the Battle of Killiecrankie in 1689.
Six miles from the caravan park is the Linn of Dee which has some of the most famous walks in the area including the hill pass of the Lairig Ghru. From Linn of Dee you can also reach three of the four highest mountains in Britain; Ben Macdui, Braeriach and Cairn Toul.

For expert guidance, bespoke walks, group tours, or wilderness workshops, Hillgoers offer a range of options to suit any skill level.


The immediate environs of the caravan park are ideal for exploration by bike. If you fancy something more challenging, the long climbs of Glenshee and Cock Bridge will reward you with fantastic views.

There are such a range of options in the area that you are certain to find your ideal route: from expert-level mountain biking trails to fast-paced road cycling, or maybe simply a gentle meander through beautiful scenery.

If you are staying with us at Braemar Caravan Park and would like to keep your bikes in a secure place, we are happy to store them in the locked garage overnight.

Some of the most prestigious golf clubs in the world can be found in the Highlands: Gleneagles, Cabot Highland and Nairn to name just a few. With pristine greens, incredible sea and landscapes and some of the friendliest clubhouses, our national sport is open to golfers of all ages.

Here are a few that are closest to us:

Braemar Golf Club is adjacent to Braemar Caravan Park, so is in easy walking distance from the site. Braemar is the highest 18-hole golf course in Scotland at around 1,100 feet above sea level.

The greens are amongst the finest in the area and whilst it is relatively short (measuring 4,935 off the medal tees), it will test golfers of any standard.

Further afield is Ballater Golf Club. This 18-hole heathland course in Upper Deeside has greens that lie close to the River Dee so watch out when you're teeing off!

Fifteen miles away, Dalmunzie Golf Club is a 9-hole course situated on the beautiful Dalmunzie estate. It offers challenging terrain, incredible views, and fine dining afterwards at the hotel restaurant.

Salmon and trout fishing opportunities are first class on Invercauld Estate. Fishing the River Dee accompanied by a ghillie is an unmissable experience for enthusiasts.

There are also several hill lochs where fishing for brown trout is possible. The remote hill lochs are set in spectacular scenery and well worth the effort to get there. There are boats to hire if you want to get out onto the water at Loch Beannie in Glenshee.

The River operates a catch and release policy as part of an important package of conservation measures to improve the bio-diversity of the river system.
