Museums and Art Galleries in BalmoralThe Balmoral castle
Original purchased by Queen Victoria in 1848, Balmoral has been the main Scottish home for the Royal family ever since (Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh is mainly only used for ceremonial purposes). It is open to the public from 1st April to 31st July. A significant proportion of the Estate is also open to the public via the The Spittal of Glen Muick where there is a ranger service and walks up the seven Munro's that are situated within the estate. The closest town to the Castle is Ballater and is remarkeable for the quantity of businesses with Royal Warrants displayed outside.
There are two art galleries worth mentioning in the Balmoral area: The McEwan Gallery and The Milton Art Gallery and the significant museum is the The Old Royal Station museum that has recently been destroyed by fire but hopefully will be restored soon.
