A Entertainment in Balmoral
Braemar Community Ltd. has just signed a 50 year lease for Braemar Castle and plan to re-open the castle to visitors as soon as possible. Work has already started to get the building into shape to be able to welcome the public within these walls. The first working parties of volunteers took place on Sundays 1st , 8th & 15th April 2007. Working parties will continue to be held most Sundays from 12.30 to 4.00 p.m. and perhaps at other times by arrangement. All are welcome to come along and lend a hand - be prepared to get dirty!! If you are interested please contact Bill Marshall on 013397-41695.

The Private House Stay's Guide
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.
