The property is located 9 miles from Balmoral Castle, 9 miles from Royal Lochnagar Distillery and 15 miles from Lecht 2090. The property provides a shared kitchen and a shared lounge for guests. Daniel and Dominique are wonderful hosts. We’ve stayed in hostels all over Scotland, but this is the very best. We keep it our highest marks!
Gordon Guest house is located in Ballater, within Cairngorns National Park. Free WiFi access is available. Each room here will provide you with a TV. Beautiful guest house in an excellent location in the city center. The gregarious hosts, Martin and Amanda, have created an atmosphere that feels like family. They offered all kinds of terrific suggestions for places to see and things to do. Their breakfast was delicious and filling and their coffee was good and strong. I especially enjoyed their fresh fruit salad and breads.
This former church has been tastefully converted, enabling retention of the original features. Auld Kirk Hotel is located in the heart of picturesque Royal Deeside. Breakfast was great....welcome cookies ( homemade shortbread biscuits) hit the spot and all the tips about traveling in the area were very welcome. Helen and her helper were great!
Located in Ballater, 9 miles from Balmoral Castle, Inverenzie has accommodations with a garden, free WiFi, a shared kitchen, and a shared lounge. Everything about Inverenzie was superb. The cottage itself has been decorated very tastefully and has lots of lovely touches. The views are amazing and especially from the hot tub. The location is stunning and off the beaten track.

Ballater is a pretty highland village situated on the river Dee in an area of outstanding natural beauty. As well as lovely walks, independent shops, eateries and restaurants it has a fabulous camp site right on the river.
Pretty area - castles to see, small towns with friendly people - food good with good prices in the area. Cairngorm man is great - funicular great walk around the top is the MTV great - not to be missed
We loved visiting Balmoral Castle. The audio guide was good, and the walks around the estate were even better. Ask for the trail map when you buy your ticket. I found a cute dress shop with OK prices.
This has for many years been a kind of home from home, and we love both the town and the surrounding countryside. I would recommend it to anyone. At the moment the town is still recovering from disastrous floods last winter, but there is still plenty to do and see. We love Loch Muick (but make sure you have £4 in coins for the car park - excellent value). Lochnagar is a stunning mountain; if you are fit, climb it, if not, enjoy the many excellent views of it, particularly from the Balmoral-Tomintoul road. Then there's Balmoral, of course, open in early summer and well worth a visit.
Lovely village in heart of Royal Deeside. Sad to witness the devastation of the recent floods. Several shops closed but pleased we visited & lent our support. Alexandra Hotel - reasonable food at reasonable cost. Deeside a Hotel - very depressing & food left a lot to be desired. White wine served warm. Hilton country club good to pop in for meals & bar snacks. Braemar, Balmoral, Crathie all nearby.

Tucked into a really sweet town, the Deeside Inn is the perfect mountain retreat. Fans of Britain’s Royal Family, and whisky alike, will appreciate the proximity to Balmoral Castle and Royal Lochnagar Distillery, while those seeking outdoor activities and scenery will be pleased with the trails, golfing, fishing, (we were there in May, so can’t comment on skiing), and stunning views throughout Cairngorms National Park. Dinner at the bar was delicious (try the chicken and ham pie!), and breakfast in the dining room was equally good.

Very good location in Ballater. Nice hospitality and very comfortable room. Our family of three stayed in the Garden Room and it was really lovely. A great plus was the large bathtub in addition to a shower. The breakfast was delicious. Really a gem of a place.

Unusual bed and breakfast but with lots of nice touches. Breakfast was extremely well done and offered a great European style continental plus a full Scottish menu. Great coffee. Informative host. The location is walking distance to pubs and restaurants.
