Property Information:

Braemar Youth Hostel is an impressive former shooting lodge standing within extensive grounds in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. It's an ideal base for exploring Royal Deeside and the mighty Cairngorms and in winter is a great location for skiing and boarding at Glenshee and The Lecht. Balmoral Castle, the Queen’s Scottish home, is nearby (open between April-July) and there are many distilleries to visit including Lochnagar. Other activities include hillwalking, mountain biking, wildlife watching and golf.
