Balmoral Arms

Toggle location map

The newly launched Balmoral Arms sits in the heart of the Victorian village of Ballater, Royal Deeside, Scotland.

Featuring luxurious rooms and suites, our four-star inn has had a royal five-star upgrade with locally inspired cuisine.

Seasonal produce from the Cairngorms, working with local gamekeepers, farms and growers.

After a day on the hills, kick-off muddy boots and head to Ghillies Bar for ales from the area before hearty dishes such as game stews, grilled venison and kitchen specials in the restaurant.

Then snuggle up on the sofa by the roaring fire and traditional music with our range of over 100 Scottish malt whiskies and gins.

Pay a visit to the Balmoral Arms, find the Queen's Ballater accommodation and Balmoral Castle. Discover the River Dee, while admiring the iconic wildlife from soaring eagles and red squirrels to Scottish wildcats.

Explore everything the Cairngorms National Park has to offer.

Rooms at Balmoral Arms include a selection of sizes and styles to reflect how guests wish to spend their time in Royal Deeside.

Contemporary interiors hint at our Victorian heritage in some rooms, with Highland hues in others. Budget rooms offer simple comfort and welcome touches for those spending more time outside than in. Family dogs are also made to feel at home.
