Deeside Inn 
3 3 Star:

Victoria Road, Ballater, Aberdeenshire, AB35 5RA, Scotland.


Royal Deeside is renowned as an area of outstanding natural beauty, surrounding the valley of the River Dee which rises in the nearby Cairngorm mountains. The Cairngorms and Grampian Highlands dominate the skyline of the area and are home to a wide variety of wildlife and activities, many of which can be enjoyed on your break on Royal Deeside.

Royal Deeside is rich in abundant history and this is reflected in the number of superb castles throughout the area. In addition to Balmoral, open to the public are Braemar, Drum and Crathes, whilst there are also ruins of a number of castles that can be visited whilst staying at the Deeside Inn.

The restaurant is located on the ground floor of The Deeside Inn in the very heart of Ballater and enjoys views out to the front of the hotel. The restaurant floor has been stripped back to natural wood and this is complemented by the burgundy shade on the walls. The tables are finished off with local slate place mats and crisp white linen napkins. In the cooler months we light the roaring log fire to provide that extra glow.

The Deeside Inn, centrally located in the famous Royal Deeside village of Ballater, has a total of 57 rooms, all of which provide a welcoming and comfortable base for your stay in this beautiful part of the Grampian Highlands. There are tea and coffee making facilities in all rooms with Scottish short bread available as an accompaniment. Our well appointed rooms also offer 18 inch flat screen televisions, ensuring that you have the chance to catch up on the news or your favourite shows while you are on your break.
