About the local area

Just 6 miles from Balmoral, it became established in Victorian times and is still noted for its royal connections, with many businesses displaying the Royal warrants as testimony. This charming and thriving village is known as the jewel in the crown of Royal Deeside and certainly lives up to its reputation. It has an excellent selection of interesting and unusual specialist shops, as well as an exceptional number of good quality restaurants, pubs and cafes, all within a short walk of the property. Set in the Cairngorm National Park - the largest national park in Britain - this magnificent area is renowned for its superb mountain scenery, historic towns and villages, such as Braemar and Aboyne, and it’s incredible range of outdoor activities. Climbing, hill walking, mountain biking, cross country and downhill skiing, horse riding, canoeing and sailing are all enjoyed in the immediate area. Situated on the River Dee, the area is also renowned for its salmon fishing. Permits to fish can be obtained locally. Walking enthusiasts are spoilt for choice, with majestic Lochnagar one of Scotland’s finest mountains, right on the doorstep. Ballater also has a fine 18 hole golf course which is open to visitors. There are a number of special events throughout the season, including highland games, a popular Walking Week and in August Ballater plays host to Victoria Week. Three of the five Scottish ski centres (Caingorm, The Lecht and Glenshee) are all contained within the Cairngorm National Park. Places of historic interest abound. The castles of Balmoral, Fraser, Drum and Braemar are all within easy reach and the Whiskey Trail encompasses many of the renowned Highland malts that originate in the region. Viewington Cottage is a lovely welcoming base from which to enjoy and explore this historic and fascinating area of Highland Scotland.
