The Deeside Inn

The Deeside Inn is situated in the picturesque village of Ballater, in the heart of Royal Deeside. Its wooden panelling and beamed ceilings reflect the Victorian era in which the property was built and its log fires and tweed sofas give it a cosy and welcoming atmosphere.

The rooms all come with free WiFi, a flat-screen television and tea/coffee making facilities.

The traditional feel of the inn is continued into its restaurant that has an open fire and collection of antiques, offering a homey, rustic atmosphere. From its à la carte or six course taster menu you can enjoy a hearty meal with a contemporary twist.

A hotspot for live music, The Deeside Inn’s lounge and bar attracts a host of musicians and guarantees a warm Highland welcome and great selection of whiskeys and Real Ales.

Sitting on the banks of the River Dee, the Inn is surrounded by gorgeous views of The Cairngorms National Park and is an ideal base for taking scenic walks surrounded by unspoiled countryside. Other nearby attractions not to be missed include the Whiskey Trail, Balmoral Castle and the Victorian Heritage Trail.
