An impressive former shooting lodge, standing in extensive grounds in the heart of Cairngorms National Park, Braemar Youth Hostel is a great base for exploring Royal Deeside, with its castles and distilleries. Year-round activities include mountain biking, wildlife watching and golf. Balmoral Castle, the Queen’s Scottish home, is nearby (open between April-July). In winter Braemar’s a great location for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy skiing and boarding at Glenshee and The Lecht or walking in the Cairngorms. The youth hostel is a mix of traditional interiors and modern furnishings, with many homely touches like big comfy sofas, a large self-catering kitchen and a spacious dining room. Private and family rooms are available - or you can rent the whole property for exclusive use with RentaHostel. Dogs are welcome at Braemar, for a small fee, when guests book a private room. Please notify us in advance to ensure that a dog friendly room is allocated.
