Ballater’s Old Royal Station


Ballater’s Old Royal Station is one for the history books. Most of the 19th century royalty passed through this station alongside their guests and visitors at one time or another. After suffering a disastrous fire in 2015, the station has officially reopened as a tourist information centre, providing a souvenir shop, bistro and tearoom, a museum and exhibition celebrating the station’s links with royalty. Only a 15 min drive outside of Ballater, head to the Royal Lochnagar Distillery where you can uncover more royal connections of the past with a distillery tour. Make sure you book ahead.
