WELCOME TO BALLATER!

Ballater is a beautiful Victorian village home to more than 1500 residents as well as an estimated 1000 visitors at the height of the summer. Many of our residents originate from elsewhere in the UK and many other countries.

We hope that you will find the information on this website and the many links contained in it interesting and helpful! Email us at info@ballatercommunity.com with your queries, your photos, your news & your views!

Ballater is flourishing after renovations necessary because the River Dee burst its banks over New Year 2016. Almost all of our Bridge Street businesses have been rebuilt and are looking forward to a bright future!

In addition, the Old Royal Station in Ballater’s Station Square was affected by a fire in May 2015. Construction is in progress for a new and improved Visitor Centre and Station Square, which is scheduled to open in Spring 2018.

Many thanks to Kathleen Puddicombe, Deeside Images and many others for their kind permission to use their beautiful photographs of Ballater and the surrounding countryside – more photos are always on our FACEBOOK page, Ballater Community!
Events & information about Ballater and the area from Crathie to Dinnet can be found here and also at www.visitballater.com.
