WELCOME TO BALLATER!

Ballater is a village rich in history and is home to more than 1500 residents as well as an estimated 1000 visitors at the height of the summer. Many residents can trace their family history back 100s of years in the Deeside area. Ballater also has a large number of residents originally from elsewhere in the UK and many other countries. At one time, there was a sign in the Ballater Post Office that said, “I may not have been born in Scotland but I got here as soon as I could!” and that is so true for many who live here! Regardless of our origins, Ballater is home and whether you are a resident of Ballater, born & bred; an “Incomer” (or the more politically correct “Newcomer”), or one of our many visitors… 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!

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.
