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!

Home security advice... We're reminding householders not to let the improved weather blind them to the importance of home security... - As you spend time outdoors in the warm weather, doors and windows are often left wide open, providing a ready invitation to passing opportunist thieves who could sneak in and out in a matter of seconds taking valuable property with them. Keep windows and doors locked. - Don't keep any keys or valuables within arm’s reach of the front or back door - keep them out of sight. - For visibility at night, consider sensor-operated lighting which is convenient and an effective deterrent. - If your shed/garage has windows, consider fitting a curtain, or similar, to obscure the view of the shed contents. - Mark all the electrical equipment with an ultraviolet marker pen or register at www.immobilise.com - If you have an alarm - make sure and use it. Also, consider an intruder alarm for your shed or outbuilding. - Never leave your shed/garage unlocked. Are the locks secure?
