The Auld Kirk is a fine example of an early Victorian Scottish Free Church building that is set in the heart of Royal Deeside, within the Cairngorms National Park, which has been converted to a fully licensed hotel
Constructed from local granite, the Auld Kirk sits on the western edge of the historic village, looking onto Craigendarroch (the hill of Oaks), on the road towards Braemar.
The Auld Kirk has 7 comfortable bedrooms and houses a stylish coffee lounge that is popular with the local population and visitors alike. A great place to stop for a morning coffee, meet friends for a light lunch or linger over an indulgent afternoon tea.
