By Car: Braemar Castle is situated a quarter of a mile east of Braemar on a sweeping bend on the A93. As you approach the village from the Aberdeen direction, the car park is beyond the castle. Approaching from Perth, travel past the village heading for Aberdeen, the car park is just beyond the graveyard, before the castle.
The castle is a pleasant walk from the centre of the village . A stroll past the Invercauld Arms Hotel (the 1715 Jacobite uprising began here) and past the graveyard where the oldest Jacobite and generations of the Farquharson family are buried, takes you to the entrance to the Castle.
By Bus: A regular bus service (201) runs between Aberdeen and Braemar (59 miles) or arrive in style on the open-top service (200) which runs between Braemar and Glenmuick at weekends during May and June, and daily throughout the school holidays. Timetables and more info at Stagecoach Bluebird
