Looks beautiful! A fantastic restoration. Car parking reinstated for the tourists. Tea/ coffee shop may re-open mid/end Aug.

It looked close to being ready and should be lovely once done. There was a painter still working on it in the evening

Ruined by fire a while ago, this place is in the process of a full restoration. However, at the moment an eyesore and no parking!!

This was authentic . Everything about it was original, and I can't imagine what it will be like after re-build. As far as I can see outside is going to look the same. Whether inside can be recreated, I don't know. Watch this space!

This is now closed due to a fire last year. Last time we visited it really was not as good as on previous visits. Food and service was poor. Hope when it reopens, work is in progress it will be much improved.

Don't make a trip for this site! It is under wraps while they rebuild. Ballater is a nice place to stay for day trips all around the Scottish highlands.

Station being rebuilt as it burnt down. Not sure when it will be complete or look like. Wait and see I guess.
