The Deeside Inn is an authentic Highland inn situated in the picturesque village of Ballater in the heart of Royal Deeside - a few miles away from Balmoral Castle, the Queen's summer home. Only an hour's drive from Aberdeen, this part of the Cairngorms is world famous for its stunning scenery and offers some of the best walking, climbing, mountain biking, river fishing and wildlife watching in Scotland. We can arrange a huge range of outdoor activities on behalf of our guests. The inn itself is welcoming and cosy with open log fires, wooden floors, tartan carpets, comfy tweed furnishings and well appointed comfortable bedrooms. In our Ceilidh bar we offer over 40 Scottish single malts and hearty Highland dishes, and also host fantastic traditional music sessions every other Wednesday. In our brasserie style restaurant we offer an a la carte and grill menu, which feature game, salmon and Highland beef.

Just spent three nights at the hotel. An older Highland style hotel. Room clean and tidy with comfortable bed, although décor could do with updating. Staff were friendly and efficient. Evening meals in the lounge bar were excellent. A very relaxing stay.

I think so, although I was not impressed with the room, and only made a cursory glance. It would be worthwhile contacting them,-the staff were most helpful.
