Cosy and relaxing break. Scones had all gone by the afternoon. Tea and cakes were lovely anyway. Highly recommended tea stop.

Ballater has plenty of tea shops, but not many can accommodate someone in a wheelchair. The Bothy has the space, though it means getting the chair up a step without a ramp. A friendly place, with a good selection of home-made cakes and scones, generous portions, and not over-priced.

I went here with my friend . We camp annually with a large group. We went in here after an appalling wait/lack of service at the Station.
So glad we did. Wish we came here first.
Counter to order but only took minutes.The girl was really friendly and cheery. The place was busy with only one available table outside. Food presented beautifully . I had baked potato with coronation chicken and a wee salad. Thoroughly enjoyable.
So delighted, we came back for afternoon drinks n cakes a few days later with our girls.

No better place in Ballater to refuel after a vigorous walk - the lovely home made scones are hard to resist unless one of the cakes catches the eye - sometimes its best to share!
The Bothy always gives a warm welcome - light and bright in Summer, cosy by the stove in the cooler months.
We have had breakfasts, coffees and lunches and never been disappointed.
