Braemar Castle says  Thank You! Jacobite Day at Braemar Castle





July 24 was a truly remarkavle example of David Cameron's Big Society with  some  50  villagers helping in   one way or another to make the day the resounding success it was.   From car parkers and ticket sellers, to bakers and tailors, from singers and dancers to stall holders and artists, from castle guides and shop keepers to musicians and

photographers, Braemar had them all. Special thanks are due to our friends from Ballater, Tarland and Aboyne who also helped in various roles.    

 Visitors to the village were very impressed by the high standard of the entertainment on offer, and the obvious  community spirit permeating throughout. The crowd through the gate was close to 700, while the castle had  over 260 visitors. A healthy profit of over £3500 will help towards the appeal for a much needed new roof.
