The highlight for every visit to Balmoral is the Ballroom, the largest room in the castle.
On display this year you will find a wonderful collection of His Majesty the King’s watercolours; depicting a range of scenes painted at Balmoral, Birkhall, Highgrove and Sandringham.
Also on display will be a selection of outfits worn by His Majesty King Charles, Her Majesty Queen Camilla and other members of the Royal Family.
The Ballroom is still much used by the Royal Family today and is the venue for any large gatherings and dances during Their Majesty’s stay at Balmoral.
The current castle was built in 1855, to designs created by Prince Albert and the Aberdeen architect William Smith. The Ballroom was the last room to be completed and was designed to house balls and other functions for the royal visit. Underneath the carpet is the original Yew wooden floor, which has seen many dances.
In the Mews area you will find our spacious gift shop and café serving fresh food daily and an exhibition for The Aberdeen Association of Royal Warrant Holders.
