Braemar Castle

Braemar Castle has been a distinctive feature of the landscape for almost 400 years and a witness to dramatic events throughout its history. Since 2007, it has thrived as a visitor attraction under the capable management of the local community.

Now, as the Castle shows signs of its age, the community is delivering a new £1.6m vision to conserve the Castle, re-develop its grounds and take it out into the community through to an ambitious and far-reaching programme for learning and engagement.

Their fundraising campaign is already well-advanced. With support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and other statutory funders, the foundations are in place. Gifts from other generous donors, locally and nationwide, have ensured that our campaign for £600,000 from individuals, trusts and companies is well underway. With the project starting in autumn 2021 and running to 2023, find out more about how Braemar Castle is ‘Raising the Standard’ and how you can support the project here.
