Awarded AA Bed & Breakfast of the Year 2024, the Auld Kirk is a multi-award winning AA 4 Star Gold and a VisitScotland 4 Star B&B offering comfortable accommodation with en-suite facilities. Built in the 1860’s our B&B is a fine example of an early Victorian Scottish Free Church building that is set in the heart of Royal Deeside, within the Cairngorms National Park. 

We have 7 en-suite bedrooms consisting of 2 twins, one of which is a family room, 4 king sized and one double.

Constructed from local granite, the Auld Kirk sits on the western edge of the historic village of Ballater, looking onto Craig en Darroch (the hill of Oaks), on the road towards Braemar. A great base to visit the attractions of Royal Deeside, Balmoral Castle and the numerous walks and climbs in the area.

The second Thursday of August sees the Ballater Highland Games, a tradition in Ballater since 1864.
