In Braemar there’s an abundance of well-signposted, low-level walking which makes it a wonderful place for ramblers, who can look out at the many hills which surround the village and enjoy some sustenance in the cafes and restaurants.  It’s a wildlife hot spot and views are often accompanied by the sound of roaring deer stag or sightings of red squirrels and golden eagles.
