INTRODUCTION

Dating originally from 1870 this former Victorian shooting lodge is now a delightful country house style hotel exuding charm and quality. In addition to the main hotel Braemar Lodge can offer a range of accommodation - to suit all "tastes" and "pockets" - with the inclusion of a bunkhouse hostel alongside the main hotel and the availability of the 9 chalets in the garden grounds. Truly a multi-faceted leisure business.

The attraction of Royal Deeside, and the "heart" of Cairngorms, is well known and familiar to generations of tourists, holidaymakers and sportsmen drawn to the locality, with its Royal connection, and the Highland Games on an annual basis. Braemar is probably the busiest tourist centre in Royal Deeside and is ideally placed, being accessible to Deeside , Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen as well as to Perthshire and Perth to the south, via Glenshee. As a result Braemar benefits from the influx of summer visitors generating regular repeat custom to the Braemar Lodge Hotel and Chalets. As well as the array of golf courses, fishing, shooting in the area the locality is a year round destination and with the proximity of the Glenshee ski slopes to Braemar that too brings additional business.

The sellers have owned Braemar Lodge since 1996 and during their period of ownership have extensively refurbished the main property and added the bunkhouse and all of the self-catering chalets. More recently, also, the extension of the dining and restaurant facilities. The business has established an excellent reputation and as a result attracts high volume of repeat custom. The decision to sell is - a retirement sale - offering a wonderful opportunity to new owners to purchase and take over a multi faceted and established business in an ever popular Highland location.
