Her Majesty, The Queen unveiled the Ballater Diamond Jubilee Cairn at 6.15pm on Thursday 27th September, 2012.
Ballater is home to more than 1500 residents as well as an estimated 1000 visitors at the height of the summer. Our village is rich in history and many residents can trace their family history back 100s of years in the Deeside area. Ballater also has a large number of residents originally from elsewhere in the UK and many other countries. At one time, there was a sign in the Ballater Post Office that said, “I may not have been born in Scotland but I got here as soon as I could!” and that is so true for many who live here!
Regardless of our origins, Ballater is home and whether you are a resident of Ballater, born & bred; an ‘Incomer’ (or the more politically correct ‘Newcomer’), or one of our many visitors... we hope that you will find the information on this web site and the many links contained in it interesting and helpful!
