After extensive fire damage 2 years ago Darroch Learg Hotel has remained closed. A major renovation has taken place which has taken longer than originally planned but a number of obstacles had to be overcome, notwithstanding health and safety regulations and all the local council regulations.

Although the exterior shape of the building will remain (in accordance with statutory rules and regulations) there has been a complete makeover within – carefully planned with a professional input. Apart from a slight change with the internal structure everything is new. Carpets, fabrics and furniture chosen to complement a Victorian country house and to maintain the elegance and warmth that existed before. Traits of a more graceful era with comfortable public rooms and roaring log fires.

Emphasis once again on good food and a wine cellar of note. This hotel has always been driven by its reputation for excellent cuisine.

Bedrooms are bespoke and offer every comfort.

Ballater is ‘in the heart’ of Royal Deeside and a popular tourist destination for many.

Plenty of hills to climb or just follow the castle or whisky trails.

Resident owners of many years, Nigel and Fiona Franks will offically open the hotel at Easter 2018. (Although everything will be in place a few months before!)

Always highly recommended.
