Candacraig is a place built on countless moments throughout its rich and interesting history — we invite visitors to indulge their curiosity and be part of the moments to come.
Those fascinated by the unique heritage of Scotland will find much to savour, and Candacraig’s own story — stretching back to the 17th century — is just the beginning.
For visitors in season (April-July), the renowned royal residence at Balmoral lies just a few miles south, and offers countless discoveries for historical enthusiasts. The area surrounding Candacraig is also landmarked by numerous other castles of note — including Glenbuchat, Corgarff, Knock and Craigievar — each with their own tales to tell.
If you’re intrigued by a place that holds tradition and modern life in perfect balance, then the historic village of Braemar is just a short drive from our doorstep — the picturesque home of the annual Braemar Gathering (September) and the historic site of the 1715 Jacobite rising.
Scotland’s historic traditions live and breathe here still — and whether its a Hogmanay to remember, a celebratory Burns Supper, a day at the Highland Games or a folk music festival, visitors and guests are always most welcome to experience this history anew.
