Braemar Gathering takes place on the first Saturday in September. The Gathering is held at at The Princess Royal & Duke of Fife Memorial Park in the centre of Braemar. The patron of The Games is Her Majesty The Queen whose Scottish residence is nearby Balmoral Castle. Events start at 9.30 a.m.
The photo shows The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh; arriving in their Bentley; at Braemar Gathering. The Royal couple are accompanied by Prince Charles.
Parking facilities are on the fields on the edge of the village. The grassy banks of The Memorial Park form a great natural vantage point. You can also buy grandstand tickets in advance (recommended).
You are advised to arrive early to avoid traffic congestion. If you are coming over Glenshee watch out for red deer. The best chance of spotting red deer in summer is in the evenings. Remember if one runs across the road it’s likely to be immediately followed by several others.
