Queen Victoria made Royal Deeside famous when she purchased Balmoral Castle together with her consort Prince Albert. 
The Castle was too small for Queen Victotoria and she had it rebuilt.
The present Castle was finished in 1856 and is open to the public from April to July.

Balmoral Estate covers nearly 50,000 acres and includes farms and grouse moors. 
Balmoral estate is inside The Cairngorm National Park.
