HOW TO GET THERE Ballater is situated approximately 40 miles west of Aberdeen. The journey by car takes 50 minutes. On entering the Village, take the first opening on the right into Albert Road, which is a one way street. Alcote is situated on the left hand side and is recognisable from its white roughcast walls and the “off-street” parking space at the front.
GENERAL Ballater has a long history but the area was not settled until the late 18th Century, first as a spa resort to accommodate visitors to the Pannanich mineral well. There was expansion in the mid 19th Century with the arrival of the railway which brought many visitors to the area, many of whom decided to stay – including Queen Victoria and Prince Albert at Balmoral, beginning the Royal connection with the area. The Village is still popular with tourists from all over the world because of the Royal connection but also because of the magnificent scenery in what is now the Cairngorm National Park and the many outdoor activities in the area, including walking, riding, cycling, golf (on many good courses in the area), deer stalking, pheasant and grouse shooting, and fishing on the River Dee. In the Winter, there is ski-ing and other cold weather activities at the nearby centres at Glenshee and The Lecht. The Village has a wide range of shops, restaurants and Hotels. Ballater Primary School is well regarded and secondary education is at Aboyne.
