Braemar Highland Games Centre

Braemar Highland Games Centre


For now the Games Centre remains closed with plans to re-open April 2021.
The Braemar Highland Games Centre explores a living tradition, the Highland games, focusing on the world-famous Braemar
Gathering and its long-standing royal connections. Housed in The Duke of Rothesay Highland Games Pavilion, it was unveiled by HM The Queen in September 2018. The building is named in honour of HRH The Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay, a keen supporter of the project through his charity, The Prince's Foundation.

The Pavilion's exhibition will tell the story of Highland games and gatherings throughout the ages, celebrating the deep-rooted cultural and sporting traditions of Scotland. The unique story of the Braemar Gathering and the organisation behind it, the Braemar Royal Highland Society, founded in 1815, will be told through objects, documents and costumes. Discover how the Gathering's continuing link with the Royal Family began with Queen Victoria, learn about Highland games activities such as piping, dancing and heavy events, and see original Highlander uniforms, complete with kilts!

The Pavilion cafe, tastefully furnished with the Duke of Rothesay tartan, is a comfortable place for a morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea. From local hams, breads and cheeses to beautiful smoked salmon from the North East coast, the menu will celebrate the best that Scotland, and in particular Aberdeenshire, has to offer. Finish off your visit by picking up a souvenir of your day from our shop, or even by buying tickets to the next Braemar Gathering!
