Private Groups & Tours in Royal Deeside, Scotland

The Deeside Inn set in Ballater, in the heart of Royal Deeside, welcomes coach parties from every corner of the UK, Europe and the USA for overnight group accommodation stays, high tea stops or lunch parties. In addition to agents arranging organised group tours, we see many social clubs and associations that want to arrange walking, fishing or sightseeing breaks in the Scottish Highlands.

We understand most group organisers will have pre-arranged activities for the groups itinerary in advance of the tour, however we are always happy to help with ideas for any activities and outdoor sight-seeing trips locally around Royal Deeside, please just ask at the time of booking!
