Spent some couple of days on our road trip trough Scotland in the Deeside Inn. The lounge and pub are very cosy. The room itself however was rather outdated and could be cleaner. Shower didn't work properly.

The Deeside Inn is an authentic Highland inn situated in the picturesque village of Ballater in the heart of Royal Deeside - a few miles away from Balmoral Castle, the Queen's summer home. Only an hour's drive from ...More Aberdeen, this part of the Cairngorms is world famous for its stunning scenery and offers some of the best walking, climbing, mountain biking, river fishing and wildlife watching in Scotland. We can arrange a huge range of outdoor activities on behalf of our guests. The inn itself is welcoming and cosy with open log fires, wooden floors, tartan carpets, comfy tweed furnishings and well appointed comfortable bedrooms. In our Ceilidh bar we offer over 40 Scottish single malts and hearty Highland dishes, and also host fantastic traditional music sessions every other Wednesday.

I think so, although I was not impressed with the room, and only made a cursory glance. It would be worthwhile contacting them,-the staff were most helpful.
