Biographical Info

Braemar Castle was built in 1628 in a commanding position overlooking the River Dee.  There were wide sweeping views up towards the mountain passes of Glen Clunie and the Lairig Ghru and down towards Deeside. The lands around the castle were owned by the Earls of Mar, hence the name Braemar, which translates as the ‘hills of Mar.’
