Balmoral Estate has a very appealing location amongst the magnificent scenery of Royal Deeside, and it is easy to understand why it is a favourite place of the Royals. Purchased by Prince Albert in 1852 for Queen Victoria, the Estate has been the Scottish holiday home of the Royal Family ever since.
Balmoral is a key attraction in Scotland, however we find it disappointing as the Castle itself is not accessible to the public apart from the Ballroom, which has been converted into a constant exhibition displaying pictures of the other rooms in the Castle. The grounds are extensive and beautiful, and the stables have a collection of Royal carriages and cars. There is an excellent tearoom and shop, but the lack of access to the Castle, which you came to visit, is a frustration.
