Arrangements for group visits to this wonderful five star visitor attraction

Due to the growing popularity of Balmoral and Royal Deeside we have found it necessary to change to a position where we will only accept coaches and groups that have been booked in advance.

It is very important to us that we ensure the level of visitors on site is comfortable for everyone and allows for the comfortable unhurried 5 star experience that we strive to provide.

If you wish to book for your group of 15 or more passenger or coach in 2020 please complete the booking form and submit. We will confirm your booking as soon as possible.

In the meantime if you have any questions or queries  regarding a group visit to Balmoral please don’t hesitate to contact us on 013397 42554 or 013397 42555 or by e-mail to

We recommend you set aside at least an hour and a half to view all that Balmoral has to offer.

During your visit your group can either wander around the grounds and gardens, following the audio tour or take a personal guided tour, which must be booked in advance.

We offer a preferential admission rate for groups of 15 or more. Payment can be made by cash or credit card.

We also operate a company voucher system - if your driver presents a voucher on company letterhead detailing the number of adults, seniors and children on board we will invoice for your visit at the end of the month.

Coach drivers are provided with a generous voucher for refreshments in the cafe and free admission to visit.
