an excellent homely warm establishment serving home made food, regularly used by locals and visitors alike, not always possible to get a table, which says it all

Many thanks for taking the time to review your recent visit to the Bothy. It has been very busy during this holiday period, so being able to have a wander round our adjacent Outdoor Store while waiting for a table to come free is sometimes necessary! I'm glad that you enjoyed your visit and that the wait was worth it! We'll look forward to welcoming you back to the Bothy in the future.

During our short 4 day trip to ballater we were actually in here nearly every day! The full Scottish breakfast was big and filling and I really enjoyed it and thought it was reasonably priced for such a touristy area. The soup was lovely too and my boyfriend enjoyed his panini which again was large and well priced! Recommend.

This is owned by the same pea pole who own the one in Braemar. Again staff are freindly, nothing is to much trouble. They also give you free water. There is only on street parking but not far way is a large free car park.
