Decade of success celebrated at Braemar Castle
What: Braemar Highland Fling. Where: Braemar Castle and grounds in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. Who: Local people and visitors to Royal Deeside attended the event. Why: The day celebrated 10 years of successful community operation of Braemar Castle. Ten years on from the community taking over the failing visitor attraction, visitor numbers have tripled and half a million pounds has been raised to repair the roof and chimney. As well as a celebration, the event was a fundraiser for the next stage, involving repairs to the exterior. Donations can be made at Crowdfunding, Braemar Castle.
