About Us




On July 10 and 11 2021 we launched our fantastic new publication “The Jacobites and Upper Deeside” researched and written by Braemar Local History Group member Maureen Kelly. The booklet costs £7 but in the UK (including postage is £9 and overseas is £13) It’s a fantastic read full of colourful characters and information about one of the most significant periods of Scottish history. Please order a copy and support Braemar!
