Showcasing some of Scotland's finest scenery, Royal Deeside lies in the heart of the U.K.'s northernmost country. Balmoral Castle--a summer home of the Royal Family built for Queen Victoria in 1855--remains the centerpiece of the region that earned it its royal prefix. The picturesque village of Ballater charms visitors with its Victorian center and also serves as a great home base for hill walking--same as Braemar, which lies close to the Scotland's largest ski resort Glenshee. Teaming with salmon, River Dee offers world-class fishing. A trip to Royal Deeside offers plenty of exciting options for a weekend getaway or relaxing holiday. Royal Deeside is in United Kingdom.
