The Bothy is on Bridge Street in Ballater and is a grand spot before or after a day exploring Royal Deeside. They have a welcoming log burner for chilly days and or you can sit outside if it’s sunny. To set you up for the day choose a full Scottish breakfast which includes eggs, bacon, sausage and black pudding or hash browns. They have a wide range of sandwiches for lunch, their most popular being a brie, cranberry and bacon panini. To go with this are soups freshly made on the premises: sweet potato and ginger or parsnip and pear are typical. The array of home-bakes to accompany your tea or coffee are hard to refuse and include white chocolate blondies and carrot cake.
