Relax in the tranquil surroundings of Royal Deeside with a stay at No 45, where you’ll enjoy comfortable beds, delicious breakfasts and true Scottish Hospitality! We are a family run guest house peacefully situated in Ballater, in the heart of Royal Deeside in Scotland. Our guests can relax in our comfortable lounges, and enjoy a log fire in the cooler months or sit in our beautiful south facing walled garden in the summer.  


No.45 is a stunning Victorian granite house originally built in 1890, set in an acre of walled gardens at the end of a private drive. With Craigendarroch Hill to the front, the 'Old Line' (a popular and picturesque walk) to the rear and the shops and cafés of Ballater just a five minute stroll away, it is ideally located.

No.45 has many original features including a pitch pine staircase and open fires. The house is furnished in Scottish style with tartan carpets, leather sofas and a stag's head. The eight bedrooms are each decorated in individual styles with modern en-suite bathrooms, televisions, tea trays and hair-dryers. Wi-fi is available free of charge.  We also have a cosy cabin available if you prefer self catering.

During the summer months breakfast is served in the conservatory looking out over the walled garden where you can often see red squirrels in the copper beech trees. The gardens back onto one of the most popular walks in the area and a two minute stroll will take you through the woods and on to the lovely River Dee.

We hope you choose to book a stay with us and look forward to welcoming you to our home.
