Ballater Walking Festival 2024 – Evening Programme

The Albert Hall and Victoria Hall are both opposite the Station in Station Square. The Glenaden Hotel is on the Church Green next to the Indian restaurant.   Ballater Golf Club is at the end of Victoria Road (AB35 5QX). 

Take your BWF badge with you as many of the local businesses are offering discounts. The Hilton Grand Vacations Club at the Craigendarroch are happy to offer you access to the Leisure facilities during this week at a cost of £15.00 per person per day, or alternatively you can purchase a week’s pass for £40.00, on production of the Ballater Walking Festival badge.

Packed lunch service.  Sue Rutherford, a local cook, will again be rustling up a tasty meal for the welcome reception on 18th May… Following the popularity of her packed lunch service last year, she will again be offering to make and deliver delicious packed lunches on the morning of your walk. These need to be pre-ordered and collected from your meeting point before your walk.

Email Sue at and she will send you menus.
