Run Balmoral Supporters

Travel and Car Parking - 18 April 2013


There will be in the region of 8,000 people attending the event on the Saturday so please allow plenty of time for your journey and please be patient with other road users.

Remember it takes at least 20 minutes to walk from the car parks to the event start, so once again allow plenty of time.

All the features in the Balmoral Estate are open, at no charge, on the Saturday so why not take advantage of this offer and enjoy the exhibitions and of course the magnificent scenery that makes this event so unique.


In response to suggestions made by a number of people last year, we are offering an early leavers / castle visitors car park.  This is for people wishing to leave the grounds before 2.00 p.m. (e.g. families who may have come along only for the children’s races).

Car Park No 6 will be used for this purpose and it is situated opposite Crathie School on the east side of the A93.

Travelling east from Aberdeen the access to this car park is on the left just before the entrance to the Tourist Information Centre.  Please ensure you signal left in plenty of time to advise the police of your intentions. 

Travelling west from Braemar the access is first right after the junction with the B976. Please do not indicate right until you have passed this junction.  Once off the A93 please follow the signs and directions from the stewards.

There are 400 spaces in this car park and these will be allocated on a first come basis. Please only use this car park if you intend leaving early.

For all other car parking areas, please follow the instructions of the event stewards and police.
