Tour Scotland Video Old Photographs Of Braemar

Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Braemar, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The village is situated in the Scottish Highlands at the upper end of the historic Earldom of Mar or literally the Braes o' Mar. King Malcolm III with his first Queen came to the area in around 1059, and according to legend held a great gathering at the original settlement of Doldencha, situated under the present day graveyard. These days an annual Highland Games Gathering is held at Braemar on the first Saturday in September and is traditionally attended by the British Royal Family who visit from nearby Balmoral Castle
