Royal Deeside : Photography
Royal Deeside is a place of wonder, intrigue, community spirit and great beauty. From Aberdeen to Braemar there are many tranquil villages and constantly changing scenery including low land, rivers and trees to great glens, lochs and majestic mountain ranges.
For decades travelers, locals and professional photographers alike have without rest clicked those shutters to bring us all some of the magic of our area. In the Victorian era a fine collection of photographs was compiled by George Washington Wilson. This collection is now maintained by Aberdeen University. Because of the many visitors to Royal Deeside there were until mid 20th Century numerous local photographers who would take holiday portraits and picture for postcards. Royalty were also a favorite topic and there are many photographs of members of the royal family arriving at Ballater Station on route to Balmoral Castle. Now, the process is even more special for it is possible take part in a photography course held at Balmoral.
