The St Margaret’s Project aims to establish an internationally-renowned performance and arts venue in the heart of the beautiful Cairngorms National Park.
We want to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of Braemar and Royal Deeside.
But we also want to attract a huge range of high-quality events and performances.
St Margaret’s, the masterpiece of renowned Scottish architect Sir John Ninian Comper, is a glorious and nationally-significant Victorian gem. Its regeneration, in tandem with many other exciting local projects, will help enhance Braemar even further as a place for visitors to enjoy and as a place to live and work.
