In collaboration with the Duchess of Cornwall’s Reading Room, the inaugural Braemar Literary Festival is set to be a fantastic weekend for lovers of literature.

Sessions featuring Scottish writers such as Ian Rankin and Jackie Kay will feature, as well as ‘Poem & A Pint’ workshops, where roving poets Shane Strachan and Mae Diansangu will entertain customers in local bars and cafes.

You’ll also be able to enjoy tours to Robert Louis Stevenson’s house, map making activities and Word Walks, combining the picturesque surroundings of Braemar with creative writing sessions.


Guests staying at The Fife Arms during the Literary Festival will enjoy two nights inclusive of breakfast and dinner, including a specially curated three-course festival launch dinner cooked by Chef Angela Hartnett OBE.
