Aberdeen Association

Following Queen Victoria’s first visit to Deeside in 1848, a number of Aberdeenshire tradespeople found custom with the Balmoral Estate, the Monarch’s private home in Scotland. In 1871, the Aberdeen Association was formally constituted, and it joined the national Association in 1931.

Braemar Gathering 2023

The Braemar Gathering is among the most spectacular of the Highland Games and offers a diverse programme of dancing, pipe band music and athletic events.  The Aberdeen Association of Royal Warrant Holders were once again, delighted to welcome members and guests to this year’s Gathering on Saturday 2nd September.

By kind consent by the Braemar Royal Highland Society, the Aberdeen Association is allocated a hospitality marquee stance at The Gathering.  This provides the perfect location for friends of the Association to pop in for refreshments throughout the day.

In glorious autumnal sunshine, the spectacle of the Games was enjoyed by the National President of the Royal Warrant Holders Association and a full complement of Local Association Presidents from Windsor, Eton & District, Sandringham, Highgrove & Edinburgh. 

For those visiting the Braemar Gathering for the first time, the feedback is that is ‘quite unique’ & that ‘there is nothing quite like it’.  We agree, and look forward to this great Scottish event returning in 2024.
