Royal Deeside

Aberdeen Maritime Museum


01/09/2014 - 25/10/2014

Queen Victoria exulted in her love for her Highland home at Balmoral and her connections there were very personal.

Victoria’s influence drew others to Deeside, from the wealthy seeking their own Highland estates to tourists and daytrippers escaping the city to explore the landscape. This exhibition explores the popular image of Royal Deeside encouraged by Victoria and her published journals, whilst also looking at the lives of ordinary people at work and play on Deeside.
