I've got a thing in the Cairngorms this weekend and we have to leave the motors in or close to Braemar for a couple of days.
Any ideas folks?
Leave it in my mother in laws garage and ask her to run you out to braemar - she's terribly nice, if a bit talkative!
Serious answer - not sure about parking round braemar - vague memories of decent parking to be had, but couldn't tell you exact directions, sorry.
If you're an NTS member, parking is free at Linn of Dee. There's also a big free carpark at Inverey if you're heading towards Carn Bhac' etc.
There's some parking behind the shopping mall in Braemar, may be a bit less obtrusive than the big carpark. I parked there when staying in the bunkhouse recently. I don't recall any "residents only" signs.
A couple of days? Is the Hungry Highlander's menu that extensive?
Trouble no one about their religion;
respect others in their view and demand that they respect yours.
I think LoD is free and the fee is "voluntary". Parked there twice for overnighters before even spotting the machines - wondered why the Ranger was scowling.

ptc parking at Linn of Dee is a £2 donation to the upkeep of the paths in Upper Deeside.
You mentioned close to Braemar so I'm wondering if it is Braemar itself you are thinking about. There is a public car park (free) beside the toilet block in the centre of Braemar. A new Police Station has been constructed nearby so you car shoulkd be safe if the Police Office is manned but I'm not aware of cars in Braemar being broken into although obviously you are better to hide everything in the boot.
Further west between Braemar and the Linn of Dee is the newly upgraded car park at Inerey. It is free and there is no problem with leaving cars there. This car park is used by Munro Baggers heading for the Munros at the head of Glen Ey.
Car park at Keiloch is good, but it costs £2. Very handy for the Stuc (Lochnagar) and Beinn Avon.
If heading for Beinn a' Bhuiridh, Linn of Quoich car park is (I think) quite safe and as of this time last year it was still free. Lovely setting too.
