Welcome to the Auld Kirk website.


We are excited to announce that the Auld Kirk will be embarking on a new venture in early June 2017.  As our passion for artisan food has refused to go away we will be launching a new licensed coffee lounge occupying our former restaurant and bar areas. This will be a much simpler and more rustic offering than our former Spirit Restaurant.  We want to create as informal and relaxed space for customer to enjoy a small but daily changing offering of sweet and savoury pastries, fresh baked rolls, cakes and desserts.  All made in house and ready to serve.  We will be open during the day from Monday to Saturday but closed in the evening and on Sundays.  There is an outside seating area available so the dog can come too.  We hope that you will find this to be the perfect place for a coffee and a quick snack, a light lunch or a lazy afternoon with tea and cake or a glass or wine.


We are now able to offer our former letting bedrooms to health practitioners, well being/beauty therapists or hair stylists wishing to base their business here at the Kirk.  We hope that within the next few months we will have a range of therapists, treatments and services being offered from the rooms on the first floor.

These rooms will be available to self employed therapists and practitioners on a full-time, part-time or sessional basis.  So if you are looking for a safe, comfortable and affordable practice space, based in a beautiful historic building then do get in touch.


The re-appointment of our first floor rooms means that we are no longer able to offer guest accommodation at the Kirk.  We would like to thank our former guests for their custom over the past years and we hope that our regular visitors to Ballater will call in a see us in the new coffee lounge.  We will be open at 9am so even though you can no longer stay here, we can still serve you a breakfast of a different type.

Our web site is currently being developed so please revisit for updates on what is happening at the Auld Kirk.
