Rotary Club logo

The Rotary Club of Aboyne and Upper Deeside serves the Mid and Upper Deeside region to the East of the Grampian Highlands of Scotland. Known throughout the world for its Royal connections since Queen Victoria purchased Balmoral Castle, the area is one of outstanding natural beauty and is well worth a visit.

What is Rotary International?

Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) is the association of Rotary clubs within England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. RIBI has over 1,800 clubs consisting of more than 50,000 men and women from all walks of life.

Our clubs are based in local communities where members meet on a regular basis to enjoy friendship, networking and to plan projects that will benefit the lives of others. Clubs utilise the skills, expertise and dedication of their members to help improve the lives of people in communities both at home and abroad.

Rotary members unite at home and across the globe to put our experience and knowledge to work tackling our most pressing challenges. We focus our efforts in six areas: promoting peace, preventing diseases, providing access to clean water and sanitation, enhancing maternal and child health, improving basic education and literacy, and helping communities develop.


Meetings are held weekly, at 6.30 for 7.00pm, at the following locations:

Loch Kinord Hotel, Dinnet  on the first and third Mondays.

Glen Lui Hotel, Ballater on the second and fourth Mondays.

Visiting Rotarians are more than welcome at either venue.
