Prince Charles has opened his own pop-up shop and royal restaurant and pop-up shop in the Scottish village as part of his flood recovery efforts in Ballater
Charles and Camilla, known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, have opened the pop-up shop and restaurant while visiting flood-hit Ballater in Aberdeenshire.
The venture, known as the Rothesay Rooms, will not only attract visitors to the area, but also provide young people with restaurant training opportunities.
The "pop-up" initiative has breathed new life into a derelict former co-op and is part of Charles' Ballater Flood Appeal, which since being launched in January has raised over €170,000.
More than 300 homes and 60 businesses in the village were devastated when the River Dee overflowed in December.
Prince Charles said the idea was put to him by a local butcher, who thought it might be a good step forward.
"There has been a lot of effort in the last six months or so since the disastrous floods that did so much damage to poor old Ballater," Prince Charles said.
"(I hope) this particular restaurant and shop will help to give a little boost to Ballater, particularly in the off-season."
