Braemar Hill, named after a Scottish village, is mainly a residential area between North Point and Quarry Bay in Hong Kong Island. Part of the hill is within the Tai Tam Country Park (Quarry Bay Extension), near Wilson Trail Stage 2 and Hong Kong Trail Stage 5.

It is considered as an upper-class neighborhood area since 1960s. Near the hilltop, there are lots of well-known schools, mansions, courts and gardens, such as Hong Kong Shue Yan University, St. Joan of Arc Secondary School and Choi Sai Woo Park.

Hikers can get a panorama view of the Hong Kong Island and Victoria Harbor from some lookout at Braemar Hill. It is also a good place to watch fireworks at HK festivals, such as New Year’s Eve, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Establishment Day (July 1) and China National Day (Oct 1).
