Braemar Hill (traditional Chinese: 寶馬山; simplified Chinese: 宝马山; pinyin: Bǎomǎshān; Jyutping: bou2 maa5 saan1) is a hill at the south of North Point on the Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong. The hill was likely named after the Scottish village of Braemar by the British officials.

The district is largely residential. Choi Sai Woo Park is a recreational park on the hill. A private tertiary institution Hong Kong Shue Yan University along with Chinese International School and Tutor Time International Nursery & Kindergarten are located near the hilltop. Besides residential uses, this area has a lot of schools, some of which are quite well known in Hong Kong.
