This tour takes us through some of the most stunning and dramatic landscapes of Scotland. We head north to the charming village of Blair Atholl, where we find Blair Castle nestled in the secluded Perthshire countryside. The castle is the ancestral home to Clan Murray and the historical seat of the Dukes of Atholl. We then skirt around the western edge of the Cairngorms National Park to our Speyside hotel. From here we have a compilation of castles on our itinerary including the privately owned Ballindalloch Castle, château-style Dunrobin Castle and blush-coloured Brodie Castle. The highlight of the tour is our visit to Cawdor Castle, immortalised in William Shakespeare’s Macbeth as the scene of Duncan's murder. We are delighted to be joined here by Lady Cawdor for a private drinks reception when we will find out what life in the castle is really like. Our final visit is to Scone Palace, which during its history has been the seat of parliaments as well as the crowning place of the Kings of Scots. Here we will be joined by Head Gardener (and ‘Beechgrove Garden’ presenter) Brian Cunningham for a private guided tour of the gardens followed by lunch.

Tour highlights:

  • Meet and Greet with Lady Cawdor at Cawdor Castle
  • Lunch and Guided tour of the Gardens at Scone Palace with Brian Cunningham*
  • Visits to Blair Castle, Ballindalloch Castle, Brodie Castle and Dunrobin Castle and Scone Palace
