This tour is only available 1st April to 31st October
We collect you from your hotel at 8.30am. Our Perthshire forest and Castles tour takes us to the Highland boundary fault line. Our first stop is the historic Scone Palace near the city of Perth, where all Scotland’s Kings were crowned from the 9th to 17th century. Sadly the Stone of Destiny, or coronation stone, was removed from Scone when Edward the 1st invaded Scotland in 1296. It remained in England for 700 years then returned to Scotland on loan by Her Majesty the Queen and is now displayed in Edinburgh Castle.
Our next stop is the picturesque Victorian village of Pitlochry. Nestled in beautiful green woodland on the banks of the river Tummel, it’s a great place for lunch and a spot of shopping. We then head to one of Scotland’s great view points, The Queen’s View. Enjoy breathtaking views over Loch Tummel with a magnificent mountain backdrop.
Our final stop is Blair Castle. Ancestral home of Clan Murray and current seat to the Duke of Atholl. The earliest part of the castle dates from 1269 and had many additions until it’s final makeover in 1870.
