Blair Castle is at the heart of Atholl Estates set among glorious Highland scenery.

There are 30 rooms open to visitors, as well as historic gardens and grounds which include a magnificent walled garden, a peaceful wooded grove, a ruined Celtic kirk, a red deer park and a whimsical Gothic folly. Children will also enjoy the castle's woodland adventure playground. Highland Games in May, Horse Trials and Country Fair in August. Photo credit: main image - Stephen Farthing
