Our View

Blair Castle is at the heart of Atholl Estates set among glorious Highland scenery. The castle has been the ancient seat of the Dukes and Earls of Atholl for almost 740 years and is home to the Atholl Highlanders, Europe's only remaining private army. 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
