Scotland castle tour Itinerary
Next stop in our journey is Falkland Palace. You will have time to explore this 16th century palace and wander streets of the medieval village of Falkland. This village features in the television show, Outlander.
We depart St Andrews and travel to Dunnottar castle. The location of this castle is by far the most spectacular in Europe. Perched on top of a cliff on a gigantic rock outcrop, takes your breath away on the first glimpse.
We the drop you off at your chosen accommodation in Aberdeen.
In the morning we depart for Royal Deeside.
Castle Frazer is our first stop. This castle is one of the largest tower houses in Scotland. You will have time to explore and maybe you will discover quirky features such as the Laird’s Lug, hidden trapdoors, secret staircases and a spy hole.
Back on the vehicle and travel to Ballater and then onto Crathes Castle. You will have a chance to walk around this wonderful 16th-century castle, with its maze of turrets, towers, oak panels and painted ceilings.
You can also spend time in the walled garden, split into eight areas that encompass every green delight imaginable a sculpted topiary, soft herbaceous colours with modern exotic blooms. There are huge yew hedges that are thought to have been planted in 1702.
As you wonder through the rooms and halls you will marvel at the paintings and portraits by some very famous artists such as Gainsborough, Raeburn, Romney, Batoni, Lawrence and Hoppner.
You will have a chance to walk in the footsteps of our Queen and explore the wonderful gardens.
We then head for an overnight in the lovely little village of Braemar.
You can enjoy a boat ride over to the island and explore before we return and drop you off at your accommodation in Edinburgh as you end your Scotland castle tour.
