This is a PRIVATE BESPOKE TOUR to Balmoral Castle. Join us on this wonderful Scottish tour to Balmoral Castle.

Balmoral castle tour, we will be heading over the Tay Bridge and arriving in the city of Dundee. We will have time to admire the stunningly impressive building that is the V&A Dundee.

This is home to some of Scotland’s most brilliant creatives and is a showpiece of our talent for design, both current and historic, and how our design talent has made its mark within Scotland and throughout the rest of the world.

From here we will head onwards to Blairgowrie one of the largest towns in Perthshire, sitting to the north of the city of Perth on the banks of the River Ericht. This handsome market town was once known for its trade in flax and these days is known best for fruit growing activity (mainly raspberries).

Our tour reaches Balmoral Castle

We will then move further north over the Spittal of Glenshee where you will pass through the Glenshee Ski area and on to Balmoral. We will set aside at least one and a half hours for your visit to Balmoral. This will give you time to visit the grounds, gardens, exhibitions and shop.

Onward from Balmoral, we will visit Braemar, situated in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. This lovely village is surrounded by stunning mountain scenery, beautiful glens and home to the ancient Braemar Gathering tradition. Known colloquially as The Games and originating from those believed to have been held by Malcolm III, annual Highland Games Gathering is held at Braemar in September and is traditionally attended by the British Royal Family.

This completes our fine day out in Royal Deeside heritage mixed with a twist of design exploration at the Dundee V&A.
