About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Dunkeld Cathedral, 1.5 hours drive north of Edinburgh, Dunkeld Scotland

Our Central Highlands tour begins with a journey to the small town of Dunkeld in Perth and Kinross. Situated on the River Tay, its beautiful cathedral is worth a visit. Part church, part ruin, the cathedral features the tomb of the notoriously cruel 'Wolf of Badenoch'. Spend time here to explore the cathedral (free entry) and the picturesque town before we travel on to Blair Castle.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Blair Castle and Hercules Gardens, Blair Atholl Street, Blair Atholl, Pitlochry PH18 5TL Scotland

We travel further into the Central Highlands to the village of Blair Atholl in Perthshire. In the midst of the Grampian Mountains, its most famous feature is Blair Castle*, one of Scotland's stately homes and the last castle to be besieged in 1746 during the last Jacobite rising. Spend two hours in Blair Atholl, enough time to explore its castle and beautiful gardens, or simply wander the town and enjoy some lunch.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Queen's View, Pitlochry Scotland

After leaving Blair Atholl, our tour will pause for photos at Queen's View, a famous vantage point in Pitlochry with one of the most iconic panoramic views in Scotland, enjoyed by Queen Isabella and Queen Victoria.
