Blair Atholl and the Central Highlands

Departing Edinburgh, 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. 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. 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. Afterwards, our Central Highlands Tour continues past Loch Tay to the Falls of Dochart; a beautiful waterfall that flows through the Highland town of Killin. We spend time here enjoying the atmospheric scenery before a short photo stop at Loch Lubnaig and onwards to the town of Callander. Callander lies immediately south of the Highland boundary fault and is historically a meeting point between the Highlands and Lowlands. Take time to explore the Gateway to the Highlands and enjoy some refreshments before we make our journey home to Edinburgh, where our Central Highlands tour ends.
