You’ll find Blair Castle in the traditional Scottish village of Blair Atholl at the entrance to the Cairngorms National Park.
Surrounded by hills and peaceful countryside, the castle has some of Scotland’s finest views. The castle has been transformed through the ages, from its cold medieval beginnings to become a fine Georgian mansion and finally a Victorian castle in the Baronial style.
All of these influences can be seen today on a castle tour.
Beginning of April to end of October.
Open Days: Monday – Sunday.
Times: 10am – 5.00pm (last entry 4pm).
Please note: The information on the Historic Houses website is advisory, but please always check the website of the house or garden you intend to visit before travelling.

Blair Castle was a favorite place for Queen Victoria to visit, she gave the Atholl Highland army the right to bear arms on one of her visits and it remains the last private army in Europe.
