Blair Castle
photo by Jenni Douglas

The ancient seat of the Dukes and Earls of Atholl, with roots in the 13th century, Blair Castle is one of the first private home that opened its doors to visitors. Today it welcomes more visitors than any other private house in Scotland. It's a great destination for people who want to find out more about Scotland's history and it's also a day of fun.

The castle is outstanding, and there are 30 exceptionally rooms to explore, with unique furbishing and art pieces. The tour ends with the visitor center, which is home to a shop and several restaurants.
