Perthshire castles and whisky tours

Peek back into history and recapture, if only momentarily, the events of the past in a part of Scotland which captivated the historic figures who made Scotland great. Some suggestions include:

  • Home of a Clan Chief at Castle Menzies, by Aberfeldy, where Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed on his way to the Battle of Culloden;

  • Two and a half centuries of military history at the BlackWatch Museum;

  • The childhood home of the Queen Mother at GlamisCastle

  • The island castle on Loch Leven where Mary, Queen of Scots was imprisoned for almost a year before her dramatic escape;

  • The Church where John Knox fuelled the fire of the Reformation at St. John'sKirk in Perth;

  • Walk to the stunning waterfalls that inspired Robert Burns' poem; "The Birks O' Aberfeldy".

  • Oldest existing library in Scotland (Innerpeffray, near Crieff), founded by Lord Madderty in 1680.

  • Queen's View, one of the most famous views in Scotland across Loch Tummel to Schiehallion. Queen Victoria took tea here in 1866, but the viewpoint actually commemorates Queen Isabel, first wife of Robert the Bruce.

  • The fairy-tale white BlairCastle, protected by the last and only private army in Europe;

  • The magnificent SconePalace, where Kings of Scots including Robert the Bruce, were crowned - many atop the fabled Stone of Destiny.

  • Listen for the footsteps of "My Lady Greensleeves" who is reputed to haunt Huntingtower Castle where Mary, Queen of Scots visited in 1565 while on her honeymoon with Darnley.
