Day 4 Wednesday, 17 July – Depart hotel after breakfast.

Blair Castle, Blair Atholl, Perthshire

This morning visit to Blair castle. Discover 750 years of Scottish history. Blair Castle is the ancestral home of Clan Murray and was historically the seat of their chief, the Duke of Athol. The castle stands in Glen Garry and commands a strategic position on the main route (now the A9 road) through the central Scottish Highlands.

We experience the fun and very beautiful castle with a very exciting park characterised by large conifers from North America plus a beautiful walled garden with many perennials, an extensive wooded grove, a ruined kirk (church), a red deer park and a gothic folly.

Continue north via Cairngorms National Park en route to Inverness. The national park stretches all the way to Balmoral to the east and south almost to Perth. It contains one of the highest continuous mountain areas in the UK, rich in bird and wildlife. In addition, rare alpine plants are often found in the harsh and often windswept landscape.

Overnight: River Ness Hotel, Inverness (B, D)

Day 5 Thursday, 18 July – Depart hotel after breakfast.

The Mackintosh memorial stone is situated at Culloden Battlefield, near Inverness.

Travel to Loch Ness for a scenic cruise and visit to Urquhart Castle, once Scotland’s largest castle

Next stop the infamous moorland, Culloden, East of Inverness, where in April 1746 a highly trained and well-equipped English force killed almost 2,000 Scottish Jacobites from the Highlands. Many clans had joined forces in this last great rebellion but could not cope at all in the very unequal battle. Within just over an hour it was all settled – and the following weeks the Scots were hunted in the Highlands. After that, clans, kilts and traditions were banned for many decades.

We experience the moors themselves, where flags mark the individual groups, and inside the museum we see both uniforms, weapons and a number of tableaux. For many Scots, it was then and later a sly defeat, which is why all Scottish schoolchildren come to visit here.

Overnight: River Ness Hotel, Inverness (B)
