Scotland is famous the world over for its castles, legends and whisky and we have put them all together on this four day tour around the Grampian Mountains. Visit historic castles, fortresses, battlefields and beautiful gardens before enjoying the fine Victorian Dallas Dhu Distillery. You will witness the completely preserved time capsule of the distiller's craft and then enjoy a dram (or two) of Scotch Whisky.
From: 01 Apr 2013 - To: 30 Sep 2013
Arrive at the hotel and settle in. Explore the locality before enjoying dinner in the restaurant and your first overnight stay.
Firstly visit Urquhart Castle, an atmospheric ruin overlooking the dark waters of Loch Ness. Once one of Scotland’s largest castles, Urquhart’s remains include a tower house that commands splendid views of the famous loch and Great Glen. Next, drive to the Culloden Battlefield Visitor Centre before travelling on to the vast garrison fortress of Fort George, the mightiest artillery fortification in Britain. It remains virtually unaltered today and still serves as an important military base. Return to your hotel for your overnight stay.
Follow the whisky trail to Dallas Dhu Distillery to sample outstanding malt Scotch whisky and see the craft behind the famous drink. Don’t drink too much as you need to drive to the fine 16th-century Brodie Castle and Gardens. The castle is packed with art and antiques, including fine French furniture, English, continental and Chinese porcelain, and a major collection of paintings, including 17th-century Dutch art, 19th-century English watercolours, as well as Scottish artists and early 20th-century works. From here head to the ruined splendour of Elgin Cathedral before returning to your hotel for your overnight stay.
Today, travel north to Huntly Castle. Set in the green heart of the Aberdeenshire countryside, Huntly is a noble ruin in a beautiful setting, remarkable both for the quality of its architecture and for its eventful history. Finally, let your journey conclude at the unusual Corgarff Castle, a medieval tower house, built in the mid-16th century, surrounded by a distinctive star-shaped perimeter wall. Begin your journey home or continue your stay with another tour.
