Blair Castle & Gardens - By Pitlochry

Without question one of Pitlochry's most popular attractions, Blair Castle and Gardens history extends to over 740 years.

The ancient seat of the Dukes and Earls of Atholl, the castle enjoys one of Scotland’s finest settings in the heart of Highland Perthshire.


At the gateway to the Grampian Mountains on the route north from Pitlochry, the location was highly strategic.

Today we can enjoy the wild beauty of the surrounding landscape, but centuries ago it was a threatebing and dangerous place.

One of the first private homes to open to the public in Scotland, Blair welcomes more visitors than any other.
