Blair Castle

Blair Atholl, Pitlochry

Discover Blair Castle and go on a journey into the fascinating past of the Dukes and Earls of Atholl. Unique amongst Scottish castles, the story told here will take you from a visit by Mary Queen of Scots to the Civil War, and from the Jacobite cause to the disaster of Culloden, following Bonnie Prince Charlie's stay in the castle. Learn how the castle has transformed from its cold medieval beginnings to become a fine Georgian mansion, and how a visit from Queen Victoria led to the creation of Europe's only remaining private army, the Atholl Highlanders.

WWI exhibition
Discover how the Duke's 3 sons were sent off to battle and how the ballroom was transformed into a Red Cross Hospital.
