Aberfeldy & Whisky Tour
Lying on the shores of Scotland’s longest river, the River Tay, Aberfeldy has spectacular views of the Falls of Moness and is home to the Aberfeldy Distillery. As it would be rude not to stop whilst we are passing, we thought we’d take a Distillery Tour with a tasting in the whisky lounge.
Loch Tummel & Blair Castle – Queen Victoria’s favourite!
Discover Loch Tummel and Blair Atholl, where we’ll pay a visit to Blair Castle (you may have seen it recently on ‘Victoria’. Queen Victoria visited Blair Castle many times over her reign and clearly loved being in Scotland. The Castle still houses items of furniture and other personal belongings of Victoria which were here during her time staying in Blair Atholl. We finish the outing on a royal note with a stop at ‘Queens View’ at the head of Loch Tummel, the classic and much photographed viewpoint where Queen Victoria picnicked in 1866.
Aviemore & A Ride on The Strathspey Steam Railway
The Strathspey Steam Railway We travel to Aviemore for a ride on the Strathspey Railway, a heritage steam railway that runs for 10 miles across heather-covered moorland with the Cairngorm Mountains behind. We depart Pitlochry this morning and head for the hills. We board the train at Aviemore Station, and travel on to Boat of Garten, also known as the ‘Osprey Village’ before heading on to Broomhill Station, or ‘Glenbogle’ as fans of the popular BBC series Monarch of the Glen will know it! As we travel over moorland, forest and past great sweeps of the River Spey, the Cairngorm Mountains provide a backdrop to the scene which, together with the hot oil, smoke and steam form the ingredients of a grand day out.
