Blair Castle Blair CastleBlair Castle stands out by the limestone-white walls and can be seen in the distance while driving on the A9. The oldest part of the castle dates back to 1269, but there has been a lot added and rebuild later on. The castle is open to the public between April and October. We passed by in March, too early to come close to the castle. The duke of Blair Castle is the only Brittish subject who is allowed to have a private army, The Atholl Highlanders. The duke got this privilege from queen Victoria when she stayed at the castle in 1844. This estate has a very nice Gate Lodge.
More information and pictures on the official website of the castle.
