You'll have the opportunity to visit Balmoral Castle and grounds (home of the Royal Family when in Scotland) or another amazing castle on route. We can also visit the Royal Lochnagar Distillery and Crathie Kirk attended by the Royal family when in residence at Balmoral. On route we travel through some beautiful scenery and visit the Highland towns of Aboyne, Banchory, Ballater and Braemar (The latter being the place of the Royal Highland Gathering every September). Our Journey takes us over the mountains and through one of the five ski areas in Scotland. Opportunity to have a picnic lunch in the grounds of one of the castles or perhaps a nice lunch somewhere on route. Whatever you decide, we are sure you will have an amazing day!
