We depart and make our way to
Perthshire and our hotel for the next 4 nights
stay with dinner, bed and breakfast.


We begin with a drive to Bridge of
Cally and along Strathardle to Pitlochry. The
town is rich in history and became a popular
resort following regular visits by Queen Victoria
and there are many attractive shops and tea
rooms for the visitor. We next go to Aberfeldy,
where we can obtain lunch and then we head
south along the Sma’ Glen to Crieff where we
visit the famous Glenturret Distillery, makers of
the Famous Grouse, for a tour and a wee dram,
returning later via Perth and Dunkeld.


This morning we visit Glamis
Castle, situated in the foothills of the Angus
Glens, the family home of the Earls of
Strathmore, returning later for an afternoon at
leisure in Blairgowrie.


Our day begins with a ride over the
mountains to Glen Clunie and Braemar, setting
for the Highland Games. We have a short break
here before heading along Deeside, with views
of Balmoral Castle, to Crathie. The little church
here is the place of worship for the Royal Family
when they are at Balmoral. Next we go to
Ballater where we can obtain lunch and
afterwards we retrace our steps to beautiful
Spittal of Glenshee for our final stop before
returning to the hotel.


After breakfast we continue on our way
