Ballater, Crathie Kirk & Balmoral Castle Guided Tour – Wednesday 17th April

Includes on board tour guide!

Join your dedicated tour guide on board our executive coach. Sit back, relax and enjoy light refreshments as we travel north through picturesque Perthshire and towards the Cairngorms National Park.

We pass the Spittal of Glenshee and Braemar and continue on towards Royal Deeside and the Victorian village of Ballater. This village achieved lasting fame as the nearest settlement to Balmoral Castle, Highland home to HRH Queen Elizabeth II.

Following some free time in Ballater, we travel to Crathie Kirk. This church has been a place of worship for Queen Victoria and every British monarch since. Queen Victoria laid the foundation stone of the present church in 1893, she donated stain glass windows that are still there today and her personal attendant, John Brown is buried in the graveyard.

We then travel to Balmoral Castle; the Scottish home of the Royal Family since it was purchased for Queen Victoria by Prince Albert in 1852. The Castle is an example of Scots Baronial architecture and is classified by Historic Scotland as a category A listed building. Plug in your audio tour guide handset and enjoy access to both the formal and vegetable gardens, the exhibitions in the stable area and the largest room in the Castle, the Ballroom. Browse the gift shop and enjoy refreshments in the coffee shop before we head home to Fife.
