Private Tour to Glamis Castle and St Andrews from Aberdeen
Tour Theme: Historic and Cultural Tours
This tour starts from: Aberdeen
Duration: 1 Day - 9 hours approx.
This is a Private Tour
On our tour today we visit Glamis Castle, the childhood home of Elizabeth, the Queen Mother and the home of golf St Andrews.
We first visit Glamis Castle. This magical castle dates from the 15th century, although there has been a royal residence here since the 11th century.
This was the childhood home of Elizabeth Bowes Lyon, later to become the beloved "Queen Mum". It is still owned by the Bowes Lyon family, cousins to our Queen. A family home as well as an historic building, we tour this popular and haunted venue and listen to the story of its 600 years.
After enjoying the glories of Glamis we set off for St Andrews.
St Andrews offers so much to the visitor - the home of golf, the birthplace of Scotland's first university, an important pilgrim site of old, tales of which can be found in the ruins of the cathedral and castle. Many Royal connections are associated with this special town and who can forget that it was here that Prince William met Kate?
We have time to explore and dine in this wonderful place before heading back to Aberdeen.
