    Tour Description:

    For almost 150 years, the British royal family have travelled to the River Dee for their holidays. This area encapsulates everything everyone loves about Scotland. You find grand castles enclosed by pine forests. You look up at the highest plateau in Britain in the Cairngorms National Park. And there's enough nearby distilleries to satisfy any royal event. On this tour, we combine her Majesty's favourite holiday spot with a trip to Dunnottar Castle, one of the most historically important and visually arresting sights in Scotland.

    Dunnottar Castle and Royal Deeside Tour from Aberdeen

    You travel straight from Aberdeen to one of Scotland's archetypal structures, Dunnottar Castle. It's a stunning fortress set on a cliff by the sea. It's seen more battles than you've had cups of tea and is an essential Scottish destination. Your next stop is the Falls of Feugh. These cascading falls are mesmerising; and if you're lucky, you may even spot a salmon jumping up the river. It's now time for lunch in Braemar, a lovely little village in the Cairngorms National Park with royal connections and plenty of local delicacies to try. You then head to the Muir of Dinnet Nature Reserve and get the opportunity to go for a stroll. Keep your eyes peeled for otters, birds, and adders on this quintessential woodland walk. You leave the Cairngorms National Park and arrive in Aberdeen in the early evening.
