Blair Castle

Blair Castle, Pitlochry, Perthshire

Built from 1269, Blair Castle is the ancestral home of the Clan Murray. Historically it was the seat of the Dukes of Athol, though the present 12th Duke of Athol, Bruce Murray, lives in South Africa. Queen Victoria and Prince Alfred were guests here in 1844, when they gave their permission to establish the Athol Highlanders Regiment. Today, the castle and grounds are open to the public.
