Blair Castle Celebrates 750 years -- opens for 2019 season from 30 March

Blair Castle opens its gates for the season on the 30th March 2019. We have a packed schedule for the year including our world famous Atholl Gathering on 25/26th May and our Land Rover International Horse Trials on the 22nd - 25th August. We also have 2 new very exciting events to share with you and for all special offers please visit our website at https://blair-castle.co.uk/

Blair Castle has reached the grand age of 750 years. The oldest and tallest part of the Castle known as Comynís Tower dates back to 1269. During the last 750 years the Castle has been dramatically altered and added to but the Tower has remained at its heart.

To celebrate this milestone over opening weekend 30/31st March all KIDS GO FREE into the castle and grounds.

New exhibition opens at the Castle:

We are delighted to announce our new exhibition for 2019 is of Duchess Kitty. The Duchess was married to the 8th Duke and is a fascinating character.
