This Royal retreat is set amongst the beautiful scenery of Royal Deeside. The castle is built on a site of 50,000 acres which features picturesque heather clad hills, the Caledonian woodlands and the River Dee.

 
The castle was purchased by Queen Elizabeth in 1848 and has been the Scottish home of the Royal Family ever since. In fact the grounds are closed to the public between August and October as the Royal Family are in residence.
 
The grounds as mentioned are vast and there is plenty to explore and do. 150 years of careful stewardship has preserved the wonderful wildlife. Popular activities on site include guided walks, runs, salmon fishing and there is even a luxury safari where you can get up close to some of the local animals.
 
Make sure to include Balmoral in your plan and see what Queen Victoria meant when she described it as “my dear paradise in the highlands”.
