We drive to Aberfeldy where our mode of transport will change as we step on board Land Rovers for our Highland Safari. Experience breath-taking scenery at nearly 3000 feet, the award winning ranger led safari includes hot drinks, whisky dram and Highland shortbread. Armed with cameras and binoculars we journey to the high tops through a land sculptured by the elements and steeped in history, culture, nature and breath-taking views. There will be no shortage of photo opportunities and you may be lucky enough to see majestic red deer, the Famous Grouse, the elusive Mountain Hare or the soaring Golden Eagle as you travel through forests, mountains and moors on private hill tracks.

A morning visit to Blair Castle, the ancient seat of the Dukes and Earls of Atholl that enjoys one of Scotland's finest settings. The castle has been transformed through the ages from its medieval beginnings to a fine Georgian mansion and finally a Victorian castle in a grand the baronial style. Next we see the stunning 'Queens View' at the head of Loch Tummel, a famous vantage point that looks out over one of the most iconic panoramas in Scotland, visited by Queen Victoria in 1866. In the afternoon we visit Pitlochry where you can browse around the centre or maybe take a walk to see the town's Hydro Electric Dam and its famous Salmon Ladder.
