Dunrobin Castle: Come along on a tour of Dunrobin Castle, the most northerly and one of the oldest continuously inhabited great houses in Scotland. Standing amidst lush, formal gardens that overlook the sea, this white stone chateau is a stunning contrast to the typical dark stone Scottish castles. Upon arrival, you will explore the castle’s main rooms and learn about its rich history, dating back to the early 1300s. Stroll through Dunrobin Castle Gardens, designed in the grand French style to echo the architecture of Dunrobin Castle. Take in the beauty of the gardens and enjoy the stunning views of the surrounding landscape. Your visit to Dunrobin would not be complete without experiencing the ancient art of falconry. The castle’s professional resident Falconer will demonstrate and explain the different hunting methods used by owls, hawks, and falcons in a series of fascinating aerobatic displays. Falconry was originally developed as a means of hunting fast or difficult prey as food for the table.
