Group Visits

We pride ourselves on the dedicated service that we offer to group organisers and the travel trade from enquiry to departure. As the first private home in Scotland to open to the public in 1936, we have a wealth of experience welcoming individuals and larger groups through our doors.

Whether you’d prefer to explore the castle at your own pace, receive an introduction on arrival or take a fully guided tour, we have a range of options available to suit your requirements.

Castle Tours

Guided tours are available at no extra cost for groups of 12 or more. Advanced bookings will receive a dedicated guide however we cannot guarantee a guide for bookings at short notice. Guided tours last about 50 minutes or can be tailored to suit your timeframe. We recommend you allocate at least 90 minutes for a visit to Blair Castle and Gardens.

Languages and Guidebooks

As well as English, tours are usually available in other languages by prior arrangement. Room notes are provided in English, German, French, Italian, Russian, Dutch, Japanese and Swedish. Fully illustrated guidebooks are available in English (£4.95).

Drivers and Couriers

Drivers, Couriers and Tour Guides receive complimentary admission and two vouchers are issued for use in the restaurant and gift shop. Account facilities are available on request by prior arrangement.

Parking and Drop off Point

The free car park has space for 200 cars and 20 coaches. Visitors can be dropped off/picked up in the car park, located within 100 yards of the castle.
