Campsite location

If you're a fan of the TV series Victoria you'll definitely recognise Blair Castle. An episode of the second series of the royal drama, starring Jenna Coleman, was filmed at this stunning Highland location a couple of years ago.


About the campsite

And it's fitting, because Queen Victoria was a regular visitor here with Prince Albert, including one of their great expeditions from Balmoral, accompanied by several ponies to carry their packs, two bagpipers and the ghillie, John Brown.

This picturesque park is at the entrance to the Cairngorms National Park in the village of Blair Atholl. The site is easily accessed from the A9 trunk road, and with views over Blair Castle and the Highlands, this is a Scottish gem.

The site actually forms part of the historic grounds of Blair Castle and Gardens and is surrounded by the national park. Campers have access to roam into the many miles of estate land beyond the site. It is also home to Segway Ecosse, providing fun tours around the estate on Segways.

Other activities on offer locally include horse riding, fishing, Land Rover safaris and Ranger Activities including treasure hunts and wildlife watching.

The modern reception building houses a shop and a games room, there are five heated toilet/shower blocks, a putting green, children's playground, mini football pitch and putting green, and even a hair and beauty room. Guests also enjoy a discounted entry price to the castle.
