About This Deal

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Drummond Gardens, 2 miles south of Crieff on the Muthill Road (A822) Drummond Castle, Crieff PH7 4HZ Scotland

Located deep in Perthshire, Drummond Castle is a 15th century keep with a 17th century mansion house extension, set into 12 acres of formal terraced gardens. The Castle has seen a lot of history and is connected to Oliver Cromwell and The Jacobite cause, eventually being seized as a government asset. Today the house is private but the claimed gardens are considered to be the best example of their kind in Scotland and well worth a visit.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Dunblane Cathedral, The Cross, Dunblane FK15 0AQ Scotland

The Cathedral at Dunblane dates back over 1,000 years and is one of the best examples of a Medieval place of worship in Scotland. The tower dates from the 1100’s and the chancel in the 1400’s. During the religious reformation lead by John Knox, Dunblane Cathedral was stripped of its furnishings and fell into disrepair until it was fully restored in the 1800’s.
