Full Day Private Tour of Dunottar and Crathes Casltes
Meet your private guide-driver and start a full-day tour to explore Scotland's Castle Country. Today you visit two very different castles - Dunottar and Crathes. The first stop is at the seaside town of Stonehaven to explore Dunnottar Castle. This iconic castle sits on a rocky outcrop glaring out to the North Sea. It is one of our most photographed castles & was the backdrop of the film "Hamlet". Together with the driver-guide you visit the castle and learn its story. Continue to the town for a coffee break and take a stroll along the pebble beach, boardwalk and take in the picturesque harbor. Continue to the second castle of the day - Crathes, which is a 16th-century castle. It was a family home for nearly 400 years and over the centuries it evolved from a defensive structure to a sumptuous home. Following a lunch break you get to visit the castle and see it from the inside, and its gardens. During the trip, you also have a stop at the Falls of Feugh for tea and traditional scones. There is a chance to see salmon battling against the torrents of water attempting to return to their spawning grounds after 7 years at sea.
