Summer Events at Blair Castle

Summer Events at Blair Castle

With the excitement of things opening up again and lockdown rules relaxing, we look forward to welcoming more visitors back to the Castle this season. Staycations are proving ever more popular this year with people keen to appreciate what is on their doorstep. Part of our desire as an estate is to evolve and encourage people to visit, this summer we have a whole host of activities to entertain the whole family.

Kerry Wilson, our Operations Manager at Blair Castle said:

‘The castle team are back in action and raring to go. It has been great being open for the past month and greeting our visitors once again, we are looking forward to a fun action-packed summer’

Head of Sales for Blair Castle and Atholl Estates, Julia Sims also commented: 

‘We are excited to launch our summer events calendar this year, with different activities to suit all audiences. With the Covid situation still fluid we wanted to make sure what events we held were outside and Covid safe. We have introduced outdoor Theatre by the Three Inch Fools, a fun way to watch their take on Shakespeare and other plays. Our family days have already been a great success and we are excited to build on these over the coming months. Our new Drive-in cinema events will be really special, with some classic films on show and the beautiful Castle as the backdrop it’s definitely one not to be missed.

Keep an eye on our events calendar as we have more in the planning!’
