Blair Castle Trekking
The Blair Castle Trekking Centre is set in the grounds of the Castle itself, adjacent to the Deer Park. The Centre has been running since the 1950's, when the 10th Duke of Atholl decided to find summer employment for the ponies used to carry stags and grouse off the hill during the sporting season.
The Centre is approved by the Trekking and Riding Society of Scotland (TRSS), and all the staff are qualified, friendly and familiar with Atholl Estates. The Centre is open every day from April until mid September, except Saturdays which are the ponies' rest days. Group bookings can be accommodated on a Saturday by special arrangement.

Our trekking and learning centre is situated in the heart of Scotland, close to the shores of Loch Tay in Highland Perthshire, just over the bridge from the picturesque village of Kenmore. The Stables are part of the family owned 120 acre Mains of Taymouth Estate, nestled in magnificent countryside with some of the most spectacular views and scenery in Scotland - a fabulous place to come horse riding!
