OPTION 1 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Full day tour visiting: Blair Atholl Castle and Edradour Distillery.
Blair Castle, the ancient
seat of the Dukes and Earls of Atholl. The castle enjoys one
of Scotland’s finest settings in the heart of Highland
With its roots in the 13th century, Blair Castle’s history
extends over some 740 years, during which time it has welcomed
countless generations of visitors. At the gateway to the Grampian
Mountains on the route north to Inverness, the location was
highly strategic. Today we can enjoy the wild beauty of the
surrounding landscape but centuries ago it was a threatening
and dangerous place.
Edradour whisky is produced in Scotland's smallest distillery
- and is hand made today as it was over 150 years ago by just
three men who are devoted to the time-honoured methods of
whisky making. Indeed equipment used at the distillery has
remained unchanged since the day the distillery opened and
is only just capable of producing commercial quantities. Only
12 casks of whisky are produced a week, making Edradour single
malt a rare pleasure for a fortunate few.
Then travel to Cairngorm Mountain – Evening
Event including dinner in the Ptarmigan Restaurant.
En route to Loch Morlich the coach will stop at House of Bruar
to give delegate the chance to visit the Falls of Bruar, browse
round the retail outlet or have a tea/coffee break.
Loch Morlich Water Sports
Situated at the foot of the Cairngorm, Loch Morlich is situated
right at the heart of the National Park. This beautiful location
provides an ideal site for you to enjoy a wide range of activities
The centre has single kayaks and the larger Canadian style
open canoes which take two or three persons. Loch Morlich
and the burn, which runs into the loch, are ideal places to
enjoy this sport.
The centre has a fleet of Laser Picos, Toppers and Optimists.
The different boats in our fleet offer a range of performance
to suit all ages and abilities.
Stable boards and a full range of specially reduced adult
and junior sails. This ensures that the maximum time is spent
on the board and not in the water. An introduction on the
sandy beach quickly leads to being afloat.
Loch Morlich Watersports also offers the following 'Dry Option'
There are changing facilities at the water sports centre.
Fully qualified instructors are on hand at all times.
to Cairngorm Mountain – Evening Event
including dinner in the Ptarmigan Restaurant.
Evening event in the Cairngorm Mountain
Event will include dinner in the Ptarmigan Restaurant and
a presentation by Dr Catherine Morduant entitled "CairnGorms:
landscape and Ecology". Eight miles south east of Aviemore
and high on the northern flank of Cairn Gorm lies the CairnGorm
railway runs for two kilometers through the Cairngorm ski
area. In doing so it climbs 460m to the Ptarmigan top station,
150m below the summit of the mountain. The Cairngorm plateau,
mostly above 4,000ft in height, is one of the most rare and
fragile environments in Scotland.
Cairn Gorm's northern corries of Coire Cas and Coire na Ciste
have been the location for extensive ski-related development
since the opening of the White Lady chairlift here on 23 December

Architecture, towns and building are some of man's most expensive
activities, and have always been powerfully symbolic and towns,
buildings and architecture reveal much about the priorities,
culture, politics and living conditions of the past. Professor
McKean current research varies from Scottish culture during
the Renaissance to a re-examination of the 'British' agenda
of Scotland in the later eighteenth /early nineteenth century.
His teaching focuses on the interaction between towns, architecture
and history, with Scotland as a focus but with comparisons
taken from Europe and America. and to examine the evolution
of Scottish architecture. Before joining the University of
Dundee as Professor of Scottish Architectural History, Professor
McKean was the Chief Executive to the Royal Incorporation
of Architects in Scotland.
