Tour Scotland video of photographs of Blair Castle on visit to Blair Atholl, Highland Perthshire. This Scottish castle is the ancestral home of the Clan Murray, and was historically the seat of their chief, the Duke of Atholl. The castle stands in Glen Garry, and commands a strategic position on the main route through the central Scottish Highlands.

Balvaird Castle Perthshire Scotland [01:06]
Tour Scotland video of photographs of Balvaird Castle on visit to Perthshire. A fine and complete example of a traditional late medieval Scottish tower house, built around the year 1500 for Sir Andrew Murray, a younger son of the family of Murray of Tullibardine. He acquired the lands of Balvaird in Perthshire through marriage to the heiress Margaret Barclay, a member of a wealthy family. It is likely that Balvaird Castle was built on the site of an earlier Barclay family castle. Substantial remnants of earthwork fortifications around the Castle may survive from earlier defences. A small selection of my personal photographs shot on small group tours of Scotland.
