This evening, I am posting information on Balmoral Castle, a popular visitor attraction situated about 50 miles/80 km west of Aberdeen in the Scottish Highlands. Other popular visitor sites in the area include the small town of Braemar, Braemar Castle, Crathie Kirk and Royal Lochnagar Distillery.
This morning, we departed our Birnam lodgings and progressed as follows:
To Braemar in the Grampian Region of Northern Scotland for a brief stop and then east, past Braemar Castle, tracking the River Dee to the Royal Lochnagar Distillery which was awarded a Royal warrant by Queen Victoria. At Royal Lochnagar the group was provided with a tour of the distillery and a sample of the 12 year old malt.
