When is this event?
It was with great sadness that we had to cancel our Atholl Highlanders Weekend earlier on in May this year, we will be holding the Atholl Highlander’s Parade on Saturday 9th of October 2021 for visitors to attend.
The Atholl Highlanders are the only remaining private army in Europe and act as the personal bodyguard to the Duke of Atholl, who is Chief of Clan Murray. Whilst they don’t have any military role, they are armed with Lee Metford rifles and include a pipe band. Please note that the last entry to Blair Castle will be at 1 pm.
