A safari tour at Balmoral . . .

Accompany one of our guides on a fascinating safari tour of Balmoral Estate. The safari tour takes you through the manicured parkland and gardens in front of Balmoral Castle. You then travel through the Estate farm to enter the old Caledonian Pine Forest. This is one of the country's most important habitats and home to the elusive capercaillie.

The safari tours last approximately three hours and cost £60 per person.

If weather conditions are suitable they will also be available on weekdays in late October, November and early December.
