A stunning, exclusive-use, luxury Highland estate, where exceptional hospitality is complemented by a remarkable setting and where the atmosphere is always private, warm and welcoming. Moreover, you can experience a transfer through some of Scotland’s beautiful countryside into the Cairngorm National Park.

Candacraig is the home to unique adventure holidays that will let that spirit of excitement thrive. Take to the hills and hear the engine roar behind the wheel of an awesome 4×4 or drive yourself over the thick packed snow of the Cairngorms as you rush down the mountain on skis or board.

Candacraig offers an unrivalled base for adventure, from kayaking roaring mountain streams to exhilarating winter sports, adrenaline-fuelled off-road adventures on four wheels to sensational hikes on foot.  These are the adventurous moments and we also offer romantic, mindful, creative and gastronome experiences at Candacraig, to ensure they are your most memorable.

Scone Palace has an exciting and colourful history as one of Scotland’s most important stately homes.  It has been the seat of parliaments and the crowning place of the Kings of Scots, including Macbeth and Robert The Bruce. The Palace houses an outstanding collection of antiques, paintings and rare artefacts and the grounds are renowned throughout the world, making the stately home one of the most popular tourist attractions in both Perth and Scotland.

Poised above the River Tay in Perthshire, Scone Palace overlooks the routes north to the Highlands and east through Strathmore to the coast. The Grampian mountains form a distant backdrop, and across the river stands the city of Perth.  This is a wonderful property in which to enjoy the culture and history of Scotland or salmon fishing on the River Tay.  In the evening arrange a Scottish dinner in the formal Palace State dining room welcomed by your very own Piper.

With over 100 acres of historic Parklands, the natural environment provides a stunning backdrop so join us and Visit the Crowning Place of the King of Scots.

You can find the above castles as part of the Susan Reid Collection which offers stunning properties located all over Scotland, from beautiful scenic Loch Lomond and Loch Tay to historical St Andrews right up to the wonderful Scottish Highlands.
