A New Prince and a Royal Wedding With the arrival of Prince Louis last week and the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle only weeks away, interest in the Royal Family has reached fever pitch. The Royals love Scotland and have close connections there. If you are thinking of taking a holiday in Scotland why not base it around two of the most famous Royal Castles, Glamis Castle and Balmoral Castle? Glamis Castle in Angus was childhood home of the much loved Queen Mother, Princess Margaret was born there and Shakespeare used it as the inspiration for Macbeth. The gardens and grounds are stunning and the castle itself is steeped in history dating back to the murder of King Malcolm II in 1034. Fifty miles from Glamis Castle is Balmoral Castle in Royal Deeside. Home of The Queen, Balmoral’s ballroom is the highlight of any visit to the castle with its wonderful art work, silver and china in addition to which there are glorious gardens and exhibitions in The Stables. The drive between Glamis and Balmoral is a treat in itself. Head north through Glenshee and keep and eye out for deer and other wild life. For the return journey take the faster A90 stopping off at town and villages on your way. Use our location map to find your perfect holiday home. #royalwedding #scotlandsgardens #glamiscastle #shakespeare #royalfamily #glenshee #balmoralcastle
