Balmoral Castle: The audio tour guides you through the grounds and gardens and exhibitions at Balmoral. This fascinating tour details the story of Balmoral and the workings of the Estate and is available in English, French, German and Italian. Handsets and a map of the tour are available from the Carriage Hall Exhibition.

This tour offers an insight into the real workings of the Estate and tells the stories of the Castle's most famous residents and visitors. The tour brings to life such characters as Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and the Tsar of Russia but also, to a lesser extent staff from the Estate and Royal Household.

The formal gardens, covering some three acres, also contain a range of Victorian glasshouses and the conservatory, which displays flowering pot plants throughout the year. A water garden has been formed to the West of the main garden in the trees between Garden Cottage and the West Drive.

The Estate extends to just over 50,000 acres of heather clad hills, ancient Caledonian woodland, policies and of course the beautiful River Dee is nearby.
