Looking for Castles That Conduct Late Afternoon/Evening Tours (Summer 2020)

... if there is such a thing.

My friends and I will be staying in the Grantown area, and most of our midday->afternoon activities will be outdoors, paddling.

Is there a site that might keep any kind of searchable database to make the hunt easier?

Thanks for looking.

    Hey @MaryB, I think your best bet would be to have a look at the castles you want to visit and then have a look at their websites etc.  Unless @Horizons or @travelswithakilt can tell you any different?

    Hi @MaryB - certainly worth checking out Craggan Outdoors for those kind of activities up that way. As for castle tours, many of the castles in the Cairngorms are un-staffed ruins but the stately home- style castles would run tours up to the late afternoon I'd suggest. Many of this style are owned by the National Trust for Scotland so worth checking out their site for tour times. Brodie to the north is a good shout but if you are really keen on seeing lots of castles then Aberdeenshire has a much bigger concentration - Craigievar, Crathes, Drum and Fraser may all be of interest. Have fun!
