Glamis vs Blair Castle- Choose One Please

Traveling from Edinburgh to Ballater by private car. Would like to stop off at something of interest along the way. Which would you choose- Glamis or Blair Castles? Traveling party is all adults.

They are very different places. As I recall it Glamis has more of a sense of being a home. Blair is more of a typical castle / stately home, if you know what I mean.

Blair Castle is not " on the way" from Edinburgh to Ballater. Neither is Glamis, both will require " a bit of a detour". My vote would go for Blair although Glamis is also beautiful....difficult choice!

I'd plump for Glamis - not quite so far off your route if you are heading up via Blairgowrie and then through wonderful Glenshee to Braemar (lovely village) and then Ballater.

It is a magnificent castle - one of my favourites of the real 'biggies' - superb inside and out and those gardens.....
