Tour Group on Day Trip 

Day coach trip with the Oddfellows group from Edinburgh on the 26th July 2019.

The day trip started at 9am on a bright sunny morning in Edinburgh. I picked the 'Oddfellows' group up in our luxury standard 'TURAS' coach (as seen in photo). The party settled into the comforts of the coach and on this beautiful sunny day looked forward to the day ahead. We preceded to head out of Edinburgh and onto the A9 road, heading North over the famous Forth Road Bridge and into the Kingdom of Fife.

At around 10am we arrived at our destination, the historic Drummond Castle & Gardens in Perthshire. Time for a quick photoshoot by the coach and then onto the tour.

The Tour:

The castle is known for its gardens, described by Historic Environment Scotland as "the best example of formal terraced gardens in Scotland." It is situated in Muthill parish, 4 kilometres south of Crieff. More information can be seen by visiting their website at

The group had a private tour which they had pre-booked prior to the visit. It is advisable to pre-book for groups as coach parking is limited and a special entrance is used.

At the end of the tour of the Castle and gardens the group had some free time to do some exploring on their own before getting back on the coach. 

We then headed for lunch at the 'Barley Bree' restaurant, a short drive away, in Muthill.

After a splendid 3 course lunch the group headed back onto the coach and back to Edinburgh in the early evening.

Everyone on the Coach expressed their delight at the day long Coach Tour and the quality of the Executive Coach provided by JSB Executive Travel.
