Sadly, Blair Castle Trekking Centre has closed and public riding will not longer be available. Blair Castle was one of the early pioneers of pony trekking and the Blair Castle Highland ponies were well known through their trekking and deer stalking activities. Blair was one of the centres who operated on a seasonal basis, opening in late March and operating until the ponies were required for stalking duties. This only gave four clear months where they could earn money and with the ever increasing costs and requirements associated with running a centre for such a short time, it was no longer viable. It is a sad time for Debbie who has worked for half her life with the Blair Castle Highland ponies and for many riders who annually made the trip to Blair Atholl to ride in the wonderful setting of Blair Castle.
