One of the most exciting factors about the United Kingdom is undoubtedly its rich history layered with royalty, which still fascinates many tourists. Auchterarder, a small town in Perth and Kinross, is a place that allows visitors to explore many castles and palaces. Its own Auchterarder Castle, now standing in ruins, was used as a hunting lodge by Malcolm III in the 1000s. Only a minuscule part of it remains to this day. Auchterarder is known as Lang Taun or Long Town, as it’s stretched out along a single main road. The places of note here are Blackford village, which has a famous distillery, and Gleaneagles Hotel, which boasts three championship golf courses, a spa and the only 2-Michelin-starred restaurant in Scotland.
