They spent about an hour on the campus where the Duchess spent most of her time speaking to young members of the Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and watched a demonstration by members of the Muthill scouts as they made Scottish pancakes.

William met with representatives of Scottish Air Ambulance and looked at one of their helicopters.

The couple (known as the Earl and Countess of Strathearn when in Scotland) rounded off their first visit by opening a reconstruction of a timber circle, known as the Pittentian Timber Circle, which was excavated in 2011 during the construction of the Beauly to Denny power line. Few of these sires have been excavated, thus making it an important archaeological find.

The couple officially opened the recently renovated Famous Grouse Experience visitor attraction before sampling various whiskeys at the bar in what the Duke noted turned out to be “a very liquid lunch”.
