All about the Scotland.

A journey through Scotland


DURATION: 10 days

PICK UP: Edinburgh Hotel

DROP OFF: Glasgow airport


From lochs to mountains, jagged peaks to rugged coastlines, tundra plateaus to deep forests, Scotland speaks for itself. Its history is enviable, its culture unique, and all this is still evident today from the countless castles left to show for it to the local folk music which still rings loud in pubs and inns.

On this tour, we will make our way around Scotland from Edinburgh to the northeast coast and Inverness, off west to the Isle of Skye and back down to Glasgow stopping along the way to explore castles, the Cairngorms, Loch Ness and so much more. Not to mention a trip along the Jacobite Steam Train cutting straight through the western Highlands and whisky tasting in some of the oldest distilleries.

Scotland has shaken off its old reputation for deep-fried food and unsmiling service and can now compete with the best in Europe. New-found respect for top-quality local produce means that you can feast on fresh seafood mere hours after it was caught, beef and venison that was raised just a few miles away from your table, and vegetables that were grown in your hotel’s own organic garden.
