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.

  1. Day 1 Welcome to Edinburgh

    We meet at 14.30 at the hotel in Edinburgh. We start our trip with an afternoon exploring the ancient city centre of Edinburgh, capital of Scotland. The tour takes us through the heart of the city, into St Giles Cathedral founded in 1124 and along the Royal Mile, which stretches from Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament. One of the most charming aspects of Edinburgh are the little alleys and hidden courts which give the city a distinctly medieval feel.

    Don’t worry we won’t be serving you Haggis on your first night, a delicious meal awaits you!

    MEALS INCLUDED: Dinner

  2. Day 2 Edinburgh Castle

    Our day starts on a high note with a visit to Edinburgh Castle. Edinburgh Castle is one of the oldest fortified places in Europe. With a long rich history as a royal residence, military garrison, prison and fortress, it is alive with many exciting tales. When you climb Castle Hill, you will walk in the footsteps of soldiers, kings and queens – and even the odd pirate or two.

    After our first Pub meal, in a cosy ancient building in the heart of the city we continue our day with a visit to the Tartan Weaving Mill, not far from the castle down the Royal Mile. The Tartan Weaving Mill is the only fully working commercial mill in the city and has one of the highest quality ranges of cashmere and lambswool products in Scotland . Here we will have the chance to watch tartan being woven on high speed powerlooms.

    MEALS INCLUDED: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  3. Day 3 Cheese Dairy, Dundee on the Water and Blair Castle Pitlochry

    As we leave Edinburgh to drive northeast into the beautiful district of Fife, our first excitement, especially for engineers is the Queensferry crossing and the view of three Forth bridges crossing the Firth estuary, truly a wonder of the modern world. On a clear day, we can stop to take some great photographs.

    Then we sit back and enjoy the scenery of the small coastal resort towns on our way to 14th century Kellie castle where Medieval meets Victorian when it was saved from ruin Sir Robert Lorimer, famous artistic and eccentric architect! A local dairy here makes wonderful artisan cheeses! We travel through St Andrews and the Cairngorms National Park and stop to visit Blair Castle on the outskirts of Pitlochry, home of the Atholl family for over seven centuries. The castle has a diverse history and has been adapted over 700 years to suit the needs of the family and style of the day. Home to politicians, soldiers, agriculturalists, and entrepreneurs, the family history is set against a backdrop of fine 18th century interiors and Scottish baronial architecture. Not to mention the splendid grounds where we will have the chance to see Hercules’ Garden and Diana’s Grove.

    Tonight’s resting point will be in a splendid Inn in Inverness, and dinner in a local pub will be accompanied by traditional Scottish folk music.

    MEALS INCLUDED: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  4. Day 4 Dufftown Distilleries and Inverness

    Today we head out to the burgh of Dufftown, ‘The Whisky Capital of the World’. Here, located along the River Fidddich we will have the chance to go for a walk and along the way visit a couple of local distillery and taste traditional Scottish malt whisky.

    After lunch you will be able to enjoy a free afternoon to explore the charming city of Inverness.

    MEALS INCLUDED: Breakfast, Lunch

  5. Day 5 Loch Ness

    The mysterious waters of Loch Ness are world famous. Legend has it that a serpentine beast, the Loch Ness Monster, lurks beneath its surface. As we explore the loch onboard a boat cruise and keep our eyes out for Nessie we will be surrounded by breath-taking scenery of the Highlands, mysterious castles and mighty waterfalls. We will have the chance to see and maybe explore the ruins of the historic Urguhart castle located on the shores of the lake.

    This afternoon we will be making our way over to the Isle of Skye, to the town of Portree where we will be staying.

    MEALS INCLUDED: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  6. Day 6 Isle of Skye

    It’s time to take a hike. Today we head up to the north of Skye and will get the chance to enjoy some of the most breathtaking scenery yet.

    A pleasant walk will take us up to see one of the most iconic images of Scotland: The Old man of Storr and its rugged rocks set against the backdrop of rolling green hills and the coastline of the Isle of Skye.

    After a picnic lunch or pub meal, weather depending, we will head just so slightly further north and walk out to Brothers Point, and see the Kilt Rock and Mealt waterfalls, where water gushes off the cliffs and drops down into the sea far below.

    MEALS INCLUDED: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  7. Day 7 The Harry Potter train, Fort William and Glencoe

    We leave Portree and the Isle of Skye behind us and make our way to Armadale, from where we will catch the ferry which will take us from Skye to Mallaig in the Western Highlands. Mallaig is a bustling fishing port and prides itself on its fresh seafood and traditionally smoked kippers.

    From here after lunch we board the famous  Jacobite steam train, famous in the filmed Harry Potter series, and journey through the Scottish Highlands to Fort William at the foot of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the United Kingdom. Time permitting we may also take a short walk to see Neptune’s Staircase Locks (8 total) on the Caledonian Canal, the longest in the U.K.!

  8. Day 8 Loch Lomond and Queen Elizabeth’s Forest

    Today we start back on our way South, with our destination for the end of the day being Glasgow, a vibrant and bustling city.

    On our way we stop to explore and take a walk on the edge of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs national park, the largest in Scotland. Defined by its sparkling lochs, rolling hills, pine and birch forests, crumpled hills and sleepy forests – a great and scenic day out.

    In the afternoon we will arrive in Glasgow where we will be staying for the next two nights.

    MEALS INCLUDED: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
