A Grand Tour of Scotland
This tour is designed for anyone with the desire to travel the length and breadth of Scotland, and who wants to get a real taste of all the beauty and diversity that fair Caledonia has to offer. From Edinburgh we head north along the ‘backbone’ of Scotland to Speyside; north and west to Ullapool on the wild yet wonderful west coast; south to Fort William and Oban for more West Highland magic, and back through the historic heartlands of Stirlingshire to the capital.
Among the highlights are an exclusive whisky tasting at the home of The Glenlivet in Speyside: boat trips to the remote Summer Isles and on romantic Loch Lomond; a highly scenic journey by steam train over the Glenfinnan Viaduct to Mallaig; and a classic excursion from Oban that takes in the islands of Mull, Staffa and Iona. We also enjoy visits to historic castles including Stirling, Cawdor, Eilean Donan and Blair, along with Mary Queen of Scots’ childhood home of Falkland Palace. There are further royal connections on our optional excursion, which includes visits to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, Her Majesty The Queen’s official residence in Scotland, and mighty Edinburgh Castle, home to the Scottish Crown Jewels.
