This tour explores all things royal in the Scottish Capital with visits to the official royal residence in Scotland, the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the magnificently imposing Edinburgh Castle. Heading out of the city we visit Stirling Castle, which before the union with England was one of the most used of the Scottish royal residences with many Kings and Queens having been born, crowned and died here. We also visit Scone Palace which, during its history has been the seat of parliaments as well as also being a crowning place of the Kings of Scots. Our delve into Scottish traditions would not be complete without a little education on the national tipple, Scotch Whisky to which we rectify with a visit to the Scotch Whisky Experience.
