What’s on offer?

For those of you who have always wanted to discovery the myths, traditions and rugged landscapes of Scotland, you’re in luck. With Brightwater, you’re in expert hands as not only are we based in the country, but we have also visited a total of 35 Scottish Islands between us. The trips we’ve put together showcase the very best of scenic Scotland, from its castles and archaeological sites, to its whisky distilleries and abundant wildlife. Experience the fiery annual Up Helly Aa festival in Shetland, glide across the iconic Glenfinnan Viaduct aboard a classic steam train or gaze in awe at the 5,000-year-old Standing Stones of Callanish – the choice is yours.

If England’s rich history, gloriously manicured gardens and stately homes enchant you, why not fly over and join us at the legendary RHS Chelsea Flower Show? Or, perhaps, you’d like to follow in royal footsteps on a visit to HRH The Prince of Wales’ country home of Highgrove.

Elsewhere, we have memorable holidays on offer that can take you from the evocative remains of Pompeii in Italy to Monet’s gardens in France, and even to Japan's bamboo forests…

For the more adventurous sun-seekers among us, we also have a very special brand new tour that will take you to the gorgeous Spice Island – Grenada. This magnificent Caribbean destination will allow you to join popular Brightwater guide Trevor Edwards on visits to stunning private gardens in the company of their owners and on excursions to a water-propelled run distillery, a fully-working historic plantation and bird-watching area. Endemic wildlife, landscapes fragrant with ginger and nutmeg, and the charms of island life await.

Only in 2020:

If you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime kind of trip to take in the new year, we have just the thing with two very special holidays that you can only experience in 2020. The first is the World Association of Flower Arranging’s showpiece event, which takes place once every three years. In 2020, it will be held in the vibrant Indian city of Jaipur and we can take you there. Our nine-day itinerary will treat you to two full days at the WAFA event, but it will also take you to the Taj Mahal, the Amber Fort, the stunning Lodi Gardens and even to the Maharajah’s City Palace, which Is still used by Jaipur’s royal family today.

Or, grab the chance to witness the Oberammergau Passion Play in Bavaria, which takes place just once per decade. 2020 will mark the 42nd performance and it started back in 1634 after villagers vowed to recreate the story of Christ’s life, death and resurrection if they were spared the deadly plague. Along with sitting down to watch this iconic performance, you’ll also ride the historic Zillertal Steam Railway, explore the delights of Salzburg and pay a visit to Emperor Maximillian I’s Golden Roof.
