Scotland Guided Tour

Edinburgh Castle, ScotlandEdinburgh Castle, Scotland

Planning a Trip to Scotland? Do you dream of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, Edinburgh Castle, the sound of the bagpipes and a wee dram of the finest Scottish whisky by a crackling log fire? Then why not join me on a luxurious, 14 day small group tour of Scotland next year? Stay in unique Scottish lodgings including Castles, Manor houses and even an enchanting Loch Side Inn on the Isle of Skye. See all of the main sights, spectacular scenery and lots of Scotland's Hidden Gems without having to worry about any of the details or route planning. Learn about Scotland's history and culture and experience it for yourself on a Highland Cow farm experience or don your tartan for our Jacobite themed dinner, take a turn on the dance floor with the Highland dancers and listen to the Piper while he toasts the Haggis! Follow the Outlander Trail to Falkland, Culloden and the Clava Cairns. See the Glenfinnan Viaduct made famous by the Harry Potter movie and keep your eyes peeled for a glimpse on the Loch Ness monster....

We will have a visit to the Gordon Highlanders, the best regiment in the world for over 200 years and you will get to meet and greet some pedigree Highland cows and calves on a working farm in Banchory close to Balmoral and the late Queen Elizabeth's own fold of Highland cows. Depending on opening times we will also visit Balmoral if possible and thereafter visit Braemar, the highest village in the Cairngorms, where she also attended the Highland games. You will get to see the most amazing scenery and even stay in a very special castle hotel at the head of beautiful Glenshiel....

We will also be visiting Blair Atholl, with its own private army and enjoy a very special whisky and chocolate pairing/tasting at Dalwhinnie, the highest distillery in Scotland. We will be spending two nights near Inverness with a good chance of seeing the Northern Lights at that time of year if we are lucky?A visit to Culloden Battlefield is also included as are the Clava Cairns, both must see sights if you have been watching the Outlander series on TV and no trip to Scotland would be complete without having a look out for the Loch Ness monster or taking a photo of Eilean Donan which must be the most photographed castle in Scotland...
