5.0 ⭐     14 customer reviews

Your first castle visit is to Doune Castle, which has been featured in “Game of Thrones” and “Outlander” …

Your excursion begins from your hotel at 2:30 PM. Embark on a comprehensive tour of Glasgow, where you'll witness iconic locations such as George Square, Kelvingrove Park, the cathedral, and the university—all of which have been showcased in the well-loved TV series "Outlander." Socialize with your group over a welcome drink before indulging in a delightful dinner at your hotel.

Explore Stirling Castle, an impressive fortress with historical ties as the childhood residence of numerous Scottish monarchs, including Mary, Queen of Scots. Afterward, savor a whisky tasting experience at Glengoyne Distillery, delving into its two centuries of whisky craftsmanship. Conclude your day in Glasgow, where you'll have the freedom to explore and dine at your leisure.

Venture into the stunning Highlands, traveling alongside Loch Lomond, across Rannoch Moor, and through Glencoe, renowned as one of Scotland's most breathtaking and picturesque locations. Pause for photo opportunities along the way before proceeding to the enchanting Eilean Donan Castle. Finally, reach your hotel situated on the shores of Loch Alsh.

Discover the Isle of Skye and delve into the tales of Bonnie Prince Charlie. Journey to Dunvegan Castle, Scotland's oldest continuously inhabited castle, and marvel at the scenic Trotternish Peninsula on your way to Kilt Rock—a majestic 200-foot-high sea cliff adorned with towering vertical basalt columns. Explore Kilmuir Graveyard, where Flora MacDonald's grave is located, and enjoy some free time in the charming town of Portree.

Capture memorable moments at the scenic remains of Urquhart Castle, formerly Scotland's largest, and enjoy a cruise on Loch Ness. Then, witness breathtaking mountain scenery as you travel along the Cairngorms National Park's border to your next stop: a farm where you'll witness a demonstration of skilled sheepdogs showcasing their abilities while working with the farmer to herd their flock. Conclude your day with dinner at your hotel.

Explore the Culloden Battlefield Visitor Centre to learn about the defeat of Bonnie Prince Charlie's army by British government forces, marking the conclusion of the Jacobite Rising. Continue your journey to Aberdeenshire, where you'll visit Fyvie Castle, Garden, and Estate. Immerse yourself in the castle's 800 years of history and admire an exceptional collection of art, arms, and armor amassed by a local individual who achieved wealth in the American steel industry. Conclude your day with a luxurious dinner at your manor-house hotel in Aberdeen.

Explore Aberdeenshire Highland Cattle and meet a farmer who raises Highland cows. Get up close to these well-known, gentle, and long-haired creatures for a chance to photograph them. Afterwards, visit Drum Castle, Garden, and Estate, where you can marvel at the imposing medieval tower and the impressive Victorian library. Head back to your hotel for a group dinner.

Explore Dundee, historically recognized as the city of "jute, jam, and journalism" for its local industries. Today, it stands as a cultural hub and the UK's inaugural UNESCO City of Design. Enjoy some leisure time to discover the revitalized waterfront, featuring remarkable architecture, museums, and even an urban beach. Continue your journey to St Andrews, renowned as the birthplace of golf and steeped in medieval heritage. Take a panoramic drive and have the opportunity to explore the city on your own before heading to your hotel near Edinburgh. The evening is yours to dine at your leisure.

In Edinburgh, observe the striking contrast between the medieval townhouses lining the Royal Mile in the heart of the Old Town and the Georgian mansions of the 200-year-old New Town. Explore the remarkable Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official Scottish residence of the King, and wander through its lavishly furnished chambers. Afterwards, visit Edinburgh Castle to view the Scottish Crown Jewels and take in panoramic views of the city. Conclude your stay with a Scottish evening featuring a farewell dinner and traditional entertainment. For departures between July 25 and August 15, attendees can enjoy the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
