Your Tour Details
Day 1. Walking tour of Edinburgh.
Tour the official residence of Her Majesty The Queen, the Palace of Holyroodhouse. The Palace was once the home of Mary, Queen of Scots and was the setting for many dramatic episodes in her short life.
Enjoy a walking tour of the famous Royal Mile with your guide - cobbled streets, tiny shops, mysteries and the stories of Scotland’s great figures of literature.
Tour Edinburgh Castle, dominating Edinburgh’s skyline and giving stunning views across the city and countryside. Home to the Scottish Crown Jewels, the legendary Stone of Destiny and Mons Meg, a giant cannon.
Leave the Old Town and explore the New Town.
Day 2. Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.
Perched high and proud on impressive cliffs, Stirling Castle has played a key role in Scottish history; the battles of Stirling Bridge and Bannockburn were fought within its shadow and Mary Queen of Scots lived here as child.
Made up of mountains, forests, rivers and lochs, the Trossachs National Park is a miniature version of the Highlands with historic connections to Rob Roy. The Corbetts mountains are between 2,500 and 3,000 feet, break the horizon in a zigzag manner.
Overnight: Fort William
Day 3. Glen Nevis & Glen Coe, Blair Castle and Whisky Distillery.
Home of the Earls of Atholl since the 13th century, Blair Castle is situated in a beautiful wooded valley. The 30 state rooms contain a unique collection of furniture and armoury. The Cummings Tower is the oldest and tallest part of the castle, making it a historic landmark.
In the afternoon, Visit Edradour Distillery. The surviving farmhouse distillery opened in 1825 and is the smallest distillery in Scotland. With everything made by hand, the distillery produced eighteen casks a week.
