Loch Lomond

This is a scenic tour that takes in beautiful Loch Lomond and the conservation village of Luss before heading for one of the following:

  • Aberfoyle and over the Duke’s Pass to the heart of The Trossachs, made famous by Sir Walter Scott, and a favourite of Queen Victoria’s
  • A visit to Stirling Castle that takes us back to Scotland in the early Middle Ages and to heroes like William Wallace and King Robert the Bruce
  • A distillery tour – choose from Glengoyne, Deanston or Auchentoshan
  • A visit to Inveraray Castle, the ancestral seat of the Duke of Argyll and Chief of Clan Campbell - free time in the town of Inveraray

Falkirk & Stirling

The Falkirk tour takes us past the 2nd century Roman Antonine Wall to Falkirk’s iconic canal boat-lift the Falkirk Wheel and then on to The Helix park and Andy Scott’s world-famous horse-head sculptures The Kelpies.

This tour can be combined with an optional boat trip or a visit to the Battle of Bannockburn centre, Wallace Monument, Stirling Castle or a distillery.

Ayrshire

This tour takes us south following the Ayrshire coast to the Burns Museum complex, which honours the short life of Scotland’s much-loved National Bard, Robert Burns. The tour continues to Culzean Castle, with its Robert Adams interiors, magnificent circular staircase, Eisenhower suite and extensive grounds.

Culross

A delightful small town on the shores of the River Forth, Culross is the most complete example in Scotland of a Royal Burgh from the 17th and 18th centuries. It is home to its very own abbey ruins and medieval palace, and with its cobbled streets and painted houses is full of history. The town features in the American TV series Outlander.

Rosslyn Chapel & Peebles

Visit Rosslyn Chapel, learn about its history, and marvel at the intricate carvings that cover the inside of the building, and may well have inspired the chapel’s inclusion in Dan Brown’s book, The Da Vinci Code.

Continue to Peebles, where you have free time to explore this former market town on the banks of the River Tweed.

Scottish Borders Tour

Our tour takes us south of Edinburgh to the Scottish Borders, with options to visit one of the four 12th century abbeys founded in this part of the country in the reign of King David I and/or Abbotsford, the home of Sir Walter Scott.

Scottish Highlands Tour

This tour takes us along Loch Lomond, Scotland’s longest loch, and into the Highlands, where we travel through Glencoe, one of the most atmospheric of Scotland’s glens and scene of the famous Massacre of Glencoe in 1692. We continue along Loch Linnhe to Oban, with free time to explore this lovely coastal town.
