Itinerary for the trip

  • Day 1: Edinburgh: Royal Mile
    Travel by high-speed train from London King's Cross station to Edinburgh. On arrival, enjoy a walking tour that includes the Royal Mile and other Scottish gems. During your free time take the opportunity to visit the Scotch Whiskey Heritage Centre and the Palace of Holyrood House, or to climb up Arthur's Seat.

    Overnight and evening at your leisure in Scotland's historic capital Edinburgh. Your guide will point you in the right direction to find the best of Edinburgh's nightlife!

  • Day 2: Scottish Highlands
    Departing Edinburgh by coach, we stop at the atmospheric Doune Castle majestically poised on the banks of the River Teith. We then admire the craggy mountain landscape of Glencoe and Rannach Moor. The day ends with a photo-stop at Loch Ness, where you can start your own search party for Nessie, the infamous Loch Ness monster.

    Overnight at Fort Augustus.
  • Day 3: Scottish Highlands and Edinburgh
    On the final day of your tour, we go to the site of the last highland charge, Culloden Moor, where you will visit Culloden Battlefield. Then it's on to Pitlochry, set under the dramatic skyline of Ben Vrackie. The final Highland visit will be the Hermitage – Birnam Wood in Shakespeare's Macbeth. We will take a wooded walk with waterfalls and leaping salmon before returning to Edinburgh, and then taking the train back to London.
