Explore the power and majesty of Scotland’s castles on this tour from Edinburgh to the Highlands. You will visit Scotland’s most impressive castles, tower forts, and palaces. And you even get a chance to take a boat trip and visit Scotland’s highest whiskey distillery. On this tour, you’ll join the ranks of esteemed history lovers while you travel over sea, loch, and glen.
You will feel like a lord or lady as you wander through castles and manor houses. Stride ancient battlefields like a sword-wielding Highlander. And relive Scotland’s history-defining moments of conceit and treachery as you listen to your driver-guide’s epic tales.
Places you'll explore:
Falkland Palace - The palace was the countryside home for many of the Stuart royalty. They would make use of the woodland areas in the vicinity to hunt.
Royal Deeside - The Royal family’s beloved stunning hill land area of the northeast.
Brodie Castle & Culloden - A 16th-century mansion that belonged to the Brodie Clan until 1980. And Culloden moor is the resting place of those lost in the final land battle to have taken place in Great Britain.
Dalwhinnie Distillery - The distillery that pairs delicious whiskey with chocolate.
Loch Leven & Castle - Loch Leven Castle is the famous prison fort to Mary Queen of Scots.
A home can mean different things to different people. In the Lake District, they can be cottages lined up along little lanes, surrounded by beautiful mountains, and never too far from a swim in a lake.
Whereas in Scotland, castles were some people’s homes. These stone fortifications could contain dozens of families and pose as both a war weapon and a wedding venue. On this trip, we take you exploring through quintessential British landscapes to some of these unique buildings.
You see the town halls and squares by the Lake District’s famous waters. You see Gothic spires overlooking the cobbled lanes of Edinburgh. And you see castles clinging to dramatic cliffs by the sea.
And maybe by the end of the tour, you’ll have found that little place you’d dream of moving into one day.
This trip teaches you that small is beautiful. You take the train from Manchester to the little Lake District. The quaint walled lanes here appear too tiny to be good for anything but beautiful photographs.
After the Lake District, you venture to Edinburgh. This city feels more like a bustling old country town than a capital of a European country. And finally, you visit Arran. They call this ‘Scotland in Miniature’ because you’ll find everything everyone loves about Scotland squeezed into this wee island.
So, if you like picturesque towns, hidden gems, and the little local things, join this tour and discover the Lake District, Edinburgh, and Arran.
