Highlights of Edinburgh (3 Nights)
Upon arrival in Edinburgh, the world-famous capital of Scotland, you will embark on a half-day, guided tour and soon see that this city offers everything you would want in a historic city — Royal Palace of Holyrood House, its narrow medieval streets, and Georgian squares, as well as more modern offerings, such as cutting-edge arts, trendy bars, and enticing restaurants. This friendly city — and the Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh, The Caledonian — will be your home for your first three nights, immersing you in a truly cosmopolitan environment, but with a noticeably Scottish flavour. Rested and ready, your next day will include a tour of the Royal Yacht Britannia where you can discover what life was like on board The Queen’s floating Royal residence; visit Edinburgh Castle, home to the Scottish Crown Jewels and St. Margaret’s Chapel; and a traditional Scottish dinner show. On your final day, you will cross the Forth Railway Bridge to embark upon a tour of St. Andrews, including St. Andrews Cathedral and Castle.
Highlights of Inverness (2 Nights)
Crowned by a castle and adorned with exquisite colourful flowers, the vibrant city of Inverness sits astride the River Ness at the northern end of the Great Glen. This city resides in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, making it — and Culloden House — an excellent base for exploring the exceptionally scenic surrounds. From Balmoral Castle, which has been the Scottish home of the Royal Family since it was purchased for Queen Victoria by Prince Albert in 1852, Inverness Castle in all of its pink sandstone glory, and the Ness River walk, to the Glenfiddich Distillery with its tall copper tuns and stone-walled warehouses filled with earthy, aged aromas, the immensely significant Culloden Battlefield and the fairy tale Castle of Crawford, you will get a glimpse into — and a taste of — the rich history of Scotland.
Highlights of Inverlochy (2 Nights)
You will head into western Scotland into the Scottish Highlands to explore some of the most famous and scenic attractions during your two-night stay in the area. When you are not relaxing in the magical environs of your accommodations, you will have the opportunity to go in search for the Loch Ness Monster as you cruise along the stunning Loch Ness, explore the wonders of Urquhart Castle, and savour the flavours of some of the finest Scotch whiskeys at Ben Nevis Distillery. The world-famous Jacobite Steam Train – one of the great railway journeys of the world – will whisk you through 84-miles of stunning scenery (and tight turns) from Fort William to Mallaig where you will have time to enjoy some traditional fish and chips.
Highlights of Loch Lomond (2 Nights)
You will make your way to Loch Lomond, which is the largest expanse of inland water in Great Britain, for your final two nights in Scotland. En route you will have the opportunity to explore the resort town of Oban at leisure before arrive your accommodations, the icing on the cake for your Scottish experience, you will have time to relax into a more leisurely pace to ensure you are truly rejuvenated from your tour through Scotland. Take advantage of your free time to arrange your own experiences from the various offerings. The time is yours to customize your time and immerse yourself in the Scottish hospitality before returning to the United States.
