"Our tour guide Duncan was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our day was amazing…everything went very smoothly and we had a most enjoyable day. The Edinburgh Tattoo was breathtaking and it was also lovely to catch up and have a chat with people whom we had met during the day trip."

Itinerary


We leave Edinburgh behind and make our first stop at the majestic equine sculptures, The Kelpies. Then it's into the Highlands through the scenic beauty, once home to the infamous cattle thief and rogue, Rob Roy MacGregor. We visit a local whisky distillery where you will learn how the 'water of life' is made and sample a wee dram.

We then explore the peaceful Hermitage and take a short woodland walk to see the Black Linn Falls on the River Braan. We take in Dunkeld with its spectacular cathedral on the banks of the River Tay before returning south past the inspiring Forth Bridges.

Back in Edinburgh, you will have time to relax and explore the city before making your own way to the evening performance of the Military Tattoo at Edinburgh Castle.
