Project Description

14-day tour featuring Glasgow, Edinburgh, St. Andrews, Iverness, Culloden Moor, Orkney Islands and Loch Lomond

From its historic castles to its stunning landscapes, to its exciting cities and charming, small towns – Scotland has it all. On this comprehensive guided Scotland tour, you’ll overnight in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Thurso, Isle of Skye, and Isle of Mull. Along the way, you’ll visit some of its historical castles; witness its unspoiled, breathtaking scenery, experience its cities and some of its small towns, and learn about its fascinating history.

Scotland is known for its many castles, and you’ll have the opportunity to visit Edinburgh Castle, dating to the 12th century and home of the Scottish Crown Jewels; Brodie Castle, with its outstanding art collection and magnificent library; and Dunrobin Castle, where you’ll also visit the formal gardens. Scotland is also known for its interesting and often bloody history, and you’ll have an opportunity to visit some of its historical sights. On the Orkney Islands, visit Skara Brae, with remains from a 5,000-year-old Neolithic village. Learn about 13 centuries of clan history at the Museum of the Isles on the Isle of Skye.
Outlander fans will be treated to visits of two prominent sites: Doune Castle, with its striking 100-foot-high gatehouse, and the Royal Burgh of Culross, once a port city on the River Forth.

Throughout this Scotland tour, you’ll experience Scotland at its best—the breathtakingly wild and unspoiled scenery, miles of yellow-sand beaches on Scotland’s northern coast, waterfalls and jagged, dark peaks on the Isle of Skye are only matched by the inspiring hills, green woodlands, and spectacular beaches on the “Road to the Isles.” Your expert Tour Director will bring Scotland to life with in-depth knowledge of its history, customs, stories, and secrets.
