Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Edinburgh (2 Nights)
Get lost in the narrow lanes of Edinburgh - the Scottish capital with a mystical air that combines ancient heritage with the verve of a modern city. Spend your day at leisure delving into its rich history and embracing the warm culture of the Scots, before joining your travel companions and Travel Director for a Welcome Reception with a light meal and drinks. Welcome Reception

Day 2: Edinburgh Sightseeing and Free Time
Join your Local Specialist this morning for an intriguing sightseeing tour of the city. Ascend Castle Rock and visit Edinburgh Castle, which watches over the surrounding city from its elevated vantage point. Stroll through the Old Town along the Royal Mile and see the stunning Palace of Holyroodhouse before enjoying time at leisure to soak up the city's festive atmosphere. If your travel dates coincide with the Edinburgh Festival, your visit will include tickets to the magnificent Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Full Breakfast

Day 3: Edinburgh – St. Andrews – Pitlochry – Scottish Highlands (2 Nights)
Tread in the footsteps of the world's golfing greats and head to St. Andrews en route to the glorious Scottish Highlands. A scenic drive takes us north and across the Firth of Tay, past the city of Dundee to Pitlochry. After lunch, enjoy some free time to explore its river-side setting or join an Optional Experience to Blair Castle, the ancestral home of the Clan Murray. Our day in beautiful surrounds comes to an end with a cosy dinner at our hotel - one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories' - located within the Cairngorms National Park in the Scottish Highlands. Full Breakfast, Dinner

Day 4: Isle of Skye, Culloden and Scenic Highlands Excursion
Journey to the coast, arriving in Mallaig where we'll board our ferry and cross to Armadale on the Isle of Skye. Heather-clad peaks provide a stunning backdrop for our scenic drive across the Sleat Peninsula. Indulge in some free time for lunch before crossing the bridge back to the mainland. The rugged beauty of Eilean Donan Castle will leave you speechless, before you continue your journey past Scotland's infamous Loch Ness to the tragic battlefield of Culloden. Pay tribute to the brave men who lost their lives in the Jacobite Uprising, then return to your hotel this evening. Full Breakfast, Dinner

Day 5: Scottish Highlands – Glencoe – Glasgow (2 Nights)
Our first stop today sees us commemorate World War II history at the Commando Memorial near Fort William, from which we admire spectacular views of Britain's highest peak - Ben Nevis. We journey through the volcanic ruins and precipitous mountains that lie just beyond Glencoe to see the "Glen of the Weeping". Here we remember the MacDonald clansmen who were massacred in 1692. Continuing towards the River Clyde, we arrive at our final stop for the day - Glasgow. Full Breakfast

Day 6: Glasgow Orientation and Stirling Castle Excursion
Madainn mhath! While your Gaelic may be a little rusty, your orientation tour around this edgy city will be anything but. Begin your day seeing Glasgow's iconic sights. Enjoy views of the People's Palace and Winter Gardens, the regal George Square and River Clyde, for over 200 years the centre of shipbuilding. Journey to Stirling, to see its hilltop fortress, which stands as a symbol of national pride. Stirling Castle was once the seat of Scottish kings and queens, including Mary, Queen of Scots. View the Wallace Monument from the castle walls, paying tribute to the Scottish hero who fought for Scotland's independence. Later, we 'Dive Into Culture' at Glengoyne Whisky Distillery and enjoy a wee dram before joining the Wood family at their 15th-century farm on the shores of Loch Ard to 'Connect With Locals' over a home-cooked Farewell Be My Guest Dinner, amidst tales of Rob Roy and a few foot-tapping Ceilidh tunes.Full Breakfast, Farewell Dinner
