You will first head to Glasgow where it is recommended that you visit the art museums and galleries, for a lovely cultural break. Next, you will arrive in Fort William / Oban and have a day to visit Loch Lomond and enjoy a Northern Highlight Cruise.

 

Your journey will then bring you to Aviemore and Nairn, where you will be sure to take many postcard-worthy photos of the Eilean Dunon Castle and the view of the Loch Ness from Fort Augustus.

Continuing on, make your way to Perth and Pitlochry to see nature in all its natural glory at the Cairngorm Nationalpark and again, for our whiskey lovers, a visit to the Aberfeldy distillery will also be included.

Your Destinations

Your Destination

With its authentic Scottish charm, medieval Old Town, and rich history, Edinburgh is a treasure to discover. Presided over by the iconic Edinburgh Castle and the great hulk of Arthur’s Seat - the perfect spot for a morning hike - the city also boasts a UNESCO World Heritage city centre and a thriving events scene, making it the perfect, fun-filled city trip whatever the time of year.

 

Start your day with a spot of boutique shopping in Multrees Walk, before visiting the former medieval market square at the Grassmarket, which also offers splendid views of the Edinburgh Castle. The castle itself is a grand monument, perched on an extinct volcano, leave this monument for an afternoon visit, when you can admire the sunset over the city. Afterwards, head to the West End for chic restaurants and bars - you might even get there in time for a show at the Edinburgh Playhouse!

 

Arguably the best time to visit the city is in August, when the annual Fringe Festival takes over the city. The largest arts festival in the world, this is your time to catch a future star of comedy or theatre! To escape the city’s crowds, head to Leith, the city’s port and hub for creatives, where you can savour seafood in waterfront restaurants and shop for gifts at the Scottish Design Exchange.

Glasgow

Glasgow is a unique city in Scotland that's well worth a visit for any lover of culture, art, shopping or fine dining! Walk through its enticing streets and bask in the friendly atmosphere. Glasgow is routinely regarded as one of the world's friendliest cities, and offers lots of pub, bars and restaurants to explore - as well as a rich and varied history to learn about.

 

Some of the most popular places to visit in Glasgow include the Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, a fantastic complex that houses some of the UK’s best examples of British and European art, the city's Cathedral, which was consecrated in 1197, and the charming Botanic Gardens, which are internationally renowned for their extensive tropical and temperate plant collections.

 

For guests looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city's streets, Glasgow Green is also a great place to retreat to. Here, tourists will find themselves nestled within 129 acres of greenery, complete with the gorgeous 'Winter Gardens' and the 'People's Palace', which tells of Glasgow's colourful history dating all the way back to 1750.
