Your Itinerary In Detail

Day 1 - 2: Edinburgh

Start off your stay in the fantastic Scottish capital of Edinburgh.  Edinburgh Castle sits proudly above Princes Street Gardens, while the Royal Mile is lined with elegant townhouses turned chic department stores.

 

Venture into the medieval cobbled streets forming the maze that is the Old Town, where vintage shops sit next to traditional pubs.

 

Art lovers will be spoiled for choice between the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery of Modern Art. Head further afield, and you'll find star attractions including the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the Royal Yacht Britannia.

 

Enjoy included entry to Edinburgh Castle and immerse yourself in its fascinating and often bloodthirsty history!

Day 3 - 4: Aberdeen

Check-out from your hotel in Edinburgh and drive towards Scotland's second-largest city, Aberdeen.

 

Famed for its incredible Aberdeen Angus beef castle, craggy landscape, and grey-stone granite capital, Aberdeenshire is a delight to explore.

 

The area encompasses the vast Cairngorms National Park, thick with forest-clad mountains and heather moorlands. Swathes of sand line the coast, dotted with historic fishing villages.

 

And Aberdeenshire isn't known as Scotland's Castle Country for nothing: the region has 19 castles including Balmoral (summer house to the Royal Family), and Dunottar. You'll have an included visit to Dunnottar Castle, which towers on crumbling cliffs above the waves.

Day 5: Aberdeen to Inverness

En route to your next destination in Inverness, stop in Dufftown for your included visit to Glenfiddich Distillery. Glenfiddich is a single malt Scotch whisky, and the world's bestseller since 2017.

 

Learn about the history of the distillery, first founded in 1886, and follow the whisky making process from its humble beginnings to the fiery golden liquid poured into each bottle. After your visit, continue onto the Inverness area where you'll spend the night.

 

DAY 6: INVERNESS

Inverness's most famous resident is said to inhabit the gloomy depths of the vast Loch Ness. And while the loch itself is a stunning destination, visitors are sure to be impressed by the city's art gallery and museum, picturesque pink castle, and imposing cathedral too.

 

There's a lively drinking and dining scene, with a whole array of excellent restaurants serving menus of top Scottish produce. And you'll have the added bonus of an included cream tea during your stay in the area.

 

Enjoy an included entry to Dunrobin Castle. The most northerly of Scotland's great houses and the largest in the Highlands, the enormous property resembles a French château. The ancestral home of Earls and Dukes since the early 1300s, it has a particularly illustrious past.

Day 7: Inverness to Dundee

On Day 7, you'll have the opportunity to visit Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery. This Scottish whisky producer offers tastings, an interactive museum, and tours of the distillery that dates from the 1890s. Find out how they create the honeyed richness of the spirit.

 

Continue on towards the Perth, Pitlochry and Dundee region. Stop at the Iain Burnett Highland Chocolatier where you can continue your gourmet experience with a complimentary hot chocolate, made with any milk of your choosing.

 

You'll spend the night in the Perth, Pitlochry and Dundee area, where you can tuck into a hearty three-course dinner to celebrate the final night of your tour.

 

DAY 8: DEPARTURE FROM DUNDEE

Check-out from your hotel, having enjoyed an incredible adventure in bonnie Scotland!

Your Destinations

Edinburgh

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 visit the Royal Yacht Britannia.

Aberdeen

Welcome to Aberdeen, the second-largest city in Scotland, located in the northeast where the Dee and Don rivers meet the sea. Also known as the Granite City or the Silver City, this gem consists of beautiful buildings with a shining stone architecture built from granite.

 

There is so much to do and see not only in the city but in the region that surrounds it. It is worth exploring the Provost Skene's House, a building recognised as one of the most important historical attractions in Scotland. The interiors of the building are captivating, full of history and allow visitors to see what everyday life was like in the past centuries. The Aberdeen Maritime Museum has award-winning exhibitions, including one that focuses on the history and lifestyle of the North Sea oil industry.

 

Fittie, also known as Footdee, is a charming area of Aberdeen, characterised by lovely little fishermen houses. The area is located on a point in the northeastern entrance to the port of Aberdeen. Each cottage has something unique whether it is the artistic decorations or vibrant colours - this area should definitely make it on your list!
