Exploring the flora, fauna and culture of the Wild North A journey through the magnificent landscapes of Scotland, experiencing some of Britain’s most beautiful natural sights in a cultural context.

Arrival Day

Experience teaches us that people prefer to give themselves time to recover from the journey and explore a little on their own. We are therefore including a night at a chic Bed and Breakfast close to Edinburgh city centre before the full tour begins. Our guide is available to provide a walking tour of the city - please let us know if you would like to take up this option.

A taxi from Edinburgh airport will cost about £25, and there are good bus and tram links. The station is a short walk or taxi ride.

Day 2

We meet our guide at 9.30 in the lobby for the start of the tour – an excursion to the lovely coast of East Lothian at picturesque North Berwick. A boat trip to view the extraordinary seabird colonies of Bass Rock, followed by lunch near the harbour. An afternoon stroll in the links dunes with views of Fidra island. Back to Edinburgh for a second night.

Day 3

Over the impressive Forth Crossing and into the Highlands. Stop at pretty Dunkeld with its ruined cathedral on the Tay. Then some self-indulgence and lunch at the House of Bruar before a visit to Blair Castle, home of Europe’s last private army. Explore the lovely gardens and red deer enclosure. Then a visit to the dramatic pass of Killiekrankie before finding our accommodation at Pitlochry.

Day 4

A morning stroll along Loch Faskally and a short visit to a nearby distillery for a pre lunch taste of Scotland’s national drink. After an early lunch we travel further into the mountains to catch a sight of the wonderful Ospreys at Loch Garten. Then, up the Cairngorm mountain for the spectacular views and bird watching opportunities.

Day 5

Another day in the heart of the Highlands. We walk to the Uath Lochans and Fairletter Crag. Then a taste of Highland history at the outdoor folk museum and nearby ruined Ruthven barracks. Finally, to the RSPB hides at Loch Inch before travelling further north for a relaxed evening in Inverness.

Day 6

We depart Inverness - by boat – for a dolphin safari in the Moray Firth, home to the country’s most in-shore population of dolphins and porpoises, framed by the mountains and coastlands around. Then a trip to Tollie to watch the feeding of the red kites there. After this a visit to the shores of Loch Ness to visit romantic Urquart Castle (and, who knows, spot Britain’s most elusive and mysterious creature nearby).

Day 7

Travelling back South through the Highlands, we stop to admire Britain’s oldest tree, the Fortingall Yew in its lovely landscape. Then a visit to the Crannog centre to experience lochside dwelling, prehistoric style. We wind through the hills for a magnificent finale – Drummond Castle with its magnificent gardens - before returing to Edinburgh for a relaxed final evening.

Scottish Clans and Castles

Scottish Clans and Castles focuses on bespoke tours of Scotland and its castles. We offer exclusive driver-guided and personalised holidays throughout Scotland, specialising in taking people to see their ancient clan lands. Based in Scotland since 2000, we work closely with a number of Clan Chiefs (many of whom guide for us) and castle owners. We have been running Outlander Tours since the books came out here in 2003. They are well received, and Diana Gabaldon even kindly mentions us on her website to tour with. We also have several tours including food, wildlife, art etc.
