Our 10 day tour of Scotland is a masterpiece, combining the essential scenic routes and historic and cultural stopovers to give you an authentic and in-depth experience. Travel through the Scottish Borders and Scotland's first National Park to Glencoe, Skye, Applecross, Inverness and the Cairngorms, Stirling, St Andrews and finally Edinburgh with many other beautiful and fascinating places on the way providing the "trip of a lifetime"..

Day 1 begins with a leisurely visit to Rosslyn Chapel, made famous by Dan Brown's book The Da Vinci Code, before we head to the Scottish borders for a relaxing wander around the Abbey of Dryburgh and take in the panorama at “Scott’s View”.

Day 2 is a fabulous introduction to the natural landscape; exploring the mountains, glens, lochs and rivers of Scotland’s first National Park. Enjoy a relaxing walk around the village of Luss on the 'bonnie banks' of Loch Lomond before we head into the Argyll Forest Park.

Day 3 takes in the wonderful lochside village of Inveraray and its famous Castle, an incredible archaeological treat to see Kilmartin Glen, often referred to as the birthplace of Scotland and a visit to the seaside town of Oban, Gateway to the Isles.

Day 4 begins with a tour through Glencoe, steeped in history with stunning scenery. Later we head for the village of Fort Augustus on the shores of Loch Ness before enjoying the journey towards iconic Eilean Donan Castle and the Isle of Skye on the rugged west coast.

Day 5 is a tour of the Island of Skye, passing through Broadford and on to the Island capital, Portree, with its colourful harbour front. Heading north we take in the fabulous scenery and seascapes with Dunvegan Castle and other options a possibility.

Day 6 is a trip over one of the highest roads in Scotland, the Bealach Na Ba, to the remote Applecross Peninsula; a beautiful and tranquil place on the rugged coast of Wester Ross with stunning scenery. Later, we travel east to the 'Capital of the Highlands', Inverness.

Day 7 begins with a visit to Culloden Battlefield to learn about the Jacobite rebellion of 1745 before exploring the Cairngorm National Park, with towering mountain ranges and large tracts of the original Caledonian Pine Forest. Heading south, we take in the villages of Carrbridge and Pitlochry.

Day 8 allows time to enjoy highland Perthshire before we journey south via Dunkeld to explore Stirling Castle. An enjoyable visit to this royal court will reveal the castle's long and turbulent history with iconic figures such as Mary Queen of Scots, William Wallace and Robert the Bruce.

Day 9 explores the East Neuk of Fife with visits to St Andrews; the home of golf and also the home of Prince William while he attended the University here - one of the oldest in the world, and the quaint East Neuk fishing villages of Crail and Anstruther.
