5000 Years of Scotland in a Day

Lunch and all entry fees included. Hear Scotland's story from evolution to the present day in the beauty of the Perthshire countryside. Bruce Fummey drives you round, and brings to life, sites of historic interest from the Neolithic to the modern.

Entry fees and a lunch are included.

We’ll go up a moor to a famous battle site, down a strath to a Roman fort, though a glen to a WW2 POW camp before coffee in Scotland’s oldest working distillery. Next climb high to look back on one of the most stunning views in Perthshire, and all before lunch.

Lunch on the banks of Loch Tay. Roll back the centuries to visit a Neolithic crannog, then standing stones. Commemorate our most famous regiment, then visit a town key to Macbeth AND Bonnie Prince Charlie. Finally tour of one of the best-preserved relics of the industrial revolution.
