Classic Scotland with Castle Stays

Discover Scotland at your own pace and stay in a castle every night!

All of our tours are bespoke and tailored to exactly what you want to do. This itinerary is just an example - get in touch and let us customise it for your perfect holiday.

Castles hold a special appeal for so many of us. Whether we have fond memories of childhood tails of dragons, knights and heroic adventures, an appreciation of grand and wonderful architecture or simply want to feel like a Laird or Lady for the day, there's something magical and exciting about staying the night in a castle.

What we love about this itinerary is the fact you don't have to stop at one night - we've found a beautiful route taking in some of the most incredible scenery and experience that Scotland has to offer, and you can stay in a castle every single night.

With the option of departing from Glasgow or Edinburgh and a detour to the stunning Isle of Mull if you fancy, this trip can be tailored to suit your requirements. Just ask!
