Our week long package holidays introduce you to the history of Scotland. We also offer packages that support you if you are looking for your Scottish roots.
Come and join us to learn about Scottish history while sampling some of our iconic and less well known historic sites. Our unique and innovative holidays combine workshop sessions where you will learn about Scotland's fascinating heritage and your links to it with trips to important local sites and participation in local entertainment.
Our current holidays are
'In Search of the Picts',
'The Making of Scotland' and
Our 'Scots Ancestry' holiday guides and supports you while you connect with your family history.
'In Search of the Picts' introduces you to what is known about the sometimes obscure Picts - ancestors to many Scots today.
'The Making of Scotland' takes you through the main developments in the formation of our proud nation.
We only have between ten and sixteen holidaymakers on each of our holidays so we can generate good chat but also ensure you get plenty of attention.
Our holidays are based in beautiful historic country hotels where you will enjoy full board and a fantastic week-long programme of informative workshops. Our expertly led workshops will introduce you to Scotland and our history and will provide you with an orientation to guide you when we go to visit carefully selected sites. We think that, that way, you will gain much more from our site visits.
Our week starts with a welcome dinner with champagne and wine where we get to know one another. It ends with a farewell dinner with champagne and wine where we say our goodbyes to new friends. In between we have adventures in Scottish history, among stunning Scottish scenery and while sampling the best of Scottish hospitality, eating our way through Scotland's rich larder and joining in with local and traditional entertainment. If you are on the Scots Ancestry holiday you get all that and finding your kin too.
Our holidays are based right in the heart of Scotland in Perthshire and Angus where we find many of the most iconic historic sites in Scotland and from where it is relatively easy to get to other parts of the country.
