ONE DAY TRIP TO THE LOWLANDS AND MELROSE (PRIVATE)
Come and discover the Scottish Lowlands that Sir Walter Scott loved so much and where you will find rural villages, medieval abbeys and enchanting landscapes.
Peebles: Our first stop will be in this picturesque village to stroll through its streets and get in touch with nature along the river Tweed until we discover Neidpath Castle, built in the 14th century.
Leaderfoot Viaduct: Once used for the railway, it was earmarked for demolition. Thanks to Historic Scotland, it was saved from ending up as a pile of rubble and today it is a gift to our memory.
Scott's Lookout: Just a few minutes from the viaduct, we will make another stop for a breath of fresh air and there is no better place to do so than where Sir Walter Scott, the famous writer who championed the Scottish language, loved to visit to admire the beloved landscapes that the Lowlands have to offer.
Statue of William Wallace: Very close to Scott's favourite spot, you will find the statue in honour of William Wallace which was erected in 1822. Under the gaze of the great national hero, we will review the most important chapters of his continuing battle for Scotland's freedom in that famous period of history known as the battles for independence between the Scots and the English.
Melrose: home to the most famous abbey in the Lowlands and the burial place of the heart of Scotland's hero and king, Robert The Bruce, do you want to know all about this national hero who fought for Scottish independence? We will also have time to sample the local cuisine.
Rosslyn Chapel: This chapel, with its spectacular architecture, engravings and reliefs, was made famous on the silver screen in Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. Rosslyn Chapel hides passages of history worthy of being uncovered. Built in 1446 as a house at the service of God, it is full of mystery, symbolism and countless theories, myths and legends that you will have to come and discover with our guides. Today it is one of the most visited places in Scotland.
