Day 1: Glasgow Highlights

Arrive at Glasgow Airport and meet your chauffeur who will then drive you to your hotel.

Take some time to get settled in before you begin exploring Glasgow, a city that flourished in Victorian times. See George Square and Glasgow Cathedral. Visit Provand's Lordship, Glasgow's oldest house built in 1471, and step back in time to discover Glasgow's unique history.

In the evening, enjoy your first traditional Scottish dinner of the trip and then head back to the hotel for an early night after your long journey.

Overnight in Glasgow

Day 2: Loch Lomond & Loch Ness Cruise

Meet your driver this morning and leave Glasgow. Enjoy the great views of the Highland peaks as you’re taken north along the banks of Loch Lomond. Stop at Inveraray Castle, the imposing Campbell family home that was built between 1746 and 1789. Next, stop off on the shores of Loch Awe at Kilchurn Castle. Kilchurn was another Campbell family stronghold. It was also a filming location for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

Further north, you’ll drive along the shores of the beautiful Loch Awe and the River Orchy. The drive into Glencoe is stunning and also a good stopping point for lunch. Later, you’ll continue further north and arrive in Fort Augustus. Settle into your accommodation upon arrival.

Overnight in Fort Augustus

Day 3: Culloden Battlefield & Whisky Tasting

Today, search for the mythical sea monster Nessie as you drive along the coast of Loch Ness. Visit Urquhart Castle and enjoy a tour. You can also choose whether you would like to take a cruise on the loch or just continue on. Next, you’ll arrive in Inverness right around lunch time. After a nice lunch, take a short walk around the town before getting back in the car. From Inverness, you’ll be taken way out to Culloden Battlefield. Walk around and also spend some time in the museum.

Later on your way south through the Scottish Highlands, your drive will take you along the outskirts of Cairngorms National Park. Marvel at the beautiful views before you arrive in the capital city of Edinburgh in the early evening. Once you’ve checked into your accommodation, go out and enjoy dinner in this lively city.

Overnight in Edinburgh

Day 4: Edinburgh Castle & City Tour

Edinburgh has many great walking tours, which is a nice way to really explore the city. After breakfast, take one or more of these unique tours. Afterwards, you can then decide how you would like to spend the remainder of the day. See the bustling Princes Street and the wide streets of the 200-year-old Georgian New Town. Enjoy a walk along the part of the Royal Mile where compact medieval houses reach 11 floors tall. Next visit Edinburgh Castle, which dominates the city and contains the Crown Jewels of Scotland and the Stone of Scone.

Overnight in Edinburgh

Day 5: Rosslyn Chapel & Roman Border

Today is your last full day on this tour. After breakfast, you’ll be taken to Rosslyn Chapel. This chapel was once Scotland’s best-kept secret, but since the publication of ‘The Da Vinci Code,’ it has now achieved fame worldwide. Even though the amazing stone carvings are still not fully understood, Rosslyn Chapel is an architectural masterpiece.

Travel south to the delightful town of Melrose for a quick lunch. Melrose Abbey is a partly ruined monastery believed to be the final resting place of King Robert the Bruce’s heart. Sir Walter Scott (one of Scotland’s greatest writers) lived nearby and really loved this beautiful area.

After exploring Melrose Abbey, cross the ancient Scotland/England border. Visit Hadrian’s Wall, one of the most important monuments built by the Romans. This Roman wall is also a stunning example of their engineering skills. It cuts Britain in half just south of the Scottish border. It is also the inspiration for the Wall in Game of Thrones. After your full day of sightseeing, head back to Edinburgh for your final night in Scotland. Make the most of your last night before going back to your hotel!

Overnight in Edinburgh

Day 6: Return Home

Your chauffeur will drop you off at the airport today and you will board your flight and begin your journey home.
