ITINERARY

DAY 1 Arrive in Glasgow, Scotland
Check into your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to relax in Scotland’s largest city. At 6 pm, meet your Tour Director and traveling companions for a welcome dinner at your hotel. (Dinner)

DAY 2 Glasgow–Fort William–Isle of Skye
Your tour of Bonnie Scotland starts in earnest with a day full of spectacular scenery. Follow the “Bonnie Banks” of Loch Lomond and enter the Highlands. Wild Rannoch Moor; Glen Coe, where the MacDonald Clan was treacherously massacred by the Campbells; lovely Loch Linnhe; and Fort William beneath Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, are on the morning’s agenda. Then, follow the “Road to the Isles,” passing Glenfinnan, the site where the Young Pretender’s standard was raised in 1745. At Mallaig, board your FERRY and sail across the Sound of Sleat to Armadale on the romantic Inner Hebridean Isle of Skye, where Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora MacDonald took refuge. (Breakfast, Dinner)

DAY 3 Isle of Skye–Inverness–Culloden–Elgin
Cross the bridge back to the mainland and drive further into the remote Highlands for another day of breathtaking Scottish scenery. Follow the shores of Loch Carron to Achnasheen, pause at Drumnadrochit on the shores of Loch Ness, and keep a lookout for the mysterious monster on the way to Inverness, the Highland capital. At CULLODEN VISITOR CENTRE the scene is set of the crushing Hanoverian victory over Bonnie Prince Charlie’s Scottish clans before reaching your overnight destination in Elgin. (Breakfast, Dinner)

DAY 4 Elgin–Pitlochry–Dundee
Start the day with a unique treat: admire a champion shepherd as he manipulates his flock with up to 10 border collies in a SHEEPDOG DISPLAY. Then, enjoy spectacular Highland scenery as you drive through Cairngorms National Park and Glen Garry to the Victorian mountain resort of Pitlochry. This afternoon, visit a WHISKY DISTILLERY, where your guide explains the ancient art of converting barley, water, and yeast into a heart-warming liquor. Stay the night in the city of Dundee overlooking the picturesque Firth of Tay. (Breakfast, Dinner)

DAY 5 Dundee–St. Andrews–Edinburgh
A leisurely start to the day with a drive across the Tay Bridge to St. Andrews, whose Royal and Ancient Golf Club, founded in 1754, has given us the rules of golfing. A fun inclusion is the opportunity to hit a few balls at the ST. ANDREWS GOLF PRACTICE CENTRE. Continue on to Perth and a special visit to SCONE PALACE, the stately home of the Earl and Countess of Mansfield. During your welcome over coffee and shortbread, hear about the crowning of Scottish kings here, then join your guide on a private tour of the Murray family home. Plenty of time later to explore the palace grounds. Cross the mighty Forth Road Bridge to Edinburgh and tonight, don’t miss our optional Scottish evening with Highland dancers, bagpipers, and the Ceremony of the Haggis. (Breakfast)

DAY 6 Edinburgh
Morning city sightseeing with a Local Guide introduces you to the 200-year-old “New Town” and famous scientists, inventors, and novelists. In the “Old Town,” drive up the narrow Royal Mile to EDINBURGH CASTLE to admire Scotland’s Crown Jewels. The afternoon is free to enjoy this “Prince of Cities” at your own pace. Later, a unique optional experience: board the former Royal Yacht Britannia, once the perfect royal residence for the Queen’s glittering state visits and family holidays. Tour five decks and see how the Royal Family and crew of 240 lived and worked on board. Dinner rounds off this optional evening. For departure numbers 0804, 0811, and 0818 tickets are included for tonight’s performance of the world-renowned MILITARY TATTOO, a vast spectacle of massed Scottish pipe bands that takes place in an arena on the esplanade of Edinburgh Castle.
