Glasgow, West Coast, Inverness, Aberdeen & Edinburgh

Enjoy it all with castles, lochs, scenic landscapes, history, legends, and more! Visit Stirling Castle, which guards the lowest crossing point of the River Forth, and explore the creative, cultural hub of Glasgow from St. Mungo Cathedral to Glasgow Green. We’ll wander the rooms of historic Inveraray Castle (which may look familiar to fans of Downton Abbey), and ride the ferry to the Isle of Mull and mystical Iona, one of Scotland’s most sacred sites. Enjoy the Scottish Highland’s picturesque landscapes and stop to look for Nessie at Loch Ness. We’ll appreciate the remains of one of Scotland’s most beautiful medieval buildings, Elgin Cathedral; and get acquainted with Edinburgh’s medieval streets. Along the way we’ll enjoy a smoked salmon tasting, a dram of whiskey, and a Scottish feast!
