Witness the Victorian architecture of ancient Glasgow, cruise the breathtaking Loch Lomond, travel to Britain’s highest peak, visit the largest castle in northern Scotland and stay in premium accommodation in the heart of Edinburgh’s famous George Street.

The Experiences - Ancient sites, quaint cities and striking natural landscapes

Tour the gorgeous streets of 1400-year-old Glasgow, with its rich history, stylish sophistication and stunning Victorian and Art Nouveau architecture. A national cultural hub, you’ll view the vibrant River Clyde, visit the classic St. Mungo’s Cathedral and witness the grandeur of George Square, named after King George III.

Discover the quaint villages, picturesque vistas and mysterious islands that surround Loch Lomond on a serene cruise through the glass-like lake. While you’re here, you’ll visit the magical Inveraray Castle where you’ll explore the landscaped gardens, French-tapestried interiors and grand walls of this castle set against a backdrop of the highland landscape.

As well as witnessing the striking scenery, this tour will give you the chance to experience Scotland like a local. A trip to and behind-the-scenes tour of the Old Pultney distillery – one of the most northerly distilleries on the Scottish mainland – will have you learning the many steps involved in the making of this single malt whiskey and enjoying tastings along the way.

See the crown jewels of Scotland on a tour of the striking Edinburgh Castle – perched high on a hill, watching over the city’s Old Town. The famed fortress once inspired JK Rowling’s depiction of Harry Potter’s Hogwarts and its timeless allure lives on.

The Accommodation – From the heart of charming Edinburgh to a historic stay overlooking Loch Broom

Discover the traditionally Scottish town of Thurso with two nights at the primely-positioned St Clair Hotel. Located in the heart of the town, St Clair Hotel is surrounded by traditional cafes and boutiques, making it a great base to explore all thatThurso has to offer.

Stay in a premier hotel surrounded by the rugged mountains of the Scottish Highlands. Perched on the edge of the tranquil Loch Broom, The Royal Hotel - that's thought to be the oldest hotel in the area - provides an escape from the busy cities.

Spend two nights in Edinburgh’s bustling George Street at the old-world Principal Edinburgh. Following a complete refurbishment in 2016, the Principal Edinburgh George Street updated its classic 1800’s elegance for the 21st century and went on to win the 2017 Scottish Hotel of the Year award at the Scottish Hotel Awards. There’s nothing stuffy about this heritage-listed hotel, with its soft leather and velvet furnishings, smart TV’s and mood lighting.
