You’ll begin in the vibrant Scottish capital of Edinburgh. Take in an optional Scottish evening of bagpipers, Highland dancers, and the Ceremony of the Haggis. Explore Edinburgh’s Old Town, New Town, and consider a visit to the castle to gaze upon the Crown Jewels. On to the Highland resort of Pitlochry, via the “home of golf” at St. Andrews. In Pitlochry, take in the ancient sites with mystical stone circles and standing stones. Called “the fairest portion of the northern kingdom” by Sir Walter Scott, Perthshire is a serene world of lush forests and rushing rivers. From here, your Scotland holiday ventures to the “Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond,” as the song goes. Next, stop in Glasgow and decide among its more than 20 museums and galleries, great shopping along the “Style Mile,” and hearty food and drink as only Scotland can serve, or spend time on an optional tour of Outlander themed castles and sites!
