Detailed Description

From the annals of medieval British chroniclers to the celluloid of the silver screen, Scotland is a country that is filled with history and legends. It’s a country made up of warrior poets and loveable outlaws, as well as daring princes fighting for a crown and solitary pipers playing tunes that waft over the weathered stretches of the Scottish Highlands. This weeklong Scotland vacation will show you all of this and more, from the modern streets of Scotland’s greatest cities to the unconquerable wilderness of the savage north, from high culture in an aristocratic manor to high winds blowing from the shores of Loch Ness; it’s all within the presence of some of the friendliest people you could ever hope to meet.

Learn about Scotland’s numerous rebellions against her mighty neighbor to the south as you stride the defenses of Stirling Castle and survey the fields of Culloden. Explore the country’s more sophisticated side, from the museums of Edinburgh to the Old High Church in Inverness. Weave your way through the famous Highlands, from the valleys of the Great Glen to the endless stretch of Loch Ness. And, of course, have a taste of the finest single malts in the world at one of the nation’s oldest distilleries.

If you’ve ever longed to live in the pages of a Walter Scott novel and you’ve never been put off by the thought of haggis, if you’ve always wanted to see the spectacular scenery of the Highlands and found yourself longing for nice spot of whisky, or if you’ve ever wanted to experience life in all its incarnations, from natural beauty to urban splendor, then this is the trip for you. Scotland is unique and unforgettable, memorable and magical, fun and friendly and truly fantastic. And it’s waiting for you to visit.
