Look beyond kilts and sea creatures
Between jutting cliffs that spill into the ocean and lush, sprawling verdure, exists the majesty and mystery of the Caledonian landscape. Where a far-reaching history of epic battles, fought with honour and glory, can still be felt as you peer out over the battlements of impressive stone castles, and the crisp, succulent crunch of fresh battered fish echoes the soft whisper of the ocean's lulling movement. Scotland's rich culture exudes both the traditional and the eclectic, from the symbolic hush of enigmatic ruins, to the calm vibrancy of its immense forest glades, to the robust expressive nature of the country's locals. You'll discover new legends as you weave your way through the regal tapestry of Scotland's environs.

Additionally, the tour includes six dinners, including a Scottish Highland Evening dinner, Ghillie Dhu Ceilidh with traditional Scottish band in Edinburgh, and Four table d'hote dinners.
