Your experience


Experience the real Scotland on this scenic tour of the Highlands, where you will see forests, mountains, rivers and gorges. Return to a local distillery for a sip of whisky before returning to Edinburgh for an evening at the world famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

Drive past the impressive castle and Wallace Monument into the heart of Scotland. The Highlands are a vast expanse of scenic beauty, once home to the infamous outlaw and folk hero Rob Roy MacGregor.

Get to know his fascinating life and then enjoy your own inner rebel when you visit a local whisky distillery! Scotland's national drink, also known as uisge beatha or the "water of life", will warm you up just before a walk in the Perthshire forest.

Breathe in the fresh Scottish air and the smell of pine needles on the Hermitage Forest Walk and don't forget to look up! This is the forest landscape with cute red squirrels and huge Douglas firs, some of the tallest trees in Britain.

See the thundering Black Linn Falls tumble into the River Braan, take a few photos and head back to Edinburgh for a tour (or perhaps some other warming drama)

Make your way to Edinburgh Castle for your last stop: the magnificent Edinburgh Tattoo, an annual military parade of Scottish drums, bagpipes and performances held every August on the castle's esplanade.
