Changes to the itinerary are necessary during the winter period
We collect you from your hotel in our luxury vehicle at 8.30am. We travel around the City of Edinburgh, visiting both Old and New Town. This gives us the opportunity to tell you many facts, figures, and interesting stories about the long, rich history of Scotland’s capital City.
We then head to the Forth road and rail bridges. The rail bridge (The Forth Bridge), built between 1881 and 1889, was considered at the time, the greatest feat of engineering in the industrial world.
Overlooking these landmarks are some of Scotland’s finest stately homes and castles. First we visit Hopetoun House. Arguably the finest stately home in Scotland.
Blackness Castle is our next stop. This sea side fortress is a text book example of a Scottish castle.
Next its on to the Palace of Linlithgow. A ghostly looking shell of its former grand royal days.
Finally we visit Rosslyn Chapel. Recently featured in Hollywood blockbuster The Da Vinci Code. With links to the knight’s templar and Built in 1446, this is believed to be the hiding place of the Holy Grail.
You also have the option to visit Glenkinchie Whisky Distillery on this tour as a replacement to some locations listed above.
