6 Day Taste of Scotland Tour Itinerary

Day 1 : Glasgow Highlights
Start your tour at Glasgow Airport with a group transfer to your hotel, departing at 8:00 am, 10:00 am or 12:00 noon. If you arrive later than noon, transfer to the hotel at your own expense. At 2:30 pm discover the main attractions of Glasgow as you drive around George Square with its ornate City Chambers and nearby Glasgow Cathedral. Visit the modern Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel to see extensive collections of various vehicles. Join your tour director for a welcome drink before dinner.

Day 2 : Loch Lomond & Loch Ness Cruise
Depart Glasgow and travel alongside the famous Loch Lomond, renowned for its unsurpassed beauty. Travel through the deep valley of Glen Coe, notorious for the Campbell massacre of the Clan Macdonald in 1692. Continue through Fort William and stop at the Spean Bridge Woollen Mill, which offers quality Scottish goods. At Fort Augustus embark on a short cruise on Loch Ness to admire enchanting views and keep an eye out for “Nessie.” Continue to Nairn and enjoy a Scottish Highland evening with traditional foods as well as bagpipe music and dance. (Friday departures of this tour will stay in Inverness and have a ceilidh.)

Day 3 : Culloden Battlefield & Whisky Tasting
Visit the Culloden Visitor Centre to learn about the Battle of Culloden where Bonnie Prince Charlie was defeated by the British army in 1746, changing the traditional way of Highland clan life forever. Drive through the Grampian Mountains to visit Blair Athol Distillery in Pitlochry to see how whisky is distilled and sample some. Continue south to Edinburgh and check in to your hotel, a few miles from the city and set in lovely grounds. Head into Edinburgh to the Heights Restaurant for dinner which is followed by a fun walking tour with a local guide to discover the haunts of Edinburgh’s eccentric characters in the narrow streets and alleys of the medieval city.
