Oh, ye’ll tak’ the high road and I’ll tak’ the low road, and we’ll all have a marvelous time in enchanting Scotland. Prepare yourself for highlands, lowlands, islands, and everything in between. The country that brought you golf, bagpipes, and kilts is also sure to bring you a tour experience you won’t soon forget. Historic castles and exciting cities such as Edinburgh and Glasgow give way to sprawling wilderness and seaside panoramas. Whether your interests lie with the centuries of history, the breathtaking scenery, the unique culture, or the legends and lore, you won’t want to miss your chance to explore Scotland.
Edinburgh Castle: From the Iron Age to the modern day, Edinburgh Castle holds a treasure trove of Scottish history. Looking down on the capital city, the fortress still displays the Scottish crown jewels and the coronation Stone of Destiny. Only the One o’clock Gun will draw you out of your fairytale and back to real life (in which you really are in a Scottish castle on a dramatic cliff).
Lochs and Highlands: A region of stunning wilderness and iconic sites, the Scottish Highlands is the stuff of legends. Gaze up at Ben Nevis, the tallest mountain in the British Isles, and take a walk on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. Even explore foggy and mysterious Loch Ness, but keep your eyes peeled for monsters. Well, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Festival dates span from July 25 – August 5.
