Day 1 Stirling Castle & The Trossachs forests
Either use this day for travelling or, if already nearby, why not travel with your group to the picturesque Trossachs forests & through Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park. Discover forested hills, stunning mountains and beautiful lochs during your journey. In the afternoon visit the stronghold of Stirling Castle & learn about the Wars of Independence, William Wallace & Robert the Bruce that shaped the history of Scotland...
Day 2 Cairngorms National Park, Balmoral Castle & Speyside Whisky Trail
Start the day with a scenic drive though the breathtakingly beautiful Cairngorms National Park with views from the Cairnwell Pass and passing Braemar, home to the iconic annual Highland Games Gathering. Visit Balmoral Castle and Estate, romantic highland summer retreat of the Royal Family since the time of Queen Victoria. Continue your journey to the Speyside to taste some of Scotland’s famous “elixir of life” in one of the smallest distilleries around.
Day 3 Surprise yourself: Dundee & the V&A
By complete contrast explore some of Scotland’s industrial past with a visit to the vibrant coastal city of Dundee, formerly famous for its three Js of jam, jute and journalism and today home to the iconic Victoria and Albert Museum, Scotland’s design museum. Marvel at the RRS Discovery, built in 1901 for Captain Scott’s first voyage to the Antarctic.
Day 4 Perthshire & Palace of Scone
Travel south today through Perthshire and enjoy a visit to the Palace of Scone, world famous crowning place of the Kings of Scots including Macbeth and Robert the Bruce. Enjoy a ramble through the palace grounds before heading west for a detour past the stunning Loch Tay, once home to ancient settlers and stop at the picturesque village of Killin and its spectacular series of rapids, the Falls of Dochart.
