  • On an estate once described as “one of the glories of wild Scotland”, go off-track pony trekking through past babbling rivers and dense pine forest, led by skilled guides.

  • Tee off at the greatest golf resort in the world, choosing from one of its three iconic courses.
  • Walk down the Royal Mile, one of the most famous streets in the world. Enter into the high-end shops selling wares such as whisky and cashmere, while discovering the Old Town’s long and winding history.

  • Enjoy a visit to an internationally renowned chocolatier, who spent three years perfecting their recipe for the Velvet Truffle – which was later declared the best dark chocolate truffle in the world!

 

  • Let a local guide lead you through the jaw-dropping scenery of Glencoe; the remains of an ancient supervolcano.

 

  • Travel to the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, where the beautiful water and surrounding greenery have inspired writers, poets and artists for centuries.

THINGS TO DO

THE JACOBITE STEAM TRAIN

Travel over the 21 arches of the Glenfinnian Viaduct, now best known from the Harry Potter films

EDINBURGH CASTLE

Known as the “Jewel in Scotland’s Crown”.

FALCONRY

Experience first-hand the art of falconry. Known as the “sport of kings”, this is a wonderful opportunity to see magnificent birds of prey up close. Often including Falcons, Owls, Hawks and Eagles; in full flight, they are spectacular.

EDINBURGH GHOST TOUR

Follow your cloaked guide through the shadowy streets of Edinburgh’s Old Town for a private exploration of underground vaults which are reputed to be amongst the most haunted places in the city. In this atmospheric location, lit only by the flicker of candle light, your guide will regale you with stories of murderers and vagrants, torture and hangings. Their true history is even more terrifying than fiction.

HIGHLAND FARM VISIT

Meet the Highland Cattle. With their fluffy hair and long horns, the cows are a true icon of Scotland and make for a great photo opportunity! Perhaps also take the time to meet some of the farm’s smaller residents – chickens, turkeys, pigs, and sheep. Lambing takes place at the end of April, and you will be welcome to feed any pet lambs that may be around.

HIGHLAND CHOCOLATIER

Enjoy a special visit to the picturesque base of the internationally-renowned Highland Chocolatier. This award-winning chocolatier is the creator of the Velvet Truffle; it took over three years to perfect and went on to be judged the “Best Dark Chocolate Truffle in the World”.

PLACES VISITED

THE TROSSACHS

The ‘Trossachs’, are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 
Straddling the border between the Highlands and Lowlands, the Trossachs is often referred to as Scotland in Miniature – within a few miles, you can find towering peaks and deep wooded glens, as well as babbling streams and rivers which run into magnificent lochs.

LOCH LOMOND

Loch Lomond is one of the Scotland’s most famous stretches of water. Formed during the last Ice Age, the north is dominated by mountainous peaks and a scattering of islands can be found at the southern shores.

The loch is steeped in history and has inspired artists, poets and writers for centuries. Praised by such figures as Robert Burns and Gerard Manley Hopkins as well as being the focus of the ever-popular song “The Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond”, which closes many a night of revelry, it has earned its place in Scottish culture both high and low.

A RANGER GUIDED WALK IN GLENCOE

Scotland’s most famous glen.  It is often considered one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in the country and certainly one of the most dramatic; thundering waterfalls tumble down the sides of mountains into sparkling lochs. Scenery and geology aside, the glen has its place firmly in the history books due to its savage history. It was the site of the infamous massacre of Clan Macdonald of Glencoe by government troops in 1692. Reserved privately, a local guide will take you on a guided walk.

 

THE HIGHLANDS

The Highlands very much embody the romance of Scotland; they really are the Scotland of your imagination, a beautiful and inspiring region of ancient landscapes with a fascinating history. Spend the day exploring with your chauffeur-guide. There is a wealth of places to visit

CAIRNGORMS NATIONAL PARK

Is the largest of its kind in the UK, covering approximately 4, 500 square  It is a spectacular mountainous area; which is home to the UK’s six highest mountains with 55 Munros (a term that is applied to a mountain over 3000 ft).  There are huge forests of ancient native trees, cascading waterfalls and more wildlife than you can shake a capercaillie (a huge woodland grouse native bird of Scotland).

EDINBURGH

Scotland’s historic capital city. Edinburgh, sometimes referred to as the “Athens of the North”, is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. It has two distinct areas: the Old Town, dominated by a medieval fortress; and the neo- classical New Town, dating from the 18th The harmonious connection of these two contrasting historic areas, each with many important buildings, is what gives the city its unique character and saw it awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in 1995.

The Royal Mile, which lies at the heart of the Old Town is arguably one of the most famous streets in the world. Today, it is peppered with stores selling cashmere goods and hand crafted silver jewellery. However, in centuries gone by it was a different story: delving into the Old Town is like leafing through the pages of a dusty historical novel, as each era unfolds with its own legends and characters.
