Our tour begins in the exciting capital of Scotland; Edinburgh, where you will stay in an excellent hotel right on the Royal Mile for two nights, enjoying a panoramic tour of the city & Edinburgh Castle; and visits to the Scottish Parliament, The Royal Yacht Brittania, and the Museum of Scotland.
From there, we travel north to see “The Bonnie Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond”; the magnificent Scottish Highlands, and Loch Ness, spending two nights in Inverness, known as “the Capital of the Highlands”. We continue on to visit Stirling and its famous castle, as well as an overnight in Glasgow before taking a ferry across the sea to Ireland for the second half of the tour.
We spend two nights in Belfast, with a city tour and visits to the spectacular North Antrim Coast; Giant’s Causeway; and Bushmills Distillery.
