After a luxurious breakfast at your hotel, you can look forward to a day of touring and uncover much of the rich history that Edinburgh has to offer. You will be met by a personal guide who will take you on a walking tour of the capital’s most famous landmarks, such as The Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh Castle and the Scott Monument.

One of the city’s marvelled at assets is the Old Town, where you’ll have the opportunity to take a step back through the centuries and lose yourself in the labyrinth of closes and wynds with their bloody haunting tales.

The luxurious Balmoral Hotel will be where you reside for the evening. Meanwhile, you can spend the remainder of the day relaxing and exploring the city at your leisure.

Luxury Accommodation: The Balmoral Hotel

Your Journey:

After breakfast you will leave Edinburgh and travel west to explore the Linlithgow’s most historic ruins, Linlithgow Palace. First built in the 15th century, the palace was a place of residence for the monarchs of Scotland. Linlithgow Palace endured a turbulent history, with both English and Scottish armies fighting fiercely over it throughout the centuries.

Once you have fully explored Linlithgow Palace, your journey will continue westward, passing the famous Kelpie Sculptures and on to one of Scotland’s most historic battlegrounds, Bannockburn. Arguably one of the most iconic and defining moments in the Scottish Wars of Independence, here is where Scotland’s Robert the Bruce led the Scots to a victory which ultimately played a significant role in regaining independence.

You will learn more about The Scottish Wars of Independence by visiting the Wallace Monument. With it essentially being a tower standing on the shoulder of Abbey Craig, this was built in remembrance of Scotland’s legendary hero, William Wallace.  Next on the list is a tour of one of Scotland’s most iconic castles, Stirling Castle. After revelling in its grandeur you will return back to the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh for the evening.

Visiting the famous Oban Distillery, one of Scotland’s smallest distilleries, will be the first activity on your list. After your whisky experience you will travel to McCaig’s Tower, a 19th century folly based on the Colosseum in Rome, where you will get the best view of Oban.

Once you have soaked in Oban’s beautiful landscape, you will venture into the town itself for some lunch at the award-winning seafood restaurant, Ee-Usk.

Powerfully emotive, drenched in history and Highland blood, this is where the Jacobite Rising came to a tragic end.

A visit to the ancient Cawdor Castle and Gardens is next on the list. Arguably most famous for its literary connection with Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Cawdor Castle is a real historical gem that will give you an insight into what life was like in the 15th century. Afterwards you will make your way back to Inverness to stay at the 5 Star Ness Walk Hotel, on the banks of the River Ness..
