Castles, gardens and scenery fit for Kings & Queens – we visit and explore Scotland’s great Castles, Lochs and Gardens including a chance to explore the castle and grounds at Duntreath Castle with Lady Edmonstone.

 

Highlights

 

Edinburgh   |   Royal Yacht Britannia   |   Royal Botanic Garden   |   Guided Tour of Duntreath Castle & Gardens   |   Stirling Castle   |   Cruise on the Loch Katrine   |   Glengoyne Distillery

 

DAY ONE

We depart from your home with our exclusive door to door pick up service and travel north to Scotland with comfort stops enroute, arriving at your hotel late afternoon.  Time to relax before joining our hosts for a welcome drink before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

We travel to Edinburgh, Scotland’s cosmopolitan capital for our visit to the Royal Yacht Britannia, to discover what life was like on board the Queens floating royal residence.  Today we also have time to stroll through the remarkable landscapes of Asia, America and Africa, thanks to the exotic plants in the Royal Botanic Garden where there are over 70 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds.

 

DAY THREE

A morning visit to Duntreath Castle and Gardens, this magical place has been the family home of the Edmonstone family since 1435 and our visit is hosted by Lady Edmonstone as she escorts us on a tour of the castle and stunning gardens.  No trip to Scotland would be complete without a visit to a local distillery and for this tour we visit the Glengoyne Distillery, probably Scotland’s most beautiful distillery with its waterfall and hidden glen.

 

DAY FOUR

We make our way to Stirling Castle, one of the most important castles in Scotland, in a magnificent setting on high volcanic rock.  Here you can discover a world of colour, splendour and glorious craftsmanship as you explore the world of Scotland’s Renaissance Kings and Queens.  This afternoon we enjoy a cruise on board the ‘Lady of the Lake’ on Loch Katrine, with afternoon cream tea served on board as you sail the loch.

 

DAY FIVE

This morning we enjoy a final breakfast before we bid farewell to our hosts and begin our journey home, with comfort stops enroute.
