Day 1 & Day 2 Edinburgh

  • Edinburgh Castle
  • Mary King’s Close
  • Greyfriars Kirkyard

This stunning medieval city is the jewel in Scotland’s crown, and ever popular with visitors. Edinburgh Castle sits right in the centre on top of a craggy hill overlooking everything below, with Greyfriars Kirkyard and Mary King’s Close providing plenty more insights into this city’s spooky, creepy history. The Edinburgh arts festival in August is one of the best in the world and not to be missed.

Day 3 Aberdeen

  • Maritime museum
  • Union Street architecture
  • Aberdeen beach

Often perceived as remote and isolated from the rest of Scotland (and the world), Aberdeen is in fact a thriving cosmopolitan city and well worth a visit. Situated on the North West coast, it has an intriguing maritime history and its Maritime museum is a must see. Other attractions include the stately granite architecture of Union Street, the quaint and charming atmosphere of the old town, and if the weather is agreeable, there’s always Aberdeen beach too.

DAY 4 & DAY 5 Inverness

  • Caledonian Canal
  • Loch Ness
  • Inverness Castle

Marketed as the ‘Gateway to the Highlands’, Inverness is a picturesque town on the banks of the river Ness. There are many walks to take along the leafy river bank, leading up to the magnificent Inverness castle and beyond to the Ness islands or the Calendonian Canal towpath. Golfing, cycling, and watersports are popular activities, and this town is also home to the biggest myth of all; the Loch Ness Monster. Go searching if you dare!

Day 6 Fort William

  • Ben Nevis
  • Jacobite Steam Train
  • Loch Linnhe cruise

Sandwiched between the stunning Loch Linnhe and the foothills of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, Fort William is simply unforgettable. The town makes an excellent base for hiking either Ben Nevis or the surrounding Munroes, or for the less outdoorsy types, a cruise along Loch Linnhe is a great way to relax and spot some local wildlife (don’t worry, there’s no monster in this one). The Jacobite steam train to Mallaig is also a throwback to days gone by.
