7 Day Tour – 380049

Day 1 Perth

  • Farmer’s Market
  • Scone Palace
  • The Black Watch Museum

Not to be confused with the city in Australia (which is in fact named after this place), Perth lies in the Scottish midlands and is popularly known as the ‘fair city’. Its history stretches back some 800 years, and is an interesting as you expect! If you arrive at the right time you can check out the extensive Perth Farmer’s Market, or the Game Conservancy Scottish Fair on the grounds of Scone Palace (also worth a visit any time of year).

DAY 2 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 3 Aviemore

  • Cairngorms
  • Loch an Eilein
  • Rothiemurchus Forest

Aviemore is a town and tourist resort, situated within the Cairngorms National Park in the Highlands of Scotland. It is in the Badenoch and Strathspey committee area, within the Highland council area.

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 Trossachs

  • Loch Lomond Cruise
  • Balloch Castle Country Park
  • Luss Village

The largest lake in Scotland and Britain, Loch Lomond forms part of Scotland’s first national park, and is arguably the best spot in the country for hiking, hillwalking, and cycling. Get your bearings and enjoy the view from Loch Lomond Shores before taking in the sights at Balloch Castle Country Park. Luss Village is worth a visit in itself for the picturesque town alone, if not for the golden beach and four walking trails that begin there.

DAY 7 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.
