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.
On arrival in Edinburgh/Glasgow Airport, pick up self-drive car and start your journey. You will drive through the area known as the Trossachs in the heart of Scotland. Make a stop at Stirling Castle – Stirling has many reminders of the famous William Wallace, star of the film “Braveheart”. Continue around the scenic Loch Lomond and through the Argyll Forest one of the most beautiful areas of Scotland. Make a stop at Inveraray on the banks of Loch Fyne where you can visit Inveraray which tells the tale of prison life in the 18th & 19th centuries. Continue north to the Oban area for overnight.
The largest of the Hebrides, the Isle of Skye is awe-inspiring and enchanting. Spend lazy afternoons wandering through quaint seaside villages like Broadford, Kyleakin, or the island’s capital Portree. Get in touch with nature on some exhilarating hill walks – look out for the Old Man of Storr and the Quirang, rock formations straight from the pages of a fantasy novel. Neist Point lighthouse, the Fairy Glen, and MacLeod’s Maidens (the highest cliffs in the UK), are also well worth checking out.
After breakfast explore Oban making a visit to McCaigs Tower from where you can see the island of Mull and beyond on a clear day. Departing Oban journey north to Fort William via Appin passing on your way Castle Stuart set on its own island. Fort William nestles at the foot of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland. Take a trip on the Anoch Mor Gondola and enjoy some magnificent views across to the West and East coasts of Scotland. From Fort William travel northeast through the Great Glen towards Inverness. En-route you will travel along the Caledonian Canal which links Fort William and Inverness and of which Loch Ness forms a part. Travel along the banks of this famous loch keeping an eye open for the famous monster “Nessie”. Overnight in the Inverness area
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).
