Visit storied isles such as Skye and Mull, feel the ambience on Iona (Scotland’s most holy place), and enjoy the whisky on Islay, home of Scotland’s most famous and distinctive whiskies.
We travel all the way to the Outer Hebrides, visit Fingal’s Cave, enjoy the ‘Harry Potter’ steam train ride, and look for the Loch Ness monster. Inbetween times, we visit some distilleries, travel on 11 ferries, tour some old castles, stone circles (including Scotland’s answer to Stonehenge), stately homes, and – most of all – have a marvelous shared experience with a small group of like-minded fellow Travel Insiders.
The tour departs in early June 2017, and the main itinerary spans 11 days and 10 nights.
We’ve pre and post tour options that feature experiences as varied as a stay at a World Heritage Industrial Revolution site in a converted mill, a night in a 700+ year old castle (yes, parts of it are indeed haunted), a visit to the mysterious Rosslyn Chapel with links to the Holy Grail and Knights Templar (made famous in ‘The Da Vinci Code’ book), and even some time ‘south of the border’ including a steam train ride from a lovely English market town to the seaside town of Whitby, where Dracula is said to have landed in England.
Depending on how many people participate, the main tour price could be as low as $2945. Full details can be seen here.
