Itinerary


DAY 1

Arrival in Edinburgh and take a panoramic sightseeing tour of this magnificent and historic city en route to your hotel.  This evening you’ll immediately get to know one of Scotland’s most famous exports on a tour of the Scottish Whisky Experience where your expert guide will give you a real insight into this most beguiling of spirits ending with a tasty Scottish Themed Dinner accompanied, if you wish, by more whisky tasting!

DAY 2

Full day sightseeing in Edinburgh. Starting at Edinburgh Castle, which sits in a prominent defensive position on a volcanic rock and dominates the city, providing amazing views in all directions. The Castle is the home to the Scottish Crown Jewels and the famous Stone of Destiny, the ancient crowning seat of the Scottish monarchs. Close to the castle is the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre, where you can enjoy a whisky-barrel ride during which the secret of production of single malt whisky will be revealed. Afterwards enjoy a walk along the Royal Mile to St Giles’ Cathedral the historic city church of Edinburgh, with its famed crown spire and Chapel of the Order of the Thistle (Scotland’s chivalric company of knights headed by the Queen). Continue further down the Royal Mile to the Royal Palace of Holyroodhouse, closely associated with Scotland’s turbulent past, including the life of Mary, Queen of Scots, who lived there between 1561 and 1567. Successive kings and queens made the Palace of Holyroodhouse the premier royal residence in Scotland. Now it is still the official residence of the Royal Family when in Scotland. See the Scottish Parliament building with its renowned exterior facade. Other highlights include the memorial to Sir Walter Scott, majestic Princes’ Street and the elegant squares and streets of the neo-classical Georgian “New Town” with their top class shopping.   Time to freshen up before an atmospheric Spirit of Scotland dinner and show this evening.
