Overview

Travel through 8,000 years of Scottish history from Medieval Edinburgh to the majestic Orkney Islands and Skye.

Travel to Europe often requires an overnight flight. Please arrange for flights to arrive on or before Day 1.

  1. Welcome to Scotland—land of legends and romance, from the great cultural cities in the south, to the dramatic mountains and misty lochs of the Highlands. On arrival at Edinburgh airport, transfers depart for your hotel at 9 am, 11 am and 1 pm. Then the rest of the day is yours to relax before joining your Travel Director for a Welcome Dinner with wine. On select departures, you will also attend the spectacular Military Tattoo—colorful mix of pipes and drums, dance and display, set against the floodlit backdrop of Edinburgh Castle

    meal(s):Dinner with Wine
    hotel:Malmaison Hotel
  2. Join a Local Expert to see the highlights of the city. Drive along Princes Street to the ornate Scott Memorial, then wander the 18th-century New Town with its neoclassical Georgian façades. In the Old Town, visit Edinburgh Castle, home of Mons Meg, the Stone of Destiny and Scotland’s Crown Jewels, the Honors of Scotland. At the bottom of the Royal Mile stands the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official Scottish residence of the Queen. The rest of the day is at leisure; why not visit the art treasures in the National Gallery?

    meal(s):Breakfast
    hotel:Malmaison Hotel
  3. Cross the Firth of Forth into Fife and journey to St. Andrews, passing the Old Course, home of golf since its creation in the 15th century. Enjoy free time to explore. Perhaps stroll to West Sands Beach where the famous 'Chariots of Fire' scene was filmed. Alternately, wander to St. Andrews University where the love story of Kate Middleton meeting her Prince Charming began. Cross the Tay and journey to the charming Victorian resort town of Pitlochry, famous for its salmon run. Continue via Blair Atholl and pass the Grampian Mountains on the way to the sparkling Spey Valley. Stop at Ballindalloch Castle and Gardens, one of the only occupied castles in Scotland, inhabited by the same family since the 16th century. As guests of the castle, you will be treated to an authentic Farm-to-Table experience, in the tradition of a Scottish Tea and Scones. Continue to Inverness, where your luxury hotel is set within four acres of manicured grounds offering the very best in Highland hospitality

    meal(s):Breakfast, Afternoon Tea, Dinner
    hotel:Kingsmills Hotel
  4. See Culloden Moor in the morning, where Bonnie Prince Charlie’s Jacobite army was crushed in 1746. Visit the Culloden Visitor Center before continuing along the shores of Loch Ness. Keep your eyes peeled for the legendary monster! Next, follow the rugged coast north to the fishing port of Wick. Pause at the Old Pulteney Distillery to taste a wee dram of whisky and learn about the production of this national drink.

    meal(s):Breakfast, Dinner
    hotel:Pentland Hotel
  5. Start the day by driving to the most northern point of the British mainland, John O’Groats. Board the ferry to the beautiful Orkney Islands where the countryside is breathtakingly majestic and the tranquility supports a quieter pace of life. Here the hardy locals say they live 'below the wind and above the water.' Your Local Expert accompanies you as you visit the 5,000-year-old village of Skara Brae, the mysterious Ring of Brodgar, Kirkwall and the small chapel built by Italian prisoners during World War II. Return to your Thurso hotel for dinner.

    meal(s):Breakfast, Dinner
    hotel:Pentland Hotel
  6. Travel through stunning, pristine landscapes along the northern coast with its white sandy beaches, and further inland to misty valleys and glens, lochs and rushing waters. Then it’s 'Over the Sea to Skye,' the largest and most beautiful island of the Inner Hebrides. On the way to Broadford, hear romantic tales of how young Flora MacDonald helped rescue Bonnie Prince Charlie to see the dramatic Cuillin Hills.

    meal(s):Breakfast, Dinner
    hotel:Dunollie Hotel
  7. Explore this wild and beautiful island on your own, before crossing to the Kyle of Lochalsh. Stop for a photo at remote Eilean Donan Castle, which under a clear sky offers a perfect reflection in its loch. Move on to the World War II Commando Memorial where there is a fine view of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain. You’ll enjoy more spectacular scenery en route to the Valley of Glencoe, its dramatic peaks still echoing with the ghastly cries of massacred clansmen. In the evening, enjoy market-fresh Scottish ingredients and wine as you get together with your newfound friends for a sumptuous Celebration Dinner. Don’t be surprised if, by the end of the evening, you’re 'Toasting to the Lassies' or singing 'Auld Lang Syne.'

    meal(s):Breakfast, Dinner with Wine
    hotel:Ballachulish Hotel/Isles of Glencoe Hotel & Leisure Center
  8. Spend time around peaceful Loch Lomond, 'Queen of Scottish Lochs' according to Sir Walter Scott and the largest in Great Britain. Perhaps experience the beauty and tranquillity of the loch with an optional cruise before continuing to Glasgow. An orientation drive through the city will show you the grand public buildings, including George Square and St. Mungo’s Cathedral. Then the rest of the afternoon is at your leisure to explore as you wish.

    meal(s):Breakfast
    hotel:Holiday Inn Glasgow—City Center Theatreland
  9. Your travels come to an end after breakfast. Departure transfers arrive at Glasgow Airport at 7 am and 9 am.

    meal(s):Breakfast

Service rating : GET Travel operated by Insight Vacations was exceptional! First and foremost, our Tour Guide, Michael Doughty was outstanding! Michael made us laugh, was filled with historical details regarding the areas we were visiting and made everyone feel like one big happy family. Steve, our driver, did a superb job maneuvering along those narrow country roads! The itinerary was perfect especially the Orkney Islands and the Tour Guide for that day's trip. The Isle of Skye was again another treat including the Tour Guide. I would not change a thing about the trip except the hotel Dunollie in Broadford which we found less than satisfactory.
Vacation : We were constantly on the go, and therefore, felt we got our moneys worth. Another big part again in feeling that way was our Tour Guide, Michael Doughty! Well worth the cost!

From the first time I called the office to inquire all the way thru' to the end, everyone was efficient, friendly, kind (when I asked dumb questions), & helpful. Not only was I sent a complete itinerary before the tour started, but was also sent an electrical adaptor! And it worked! The tour was terrific, the bus was comfortable, as were the hotels; the food was really good; the tour guides were exceptional. All in all I really enjoyed the trip & have no complaints at all about the staff, the booking, the trip, or anything else.

Service rating : It was an excellent trip with one exception, perhaps a little more free time in the villages. Here is an idea, a box lunch on the bus that we can eat for lunch then have more time to actually visit a village rather than consume most of the time ordering and eating lunch!

Great suggestions! We will be sure to share them with the Quality and Planning teams fro future trips.  THank you so much for taking the time to write.

  • U.S. citizens traveling to Scotland must have a current passport that is valid for six months beyond the conclusion of their trip. You can find information on how to apply for a passport here, and how to renew a passport here. No visa is required for U.S. citizens entering Scotland.

  • The currency in Scotland is the Pound (£). While it’s a good idea to bring some pounds for when you first arrive in Scotland, you’ll usually find a better exchange rate in your destination.  The most convenient way to obtain cash is to use your ATM card at local banks. We recommend you also bring a valid credit card for purchases while you are traveling.  It is important that you inform your financial institutions of your travel plans before you leave home so they don’t flag your purchases as potentially fraudulent charges.

  • Scotland’s culture is based on the country’s rich and colorful past, with a long-standing passion for festivals, myths, bagpipes, art, castles, and literature.  Highlights to explore include the city of Edinburgh, St. Andrews, Glasgow, and Stirling Castle.

  • Food and drink in Scotland goes far beyond haggis, porridge, and whiskey.  Other specialties to try include kippers, fish and chips, Scotch broth, smoked salmon, sausages, shortbread, and Dundee cake.  For a meal that’s inexpensive and authentic, try a pub meal with a pint of Scottish ale.

  • The weather in Scotland is mild, moist, and quickly changeable. We suggest packing a variety of lightweight clothing items that can be layered to save space in your suitcase and give you more options for how to dress. Important items to bring include sturdy walking shoes and a waterproof jacket with a hood. For more helpful information please refer to our Packing Tips & Packing List.

  • Tipping is less common in Scotland than in the U.S. When dining in a restaurant, it’s appropriate, although not required, to leave a tip of 5-10 percent.  Leave your gratuity on the table rather than adding it to your credit card receipt to ensure that your waiter receives it.

    At the end of your guided vacation, it’s customary to offer your motor coach driver and Travel Director a gratuity. We recommend £2.50 per person/per day for your driver and £4.00 per person/per day for your Travel Director.  Recommended gratuity for a Local Host and Local Specialist is 1-2 pounds per person, paid at the conclusion of each guided visit.  A convenient option is to prepay your tips before your departure.

  • Baggage on our trips is restricted to one large suitcase per person with dimensions not exceeding 30x19x10 inches and a maximum weight of 50 pounds. You are also permitted one piece of hand luggage, which should be small enough to fit under your coach seat or on the small overhead shelf compartment. Please note that luggage with an adjustable handle and wheels will not fit in the overhead compartment of the coach. Hotel porterage is included in your vacation.

  • You will need to be comfortable on your feet, walking and standing for up to three hours in various weather conditions.  All of our vacations involve walking, often on cobblestone and uneven surfaces in historic city centers.  In order to get the most out of your vacation you need to be able to comfortably walk 1-3 miles unassisted in one day, be in good condition and be able to keep pace with the group. 

    If you need any medications, it is important that you bring enough to last you the whole trip and keep them in your carry-on bag while you travel.

  • We highly recommend our optional Travel Protection Plan, which allows you to cancel for any reason up to 24 hours before departure. The plan also includes trip interruption, baggage loss or delay, and medical and emergency assistance. Click here for a summary of coverage details, terms and conditions.
