Bonnie Scotland ( GG)

7 Day Tour from Glasgow to Edinburgh

 2025 Tour Details »2024 Tour Details

Rolling hills and rugged coastlines, mythical creatures, and elusive monsters, quiet fairways, and boisterous bagpipes, this tour of Scotland is a study in stark contrasts among the most beautiful of classrooms. Hitting the highpoints of the Highlands from Glasgow to Edinburgh, you’ll cruise on beautiful Loch Lomond, ferry to the dramatic Isle of Skye, and visit the home of golf, St. Andrews. More lush landscapes await as you search for the mysterious Nessie along the banks of Loch Ness, stand before the famous Glenfinnan viaduct featured in the Harry Potter films, and swoon over the 13th-century Eilean Donan Castle nestled on a tidal island and featured in numerous films. If green means go, you have the go-ahead to pack your tams, tartans, and knickers for vibrant and verdant Scotland.

" I always tell people that I want them to go home having learned all about our beautiful and historic countries, but also having enjoyed themselves. You're among friends here, and I will look after you from arrival to departure!"

" What makes being a Tour Director fulfilling? The look on people's faces when they see where their ancestors come from, or the realisation that kicks in when history and location collide and it all starts to fall into place...the characters, anecdotes, and laughter. I was once asked to be Best Man for a couple who chose to get married on one of my tours. I'll never forget it because they made the male coach driver the Maid of Honor!"

Tour Director -  ANDREW HYND

" What a great job I have! Traveling with you throughout our great countries. Every day brings new sights and sounds. From the sweeping mountain landscapes of Glencoe or the stunning coastlines of Dingle to the higgledy-piggledy streets of York or incomparable Edinburgh. I am so proud to show them off to you and share the human stories behind our history and the truth behind the headlines."
