Scottish Highlands Escape (KAT)

6 Day Tour from Edinburgh to Glasgow

2023 Tour Details

Take an exciting Caledonian adventure through the highlands from Edinburgh to Glasgow on this guided vacation in Scotland! Enjoy the moors even more by visiting during the off season, with fewer crowds and lower prices. Begin in Edinburgh to visit the Castle and admire Scotland’s Crown Jewels. Visit the home of golf at St. Andrews. Stop in the Victorian mountain resort of Pitlochry to admire its Scottish Baronial architecture and take a spirited tour of a whisky distillery. Spend the night in the Highland capital of Inverness, and prepare for a day of glorious Scottish scenery crossing the battleground at Culloden Moor on your drive along the shores of Loch Ness to Fort William. Admire even more beautifully rugged landscapes from Glen Coe to Oban on the western coast of Scotland.

Travel through the serene glens, lush forests, and rushing rivers of The Trossachs—Scotland’s first national park. Relish in the lovely views of Loch Lomond. Take a drive through Glasgow to see its 12th-century cathedral, stately university buildings, and elegant Georgian squares built in the heyday of the tobacco barons. Finally, gather with your traveling companions, and raise a glass to this bonnie jaunt of a guided vacation in Scotland.
