"THE BIRTH-PLACE OF VALOUR, THE COUNTRY OF WORTH; WHEREVER I WANDER, WHEREVER I ROVE, THE HILLS OF THE HIGHLANDS FOR EVER I LOVE."
-Robert Burns (1759-1796)
Glorious Scotland is a country that never fails to delight, and with this in mind Transcendent Travel is pleased to unveil "Glorious Scotland" including visits to the Highlands, iconic castles, gardens, and sites that make Scotland such a spectacular country to explore.
The tour will begin in Edinburgh where guests will stay conveniently on the legendary Royal Mile. Our time in Edinburgh will include an exclusive private tour of the Palace of Holyroodhouse and an unforgettable gala evening onboard Britannia the former yacht of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Following our time in Edinburgh, we will head to the iconic Glamis Castle as well as the magnificent Dunnottar Castle on Scotland's rugged coastline. Then we head into the Highlands where we will stay for two nights in Killdrummy Castle, regularly voted one of the UK's top castle hotels. While in the Highlands we will discover the lovely village of Ballater, the glorious gardens at Crathes Castle as well as an unforgettable visit to Balmoral ― the private and cherished Highland home of the Royal Family.
Our time in Scotland wouldn't be complete without a visit to Stirling Castle, where we will explore the famous castle used for the crowning of many of Scotland's Kings and Queens. Along the way, expect some unique touches such as live Scottish music, local culinary delights, whiskey, and all the things that make Scotland special. Memorable traveling is all about creating a blend of unique experiences, paired with delicious meals and superior accommodations. In this tour you can be assured of the combination of all three ― alongside our personal touches, which will ensure your enjoyment of the entire experience.
At the end of the tour, join us on an optional 3-day tour, "Whiskey ― The National Drink of Scotland: A 3-day Heritage Tour", which will take participants into the heart of Scotland's Whiskey regions, including VIP tastings and behind the-scenes access. Learn more about this optional experience on page 10. I do hope you will join us for these memorable tours, where we will explore together the places that make Scotland such a wonderful country.
