It is also one of the most visited cultural landmarks in the UK.

Famed for its links to Royalty and historical warfare, you'll have an opportunity to explore the city and take in the amazing architecture, which speak for population’s past. The Jedburgh Abbey ruins are incredible and a visit is highly recommended.

As you journey through southern Scotland, relax and embrace the beauty of the landscape drifting past you. The city of Edinburgh awaits.

Day 03
Edinburgh

Edinburgh

Hotel: Brittania Hotel or similar

Today, you are free to explore the city as you wish, and there is so much to see and do. Known as the cultural capital of Scotland, Edinburgh is blessed with stunning grey stone buildings, along with architecture, art galleries, memorials and higher education faculties. Take a step back in time and wander around the authentic, unchanged cobbled streets of the Royal Mile, and meander down to the Grass Market, to a row of pubs where public hangings used to entertain the crowds.

Edinburgh Castle is well worth the entry fee, and requires a few hours to explore and learn about Scottish history and royalty - there are wonderful views from the top! For those wishing to shop for souvenirs, Princes Street attracts shoppers from all over the world. The city comes alive at night, in the bars and pubs in the city centre, so why not enjoy a pint or a traditional whisky with the friendly locals?

Just over half way through your Great Britain tour, and you're heading north to the Scottish Highlands, where we offer you an optional excursion which could change your life!

Once back on the road, prepare for boldness and the symbol of the highlands.

Rising out of the ground like a waking giant, behold the grandeur of Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain. Whilst in the region, you will visit Glencoe, a spectacular glen (Scottish for a deep valley in the Highlands) where the massacre of Glencoe took place in 1692, one of the most fascinating yet saddest stories in Scotland's history. Your day will wind down with a well-earned whiskey tasting at one of Scotland's oldest, licensed whiskey distilleries in Fort William, before continuing on to your hotel in the Scottish Highlands. Enjoy your final evening in this amazing country.
