DAY 1: After joining your holiday coach, we make our way northwards with suitable stops for lunch and refreshments. We arrive at our hotel in Glasgow early evening, in time for our first evening meal together. Porterage is included.
DAY 2 (All holidays) - Edinburgh – Capital Scotland & Military Tattoo:
Today we make our visit to the city of Edinburgh, with plenty of time for both shopping and sightseeing before attending the tattoo. Edinburgh Castle has dominated its surroundings with majesty for centuries. The Royal Mile is actually more than a mile by 107 yards. It starts at the Castle entrance and continues to the gates of Holyrood Palace. (Entrances not included). During the day you may like to join our optional city tour. Full details from your driver.
This evening we climb the ramparts of Edinburgh Castle and take our seats (Mid price entrance to Tattoo included) for the world famous Tattoo. As hush falls and darkness deepens, the great oak gates of the Castle sweep open and the swell of the pipes and drums cracks through the night sky. As the massed bands march out in their hundreds across the drawbridge, feel the hairs on the back of your neck stand up! NB: No evening meal included tonight.
DAY 3 (4 Day Holidays only) - Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park:
A full-day included excursion along the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. Ben Lomond stands guard over Loch Lomond, the largest expanse of freshwater in Great Britain and the romantic centrepiece of the National Park. In the north the loch is deep and narrow, bound by steep-sided mountains whilst, further south, it spills into an island studded panorama. Our journey today takes us along the west bank, via Tarbet, Arrochar, Loch Long, Gare Loch to Helensburgh.
LAST DAY: After breakfast, we return homewards, arriving back at your local joining points early to mid evening.
