Welcome to Scotland! You will be met at the airport by your chauffeur and transferred to your hotel.

Next is a guided tour of Edinburgh Castle, perched high atop a dormant volcano. You can see the Scottish Crown Jewels, Mons Meg, the Great Hall, and more.

At your leisure, continue traveling north, stopping in your choice of towns along the way. In Perth, you can visit Branklyn Garden or Scone Palace.
