  • Day 2 - Edinburgh and the Edinburgh Tattoo

    Edinburgh Tattoo

    After a morning at leisure, we set out by coach for the Bo'ness and Kinneil Railway and our trip on one of the lovingly-restored locomotives. The line takes us along the shore of the Forth and climbs into the hills, before pulling into Birkhill, a picturesque town set on a wooded incline. We continue on to Scotland's cosmopolitan capital, where we have plenty of time to enjoy dinner before settling into our seats for the highlight of our trip, the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. This musical spectacular, featuring the massed pipes and drums of the Scottish regiments, is set against the magnificent backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, perched high above the ancient city and dominating the skyline.

    Breakfast

  • Day 3 - Exploring the West Highlands

    West Highland Line

    We set off today on the enchanting West Highland Line, renowned for its incredible views across the Scottish countryside. Sit back and relax in your seat as the train carries us along the banks of rippling lochs and through verdant forests, past cascading waterfalls streaming down craggy rock-faces. Rugged peaks and untamed moorland stretch as far as the eye can see, and we reach Fort William under the looming bulk of Ben Nevis. After time for lunch, we take a boat for a wonderful cruise on Loch Linnhe. We enjoy the alternative views of the dramatic mountain scenery and the chance to spot local wildlife, before returning by coach to Glasgow through the Glencoe region and Loch Lomond.
