    It’s not just about kilts and bagpipes! From the charming UNESCO World Heritage-designated city of Edinburgh to the dramatic land and seascapes of the Isle of Skye; from castles both intact and in moody ruins to Scotch Whisky distilleries to edgy and contemporary Glasgow . . . Scotland packs a punch with its steep history, strong cultural traditions, jaw-dropping scenery, a very tasty culinary scene, and lovely first-rate accommodations along the way.

    • Edinburgh – The culturally and historically rich capital — one of Europe’s handsomest — with iconic sights such as its striking medieval castle, the Royal Mile, Old Town, and Georgian architecture 
    • Isle of Skye – An island of sheer beauty with the misty Cuillin Mountains, rocky shores, hidden beaches, and shady glens, as well as a modern arts and crafts scene 
    • Stirling Castle — Holding fort over the passage between the Lowlands and the Highlands, home of the Stuart kings with spectacular views over a gentle countryside 
    • Scotch Whisky Distillery – An informative tour in a lovely setting to refine an appreciation of Scotland’s national drink, and enjoying a wee dram, of course 
    • Glasgow — One of Britain’s most intriguing cities, sophisticated yet earthy, with handsome Victorian buildings, great shopping, and warm people
    • Road to the Isles — Considered one of the loveliest drives in Scotland with mountain views, shimmering lochs, historical places, and steeped in Jacobite history 
    • Rosslyn Chapel – An exquisite and ornate 15th-century cathedral-like masterpiece that is a testament to the skills of its medieval sculptors 
    • Eilean Donan Castle – Postcard-perfect, standing on an islet set among three lochs and arguably the most photogenic of Scotland’s myriad castles
