Autumn in Scotland

From its ancient castles to luscious rolling landscapes and the echoes of bagpipes in the distance,  Scotland is undeniably intriguing.

Traverse small villages, seaside cliffs, and exquisite countryside  as we roadtrip and explore the realms of Scotland.  During this trip, we will experience the historic capital of Edinburgh, the rugged Highlands with magical medieval castles, the hauntingly beautiful Glencoe Valley, and the iconic breathtaking seascapes of the Isles of Skye.

Join us on a 6-day 6-night magical journey around Scotland and discover what dreams are made of.

Trip Summary ** this is a teaser itinerary 

 

Over the course of 6 days we will be exploring Edinburgh and the mysteries of Loch Ness. We will traverse to Urquhart Castle which is the lonely castle of Loch Ness.  Moving our way to the Highlands we will travel through valley of Glencoe and experience the mystery of Balloch Castle. 

 

We will take a detour to allow the Moray Coast to mesmerize us with the beach landscape and crashing waters on the shores of Scotland.  Spending 3 days in the Isle of Skye gives plenty of time to hike to the iconic rock formation the Old Man of Stor and see the cascading waterfalls off the Kilt Rock Sea Cliffs. Awaken to coffee on the top hillside overlooking the Cullen Mountains. Breathe in the magic of the fairy pools and become immersed in their legends.  

 

Taking in iconic Scottish landmarks while feasting on Scottish delicacies would make anyone want to book a trip to this beautiful country.

*A fuller more detailed breakout will not be available for the next few months. Enjoy the teaser.

Getting there

  • I offer discounted group airline travel out of Washington D.C as long as there is a minimum of 10 travelers participate.  This is included in the package price if you choose this option. I will make all the arrangements. You will be required to make your own travel arrangements to and from the DC airport.   All airlines will be well known, ones I have personally flown on. Seats will be chosen after ticket is issues which is usually 60 days prior to trip.  Group seats are all coach with options to upgrade at your own expense after tickets are issues.   Group airline requires a $200 non refundable deposit to secure your ticket which is due 60 days after initial deposit date. There will be a payment schedule if needed to pay your airline ticket off.  Once all group tickets are paid for, they are all issued to each individual traveler.

  • Typical group savings have airfares with bags included and up to a 50% savings over individual travel. We do need 10 people to participate in group travel in order to secure the rates.  If we do not have 10 people airline tickets are booked by the individual traveller and pricing is variable dependent on airline travel costs. 

 

  • If you book your own airline ticket you will need to ensure you are in Scotland for pick up with the group by 11am on September 17, 2020. 

 

  • If you are not able to get to Washington DC for air travel, I will be more than happy to search airline fare close to our group rates, get you to the destination and meet up with the group
