What shall I see

From Edinburgh, we head out of the city to the charming village of Roslin, making our first stop at one of Scotland’s most extraordinary buildings - Rosslyn Chapel*.

The Chapel’s worldwide fame increased thanks to Dan Brown’s bestselling novel ‘The Da Vinci Code’. Described as the “Library in Stone”, the inside walls of Rosslyn Chapel are adorned with thousands of ancient carvings, each with a story of its own. You can also learn of the myths and legends surrounding the chapel, including tales of the Knights Templar.

Leaving Rosslyn, we continue into the heart of the Scottish Borders, an area rich in hills, valleys, rivers and moorland, as well as being the traditional home to Scottish rugby.

We travel to the historic town of Melrose, birthplace of the game of Rugby Sevens and location of Melrose Abbey, founded in 1136 AD, and said to be the burial place of the casket containing the heart of Robert the Bruce. Here we stop for lunch and have free time to explore the picturesque town of Melrose and its historic Abbey*.

On our return journey, we travel via the village of St. Boswells and pause for a photo stop at Scott’s View, where we can enjoy glorious scenic views overlooking the valley of the River Tweed, reputed to be one of the favourite beauty spots of the famous Scottish author, Sir Walter Scott. Our journey north takes us to Pencaitland, where we visit the charming Glenkinchie Distillery, one of the few Lowland whisky distilleries in Scotland. Here you can enjoy “a tour and a taste”, learn more about “the water of life” and sample some of Glenkinchie’s finest malts, before returning to Edinburgh.
