What shall I see

Our amazing tour starts from Edinburgh where your driver-guide will tell you all magnificent stories and history of Scotland. Learn of the battles fought and won. The Kings and monarchy who shaped Scotland. You’ll then drive south through the Scottish Borders, pausing for a photo stop at Melrose Abbey - widely regarded as one of the most beautiful ruins in Europe. Robert the Bruce’s heart is thought to be buried at the Abbey and it is the final resting place of a number of other Scottish Kings.

The star attraction of the tour is Alnwick Castle*. This is the second largest inhabited castle in England and has been lived in for over 700 years. It is full of fascinating things to see and mysteries to uncover. You may recognize it as a location from some of the Harry Potter films.

Customer questions and answers

Q: Is Holy island part of the tour? You write about several 'photo opportunities'. Does that mean they're just quick stops to take photos, or do we have time to look around? Will there be a stop in a town or village where we have the opportunity to have lunch, or do we have to bring our own lunch? Thank you so much for answering. Kind regards, Kelly asked on March 24, 2019 by Kelly
A: The Holy Isle is not part of this tour. You can bring your own lunch but there will also be a place to purchase food. Photo stops are simply stops with interesting views with the possibility get off the bus and take a photo and get back on. The main focus of the tour is Alnwick castle for you get almost 3 hours there which will also be lunch time.
