Friday, Day 1
Welcome to Edinburgh, the Scottish capital - also known as Athens of the north. For those who are arriving the day before, we have a visit to the famous Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Yacht Britannia as part of the program. In the evening we then have our official welcome dinner with a welcome drink and a tour briefing.
Saturday, Day 2
Edinburgh > Fort William
Today we will first visit the Sterling Castle with its 75m high castle rock. In this castle Mary Stuart was crowned at the tender age of only 9 months as the Scottish Queen. Another important site is Glencoe, which we will reach at around noon after driving through the "Valley of Tears". Beneath the highest mountain in Great Britain - Ben Nevis (1343 m) - is our overnight stop and the entrance to the Scottish Highlands: Fort William.
Sunday, Day 3
Fort William > Ullapool
The Road to the Isles and the Glenfinnan Monument are definitely worth a stop before we visit the famous Elean Donan Castle, where the first part of "Highlander" was filmed. Our overnight stay is planned to be in Ullapool, a small fishing village. Here, so they say, the Scottish wilderness begins.
Monday, Day 4
Ullapool > Tongue
Today we experience the loneliness of highlands at first hand. The popular Reuthers Roadside Lunch provides for the bodily welfare. Another highlight are the Smoo Caves, the largest sea caves in Great Britain. We will spend the night in Tongue, which also has a castle.
Tuesday, Day 5
Tongue > Golspie
We continue on the "North Coast 500" - the Scottish response to the legendary American Route 66. In the truest sense of the word we travel on to the most northern point of the British mainland: Dunnet Head with its lighthouse. We'll take our lunchbreak a few miles further in the northernmost village of the British mainland, in John O'Groates, at the end of the road. An additional mandatory stop during this exciting day is Dunrobin Castle with its picture-book garden. The well-preserved castle is also the seat of the Sutherland Clan.
Wednesday, Day 6
Golspie > Inverness
A highlight of our Scotland trip is undoubtedly the Culloden Moor, where once the tragic battle between the Scottish clans and the English took place. Urquhart Castle, which we will also visit, has a history of more than 1500 years. Then in Fort Augustus, at the southern end of Loch Ness we will take a boatstour and maybe even the famous monster of Loch Ness, "Nessie" will welcome us...
Thursday, Day 7
Inverness > Craigellachie
Starting from Inverness we travel past Brodie Castle and Elgin Cathedral directly to the Whisky Trail in Scotland. With an extensive tour in one the oldest whisky distilleries in Scotland, the Glenfiddich Distillery, we will learn more about the Scottish whisky. There is a good reason that our overnight stay is close to the distillery.
Friday, Day 8
Craigellachie > Edinburgh
Last day of our Scotland tour. If possible, there is a foto stop at Balmoral Castle, summer residence of Queen Elizabeth II... In the evening we will celebrate our traditional Farewell Dinner. Sometimes saying goodbye is the "beginning of a wonderful friendship", so let's meet again on one of our dream tours in New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Europe or the USA.
