Drive North East, crossing the beautiful region of Fife, to arrive in the medieval city of St Andrews. St Andrew is the patron Saint of Scotland, and according to legend, his remains were washed up on the Fife coast. It is also the golf world capital with its prestigious Old Course where many celebrities came to play, like Tiger Woods or Sean Connery.
This city is also the home to the oldest university in Scotland. Explore the streets and visit the castle and cathedral ruins. These beautiful buildings, headquarters of Scottish catholic church, were destroyed during the protestant reformation.

In the afternoon, continue your trip North. Take a stop to admire one of the most beautiful castle of Scotland: Glamis Castle, home of the Earl and Countess of Strathmore and Kinghorne. Drive along the coast to the small harbour of Stonehaven, and enjoy a photo break at Dunnotar Castle, built on the cliff over the sea, and used in many films as Macbeth or Brave. Finally, the last day's destination leads to Aberdeen, the biggest fishing harbour of Scotland.
Dinner and overnight at the hotel.


In the morning enjoy a panoramic tour of Aberdeen: the University, the harbour, the cathedral, Duthie Park. Continue through the valley of Spey, home to almost half of all the Scottish
distilleries. Stop for a distillery tour to discover the steps of whisky distillation and enjoy a tasting experience. Carry on your journey to Inverness. This medieval city is considered the capital of the Highlands and the heart of Scottish rebellions. Finish your day by visiting a kilt factory: this traditional cloth of Highlands will have no more secrets for you.

Dinner and overnight at the
hotel in Inverness region.


Drive west to the coast and stop at Eilean Donan. Situated on an island at the site where three large lochs meet and surrounded by a majestic landscape, this historic castle, owned by Clan
MacRae, is now one of the most visited and significant attractions in the Scottish Highlands.

Continue to the most mysterious place in Scotland: the Isle of Skye. With its majestic mountain scenery, stunning landscapes and dramatic coastlines, Skye is home to some of Scotland’s most iconic landscapes. You will go from lakes to moor to admire untouched nature of this scenic island. Before crossing the bridge back to the Scottish continent, take a picture stop at Kyleakin Castle, on top of the peninsular hill, with mountains on the back.

Dinner and overnight in your hotel in Inverness region.


In the morning, discover the Loch Ness, famous in the world for its mysterious resident: Nessie. You will visit the magnificent Urquhart Castle on the banks of the loch, which remains an impressive fortress despite its ruinous state. Once one of Scotland's largest castles, Urquhart has left only ruins like a tower house that offers a magnificent view of the famous lake and Great Glen. Drive south to Fort William. Stop in this lovely city nested at the foot of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain of United Kingdom. In the afternoon, you will go through Glen Coe.
This romantic deep valley was carved out centuries ago by icy glaciers and volcanic explosions. It is known to be the place of Massacre of Glencoe, where Jacobite members of the Macdonald clan where killed by British soldiers in 17th century. Nowadays, Glen Coe is one of the most beautiful and other-worldly places in Scotland. It's even featured in films such as
James Bond's Skyfall and several Harry Potter movies. Finish the day in Tydrum area, at the doors of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.
Dinner and overnight at the hotel.


Start your day with a photo stop at Loch Lomond. This Scottish lake, in the middle of Trossach moutains, is the largest stretch of water in Great Britain by area. Drive to Stirling, where
William Wallace, aka Braveheart, led the Scottish clans against British soldiers in 1292. This battle was followed by King Robert of Bruce’s victory in 1314 at Bannockburn battle and was the first step of Scottish independence. The William Wallace Monument, which proudly sits outside the town of Stirling, commemorates this national hero. Visit Stirling Castle, built on a volcanic
stone overlooking the city. This medieval castle is a great symbol of Scottish independence and a source of national pride. It was the seat of Scottish monarchy during centuries. The famous Mary, Queen of Scots was crowned in the chapel, years before her tragic doom. Many knights and foreign ambassadors once streamed to the Royal Court to revel in the splendour of its walls. Take the time to relax with a traditional afternoon after your visit. Drive to Edinburgh.
