Sir Walter Scott described Perthshire as "The Fairest Portion of the Northern Kingdom.' As you travel along its rolling hills, lush forests, and rumbling rivers it's easy to see why.


Day 1. Arrival into Edinburgh

Upon arrival into Scotland you will be warmly welcomed by your private driver-guide and escorted to your pristine luxury vehicle. From your Glasgow/Edinburgh arrival you will embark on a short panoramic tour through the city before venturing into the countryside to your Luxury Country Hotel for the evening.

Day 2. Relax & Reconnect

After a leisurely Scottish Breakfast, you may wish to venture to the fabulous hotel Spa Facilities for some calming relaxation and a Spa Treatment of your choice. The hotel team will be at your service to help you re-energise, re-discover or simply relax your mind, body and soul. After a morning of relaxation and light lunch you will have the chance to enjoy some fresh air and a calming outdoor activity with some local Fishing. On return to the hotel, you will have the evening at your leisure ahead of a days sightseeing.



Day 3. Countryside & History Tour

Your private driver-guide will return to your hotel to introduce you to the surrounding countryside highlights. Through the rolling hills of Perthshire you will soon notice Stirling Castle on the horizon which dominates the skyline and takes visitors to the heart of the nation’s independence. From the castle ramparts you can see the sites of many historical battlefields, including the historically significant Battle of Bannockburn site, which you will visit next. You may wish to take a light lunch to enjoy the Bannockburn Centre’s local produce. Following lunch you will visit the more humble fortifications of Doune Castle, recently featured in Outlander and Game of Thrones. Once your historical interests are satisfied, you will venture to a local Distillery to appease your taste buds with a tour and tasting before blending your own Scotch Whisky to round of the day.
