Step back in time as you follow in the footsteps of the most iconic heroes of Scotland’s past, William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. On this tour, you’ll learn about the famous battles and sacrifices that were made to shape the future of Scotland all while exploring the historic heartlands. Highlights of this trip include the option to venture into Stirling Castle, treading on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond and enjoying a dram of whisky at one of the famous local distilleries.
You’ll visit castles over 500 years old, where you’ll get to experience how life changed over the centuries. Some of the locations on tour brag the passing through of both British and Hollywood royalty alike, with many of them being the backdrop to some of your favourite TV shows and movies.
This is definitely the tour for those who want a glimpse of what Scotland was in times before, along with and understanding of how wonderfully brilliant it is now.
