Discover the magical scenery of Scotland
The wild and remote landscapes of Scotland have been inspiring
travellers for centuries and its panoramic views are almost as
legendary as the country's famous single malts.
On this exclusive four-day break, readers will fly to Edinburgh and enjoy a guided tour of Scotland's elegant capital including its iconic castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, once frequented by Mary, Queen of Scots and now Her Majesty The Queen's official residence in Scotland.
You'll be based in The Trossachs, Rob Roy MacGregor's stomping ground near Loch Lomond, for three nights on a half-board basis, with time to explore the largest freshwater lake in Britain. Your trip also includes a chance to admire Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, cross the barren expanse of Rannoch Moor and drive through Glencoe, a hauntingly beautiful valley sculpted by the last ice age.
You'll see the scenic West Highland coastline on a spectacular drive from Fort William to Oban, and stop in the pretty village of Inveraray on the shores of Loch Fyne, the ancestral seat of the Dukes of Argyll. Visits to historic Stirling Castle and Scone Palace are also included in the trip, as is the opportunity to meet some fabulous Highland cows during a trip to the Trossachs Woollen Mill.
