Live like a Clan Chief (4star Manor Homes option) - 7 Nights departing from Edinburgh
Edinburgh has an almost fairy-tale setting and every step is a revelation. Its magnificent architecture shifts from the proud tenements of its medieval Old Town, to the grace and geometric precision of the Georgian New Town. Above it all stands Edinburgh Castle perched high on its volcanic rock looking down on a city where medieval lanes and elegant, sweeping terraces hold over ten centuries of history, mystery, and tradition.

Inverness and Aberdeen give access to trekking across the hills of the lowlands or the rocky peaks of the Highlands and islands.
