As we travel along the western coastline, today we will visit Culzean Country Park, a glorious 260-hectare estate perched on the Ayreshire cliffside. The grounds cover the Castle, the gardens, the beach coves and woodlands and country park. In the afternoon we will be taking a tour at the Robert Burns Museum, the humble cottage where Scottish poet Robert Burns was born and spent the first years of his life.
We venture north into the heart of the highlands, with a drive through Scotland’s most beautiful glens and a visit to the town of Fort William, located at the foothills of Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest mountain. Later we travel further into the highlands to the town of Fort Augustus and take a cruise on Loch Ness – keep an eye out for Nessie the monster!
Today we travel to Inveraray Castle, a country home in western Scotland on the shores of Loch Fyne. Seat of the Duke of Argyll, it featured on the TV series Downton Abbey. In the afternoon we will take a tour of the Auchentoshen Distillery, which produces one of Scotland’s finest single malt whiskeys.
This morning, enjoy some free time in Glasgow before we depart Scotland to catch our return ferry to Belfast.
