ARRIVE EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND
Arrive in Edinburgh, capital of Scotland, where you are met by your Guardian Angel, privately transferred to your hotel and assisted with check-in.
EDINBURGH | THE HONOURS OF SCOTLAND
Begin a guided tour of the city at Edinburgh Castle, a royal fortress that is home to the Honours of Scotland, the oldest set of Crown Jewels in the British Isles. Take in stunning views of the city from the castle’s impressive military installations. Next, travel the Royal Mile, down from the castle through the Old Town of Edinburgh, to St. Giles Cathedral — a fascinating Gothic church. Also view Holyrood Palace, the Queen's Official Residence in Scotland, and the more contemporary Scottish Parliament Building.
EDINBURGH | THE SCOTTISH BORDERS
Today, head south to explore the rolling hills, winding rivers and idyllic farmland that lie between Edinburgh and the boundary between Scotland and England, an area known as the Scottish Borders. Take in the ruins of medieval monasteries in Melrose, Scotland’s oldest inhabited residence in Peebles and the hauntingly beautiful peaks of the Pentland Hills.
This morning, privately transfer to the airport and board your homebound flight.
