Know More about this tour

This is a tour for those want to enjoy Scottish history and culture by visiting some of our most impressive and mysterious sites. We leave from Edinburgh’s most famous street, the Royal Mile, and head towards Dunfermline. You’ll get a chance to photograph and travel over the Forth Road Bridge—a Scottish icon and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Our stop in Dunfermline gives you ample time to explore the Abbey Kirk here. It’s a lovely church and is the burial place of Robert the Bruce; you can view his tomb here during the summer season. We’ll also make a quick stop at the sight of the Battle of Bannockburn- the sight of Robert the Bruce and Scotland’s biggest victory—you’ll have the chance to photograph Bruce’s magnificent statue here.

Next we’ll head to Stirling Castle—the reconstructions of James IV’s hall and James V’s palace here have raised the bar for heritage practice worldwide. You’ll have over two hours here to explore the castle (own expense), see its grand rooms and learn about how life here once was. There are fantastic views from the battlements of the Wallace Monument and over the southern Highlands and the Ochil Hills. You’ll learn the true tale of Braveheart from your guide!

Our final stop of the day is at Rosslyn Chapel (own expense). Dan Brown set the climatic scenes of his novel The Da Vinci Code here you may recognise it from the film of the same name. You could spend hours mesmerised by the intricate carvings here. It is full of mystery and intrigue, and you’ll learn the stories behind individual carvings. You can also take a short walk over a bridge across a stunning steeply-sided valley and stream to the nearby Rosslyn Castle.

  • This was a great trip. The tour guide was knowledgeable

  • All three sites were interesting and beautiful. While we had been to a number of castles on our trip, it was still fun wondering around the rooms of Stirling Castle.

  • Excellent day. Guide was friendly and informative. He included some extra stops for photos and to take in some historical aspects that were not covered in published itinerary. Our reason for choosing this tour was for the history surrounding Stirling Castle and hoping to touch on Robert the Bruce and William Wallace. Our guide and tour covered these really well, with Roslyn Abbey being an excellent visit also.

  • If we had not first taken the tour to Alnwick we may have thought this tour was better. Everything was just ok.

  • What a fantastic day, a few extra stops with more history to learn and photo opportunities. We had Robert as a driver and guide for the day - Robert was totally awesome. Its great when a person enjoys their job !
    I had a great day Robert - thank you

  • Very professional operation. Excellent tour and Paul was a fantastic driver / guide! Best ever!

  • Great trip, well paced and balanced between historical information and free time at each site. We had a fairly clear day but an umbrella is a must for doing anything in Scotland, no matter what the weather report is.
