Edinburgh is the royal and ancient capital of Scotland and one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, draped across a series of rocky hills overlooking the sea. On a sightseeing tour you can see the ancient Royal Mile with its cobbled streets forms the backbone of the medieval Old Town which leads from the Palace of Holyroodhouse (HM The Queen’s official residence in Scotland) all the way to Edinburgh Castle. Enjoy a guided tour of the castle, home to the Scottish Crown Jewels and the historic Stone of Destiny. The view from the castle is simply stunning. You may also choose to take a tour to the Scottish Highlands on the way to Loch Ness. See wooded lochs and tucked-away villages as you journey through spectacular scenery en route to Glencoe, Cairngorms National Park and Fort Augustus. Enjoy an optional boat tour in search of the Loch Ness Monster, marvel at the mountain peaks of Craig Meagaidh and traverse Drummochter Summit to Pitlochry.
From Belfast the capital of Northern Ireland, drive along the Causeway Coastal Route to take in the stunning views on the way to the Giant’s Causeway to see remarkable rock formations. The lunar landscape of the Giant’s Causeway is a World Heritage site where the basalt columns packed tightly together have made the Giant’s Causeway the subject of numerous legends. Stand on the hills that gently arc this precious place and you’ll look down on thousands of basalt columns tumbling down into the Atlantic Ocean. It’s an epic sight, with 40,000 or so of these hexagonal-shaped pillars, which dates back to a volcanic age almost 60 million years ago.
England is a place where the past is a constant presence, a story that stretches back more than 5000 years. Ruined castles perch on lonely hilltops. Mysterious standing stones, barrow tombs and stone circles sit in the corner of forgotten fields. Medieval cathedrals, regal palaces and stately homes dot the landscape where every English city, town and village has its own individual tale to tell.
