Highlands and Edinburgh (Week Two) 

As a result of the unprecedented demand for Scottish holidays following the global pandemic and a significant increase in travel and accommodation costs, we regret that this tour cannot take place as planned.

As an alternative, for those who wish to extend their time in Scotland, we recommend the following through Trafalgar – Best of Scotland Tour 2023 | Flexible Bookings | Trafalgar
