Day 1

We travel north from London by comfortable train with reserved seating. A journey of just over five hours means you can have breakfast in England and lunch in Scotland. 

Once we have left the train our guide will transfer us to the coach for an eye opening informative tour of Scotland's capital city.

We will head to the Royal Mile that links the Palace of Holyrood House with the ancient castle on top of an extinct volcano. We will see the High Kirk of St Giles (the cathedral), the old Parliament Square and the Castle Esplanade. At the foot of this famous street we will stand outside Holyrood House and learn of Scottish Royalty, of King David, Robert the Bruce and Mary Queen of Scots.

We journey from the Old Town towards the New Town and climb Calton Hill to see the National Monument and admire the view towards Arthur's Seat, a 250m high rocky crag that lies within the whole city. We will learn of Scotland's writers, Robbie Burns, Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson, view their memorials and see where they lived.

Afterwards we drive through the elegant squares and terraces of the New Town we transfer you to your nearby accommodation and a chance to have a late lunch and explore some of the excellent free museums your guide will have talked about on the tour.
