I've had many people tour Ireland with me on Innisfree Tours... and The Netherlands on The Turning Point Tours, and several of those people have asked me-- "Where are you/we going next ?!" Well, the answer is SCOTLAND ! I love Scotland and we've put together a fantastic 9 day tour that includes 3 days in one of my favorite European cities- Edinburgh - and 3 days on and around the stunning and majestic Isle of Skye and 3 days up in the Highlands (Inverness area). We'll have a wonderful city guide- Fiona- to start things off in Edinburgh, we'll meet up with another delightful guide- Nory- for days 4 through 9 who will take us into the west and northward-- history and music and culture. I hope you'll consider joining us !
Here is our 2019 itinerary-
For 2021 projected costs are $2500 per person- double occupancy
or $2800 for a single.
The Scottish buses hold 16 passengers,
so we'll have room for 14 guests.
Included in the tour cost are all in-country entertainment, museums, travel, 3 group dinners, lodging, breakfasts, local guides.... Guests are responsible for their own lunches , the balance of dinners, and transportation to and from Edinburgh.
Thanks for your interest in BEYOND THE TARTAN Tours in Scotland. Started in 2016, these tours of 9 days and nights offer a small group experience (just 14 guests) that explores the history and culture of Scotland with experienced and passionate native guides. Leading guests from the rugged beauty of Edinburgh, whose magnificent castle overlooks the city, up north onto the Isle of Skye, then along Loch Ness to Inverness, each trip will offer unique sights and insights into this remarkable and charming country. Each tour is headed by noted American songwriters and musicians, and will therefore seek out a variety of Scottish music during our visit— we might find ourselves at a ceilidh dance, or a ballad session, and certainly there will be a private Concert by our Music host/leader.
Our lodging is a mixture of small hotels, guest houses and b&bs.
The Tour starts and ends in Edinburgh. We recommend guests fly into Edinburgh.
The Edinburgh airport is about 8 miles from our hotel, and we'll do our best to have someone meet you when you arrive.
