St Andrews, famous as Scotland’s oldest university town. The town caters for everyone, with many attractions within walking distance of each other. Maybe learn about its history and explore St Andrews Cathedral or its castle, or enjoy its medieval buildings and its multitude of independent and high street names.
Full day tour taking in Stonehaven, a busy harbour town that sits in a sheltered spot on Stonehaven Bay. This coastal gem is bustling with sailing yachts in the harbour and is home to the ruined fortress of Dunnottar Castle.
Ballater, the nearest town to Balmoral Castle and considered one of the most beautiful in the Highlands. Whilst world-famous for its royal connections, this Victorian town also has a great selection of speciality shops.
Braemar, a timeless Scottish village. It attracts visitors for its peaceful mountain and woodland scenery, stunning glens and ancient pine forests which caters for a great range of wildlife.
Blairgowrie, one of the largest towns in Perthshire and tucked away on the banks of the River Ericht. The town has a vibrant character and is well served with a host of quality independent shops and cafés.
Glenshee, an impressive ski area with breath-taking views across the Cairngorms National Park.
Dunkeld, an unspoilt village where Dunkeld Cathedral and the landscape surrounding Dunkeld House are reminders of its well-preserved history. Browse its shops or take a relaxing walk around its largely untouched surroundings – one of Scotland’s gems.
Glamis Castle, the childhood home of Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother, where a thousand years of history is waiting to be discovered.
