We take you round the City of Edinburgh “off the beaten path” with a drive up Arthur’s seat. 823ft of volcano in the heart of Edinburgh, enjoy panoramic views of the city.
We then head to the Forth road and rail bridges. The rail bridge (The Forth Bridge), built in 1881, was considered at the time, the greatest feat of engineering in the industrial world.
Overlooking these landmarks are some of Scotland’s finest stately homes and castles. First we visit Hopetoun House. Arguably the finest stately home in Scotland.
Blackness Castle is our next stop. This seaside fortress is a textbook example of a Scottish castle. Onto House of the Binns, with its striking hilltop tower, is just a few miles away.
Next its on to the Palace of Linlithgow. A ghostly looking shell of its former grand royal days.
Finally we visit Rosslyn Chapel. Recently featured in Hollywood blockbuster The Da Vinci Code. With links to the knight’s templar and Built in 1446, this is believed to be the hiding place of the Holy Grail.
