DELUXE | PRIVATE-GUIDED: Gambol through Edinburgh in style on this five-day getaway. After settling into deluxe hotel accommodations, experience the capital’s highlights with the help of a local expert, explore its castles and palaces at your own pace and later venture out to explore the Scottish Highlands alongside a private guide.


Roam Scotland’s charismatic capital city on this 5-day city break, including royal sights, private touring, deluxe accommodation, and a journey into the Highlands.

 Check into your hotel and take your first night to relax and explore Edinburgh on your own, before a half day Mini Cooper tour acquaints you with the key historic sights and puts things into context. It’s designed to pack in the top sights in limited time, giving you the opportunity to go back and see what interests you in detail. Most visitors want to see Edinburgh Castle, and perhaps Holyrood House, the Queen’s official Edinburgh residence, and the Royal Yacht Britannia. Your Royal Edinburgh ticket, taking in all these sights, is good for 48 hours, and includes a one-hour, hop-on, hop-off bus tour. A full day at leisure means you don’t have to rush.

 Then it’s time for a full day’s private tour of the Highlands, visiting the town of Callendar, Deanston Distillery, and Balquidder, final resting place of Rob Ray. Visit Glencoe and the 3 Sisters mountain range before you return to Edinburgh, rich with memories of this incredible landscape and its history.

Day 1

Edinburgh Airport to Hotel

Duration1 Hour

InterContinental Edinburgh George St.

The Principal Edinburgh on George Street has been welcoming hotel guests since 1881. At its heart are five listed Georgian townhouses, built in 1775 as homes for Edinburgh's most prosperous citizens. Winner of Scottish Hotel of the Year at the 2017 Scottish Hotel Awards, The Principal Edinburgh George St is an ideal base from which to explore the city or conduct business. The sensitive, multi-million-pound restoration and refurbishment combines luxurious natural materials such as oak, marble and leather with a palette of colors inspired by the great 19th-century Scottish landscape painters. A nod to Edinburgh's rich literary heritage, The Printing Press Bar & Kitchen was once home to acclaimed novelist Susan Ferrier (an equal of Jane Austen, according to Sir Walter Scott), whilst Burr and Co. is a lovely coffee shop with a devoted local following. The hotel also boasts the magnificent King's Hall - a firm favorite for weddings and celebration - as well as seven additional meeting and event rooms and a newly equipped gym.

Day 2

Half-Day Edinburgh Tour with Lunch

Edinburgh is an incredibly historic city, and you will have an exciting and unique experience while in town. Appreciating that you may be short on time to see and do everything Edinburgh has to offer, this Mini Mack adventure visits a host of notable UNESCO sites and hidden gems while you snap away on your cameras and phones. Led by one of two local brothers, Rowan and Andy Mackie, you will have the opportunity to see and do more than what is listed in guide books. While Rowan and Andy may not be licensed historians, their local knowledge of Edinburgh and inside scoops on what's fun and interesting to do in the city is second-to-none, making for the perfect day out. After discovering a range of Edinburgh's top highlights including Calton Hill and Arthurs Seat - among many others - you will then settle in for a tasty meal in a charming local pub that features fresh, locally-sourced cuisine before being returned to your hotel. The perfect half-day sightseeing experience in Edinburgh, an additional treat is that your transportation between sites is in a well-maintained and comfortable Mini Cooper.

Duration4 Hours

Day 4

Private Full Day Highlands Tour

Setting out in the morning with an experienced local guide, you'll head northbound from Edinburgh on a drive that will whisk you past The Kelpies, towering horse-head figures that routinely draw nearly one million visitors annually. Carrying on, you'll pass through the idyllic town of Callendar en route to the foothills of the Highlands where you'll break to tour Deanston Distillery, an outfit specializing in single malt whisky. After meeting the team and touring the facilities, you'll next head out to become acquainted with another set of locals, the Highland Coo's (cows). Get up close with these gentle giants, feeding a few before driving to Balquidder, the resting place for renowned (or infamous, pending on who you speak to) local Rob Ray.

After a break for lunch (not included), drive through the magnificent West Highland Way, visiting Glencoe and the 3 Sisters mountain range before beginning the return trip back to Edinburgh. An incredible day of Highlands's discovery, this tour lasts approximately 10 hours.
