Day One

Leaving the local area this morning we'll head to Edinburgh, arriving in the early to mid afternoon. Delve into the city's fascinating history in the Castle, Holyrood Palace and the Royal Mile's Lanes and wynds, or head for the superb shops along famous Princes Street for some festive shopping.

In the late afternoon, re-join the coach for a short, guided panoramic sightseeing tour of the city to admire the floodlit landmarks and enjoy the city's Christmas lights. Then, after the chance to have an early evening meal, we'll leave the city and head to our overnight hotel.

Day Two

After breakfast, we'll return to Edinburgh for the chance to enjoy more shopping and sightseeing. Soak up some culture in the city's museums, or browse the colourful Christmas Markets. You'll find Scottish handicrafts and foodstuffs at the Traditional Highland Village in Princes Street Gardens, as well as continental temptations at the city's German Christmas Market.

Alternatively, take advantage of the free transfer to Ocean Terminal - a stunning dockside shopping and leisure centre in nearby Leith.

Day Three

We'll begin our journey home after breakfast, stopping en route in a place of interest for lunch. We should be back in your local area by early to mid evening.
