Scotland's spectacular heritage
Join us to experience the world-famous Royal Military Tattoo, held on the Esplanade of majestic Edinburgh Castle. You'll also enjoy a day trip to the Isle of Arran, visit historic Brodick Castle and its beautiful landscaped gardens, and explore elegant Edinburgh and cosmopolitan Glasgow, on this enjoyable four-day break.
Single rooms are available for a supplement
Fly to Glasgow, meet your Tour Manager and head to the remarkable World Heritage Site of New Lanark, where the Visitor Centre (entry payable locally) tells the extraordinary story of this historic cotton mill village. We'll then continue to your hotel.
Today we'll head to Edinburgh. After a short, guided orientation tour that takes in some of the city's most famous sights, the rest of the day is left free for you to enjoy at leisure.
This evening, make your way to Edinburgh Castle's esplanade for the Military Tattoo performance - a not-to-be-missed blend of music, colour, dance and military pageantry. See massed pipes and drums, dancers and display teams from around the world in a dazzling spectacle, ending with a lone piper on the battlements, silhouetted against the night sky.
Today we'll board the ferry to Arran, one of Scotland's loveliest islands. Here, we'll visit Brodick Castle - once the ancient seat of the Dukes of Hamilton and boasting stunning views over Brodick Bay to the Ayrshire coast. There are guides in each room who will be happy to tell you all you want to know. The landscaped gardens are also well worth exploring.
This morning we'll head to Glasgow city-centre, where there will be time to explore, shop and sightsee before returning to the airport to board your flight home.

You may like to upgrade your seat for the Tattoo. The seats are located in stands in a U shape around the castle esplanade. The more expensive the seats the further away they are from the open part of the U, which is where the acts emerge onto the esplanade.
Please note: except for holidays departing on Fridays, we reserve the right to swap days two and three around.

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel.

Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
