At a Glance

Share the traditions and legends of Scotland with your family as you explore medieval castles, dance to the sound of bagpipes and search for the Loch Ness Monster! Beginning in the capital city of Edinburgh, walk along the cobbled streets of the medieval Old Town to trace Scotland’s culture from pre-history to present day. Spend a day at the Edinburgh Zoo, admire the view of the city from Edinburgh Castle and go “underground” as you explore Mary King’s Close. Journey to the Highlands to spend a night in a haunted castle, and take a boat ride along Loch Ness to search for the elusive “Nessie.” Along the way, encounter highland sheepdogs, dance to traditional bagpipe music and much more!
