Monday 6th: We leave during the morning and travel north over the border to our hotel
Tuesday 7th: Departing our hotel after breakfast to Falkirk where we board the Falkirk Wheel which was opened by the Queen in May 2002. Nothing like it has ever been built before anywhere in the world. You will take a boat from the basin and sail into the bottom gondola of the wheel, which makes a gentle sweep lifting the boat up to join the Union Canal 35m above. We then visit the Kelpies Experience. The Kelpies tower a colossal 30 metres above Scotland’s Forth of Clyde canal and form a dramatic gateway to the canal entrance on the East Coast of Scotland. Visitors can now experience a tour inside The Kelpies and hear all about their origin, inspiration and the engineering work involved in their creation. A 45 minute guided walking tour of the Kelpies is included
Wednesday 8th: Today we visit one of the most iconic cities in the world, Edinburgh. The inspiring capital of Scotland where centuries of history meet a vibrant, cosmopolitan city in an unforgettable setting. The city centre offers residents an exciting fusion of shopping, dining and architectural splendour.
Thursday 9th: Stirling is our destination today. Scotland’s heritage capital, with a setting of mountains, rock crags and the winding river Forth, Stirling is ‘the brooch which clasps together the Highlands and the Lowlands’. Included today is a free flow visit to Stirling Castle, one of the largest and most important castles, both historically and architecturally in Scotland.
Friday 10th: We enjoy our final Scottish breakfast before we start our journey home.
