Scotland is such a beautiful country full of interesting tales and rugged landscapes, and we feel that it’s well worth extending an Edinburgh city package and adding a few nights to marvel at the natural beauty of this spectacular country.
The major cities are wonderful and full of history, but to get a proper feel of Scotland you need to get on a tour and see the beautiful and rugged scenery as well as try a dram or two with the locals! We offer a wide variety of tours and will tailor this to your requirements.

We enjoyed both the tattoo and the apartment in Edinburgh thank you very much. The seats were excellent and the apartment was superb, the weather was great also, it came up windy but the rain stayed off. We saw a lot of Scotland thank you for your itinerary suggestions as we did over 4000 miles and it was very enjoyable! Thank you for your great work.
I just wanted to thank you and the team in Edinburgh for a great weekend for the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. The apartment was great and the seats were in a terrific position. Please thank the Edinburgh staff for me.
We had a fabulous time on our Islay Tour, we loved Bowmore and the cottages. The visit to the distilleries were great and we were hugely impressed with their set up. We feel far better educated and got a better sense of the different Whiskies. We loved Scotland and the weather was superb.
Thanks again Felicity for all your help. We are happily recommending you to our friends who travel.
We will always fondly remember our 3 days in Edinburgh and without doubt the highlight of the whole trip was our night at the Tattoo. Gillian, we can’t thank you enough for the excellent seats we had at the Tattoo, looking straight down the parade ground, half way up the stand – couldn’t have been better. Many, many thanks!
Thank you so much to Felicity for organising our holiday to Scotland recently. We had a fantastic time and were able to visit all the iconic Scottish sites that we wanted. We saw and did much more than we expected by following your Itinerary and suggestions and we really appreciate what you arranged for us! It was great to meet the Edinburgh staff and we especially enjoyed tracing our ancestry.
Our trip to Edinburgh was wonderful. I meet up with Gillian in the Hotel and we had a wonderful time. Really enjoyed our day trip to Stirling Castle. The Saturday was exceptional, we had a lovely dinner at the Dome in the Grill Room as suggested by Felicity and then we headed to the Tattoo. We were included in the MC’s announcements which was a nice touch and we had fantastic tickets for the Tattoo, it was an amazing performance. Thank you so much Felicity for your help in organising this trip, everything went to plan. The Hotel was in a great location for us and it was a wonderful start to our holiday.
