Castles & Lochs of the Western Highlands
Spend the day discovering the Highlands' highlight castles, lochs, and other scenic tracts on this hassle-free tour from Edinburgh.
Brodie Castle Tour
Explore the ancestral home of Scotland's Clan Brodie with admission to Brodie Castle in Moray. Set in parkland, this treasure-filled baronial-style mansion was originally the clan's 16th-century tower house.
Robert Burns Museum Tour
More than just the birthplace of Scotland's national poet Robert Burns, the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum is an entryway to the village of Alloway and offers a peek back in time to Scottish village life in the 18th century. Explore the museum on your own time when you book your entrance ticket in advance, which can be redeemed anytime during the museum's regular operating hours.
Dating from the 16th century, Brodie Castle, set in Morayshire parkland near Forres, has unusual plaster ceilings, a major art collection and tells the fascinating story of the Brodie family.
Many of Scotland's castles impress because of their gloomy grandeur and violent history, but the charming and romantic 12th century Dirleton Castle, which is set on a natural rocky outcrop near North Berwick in East Lothian, is best known for its splendid gardens which include a Victorian garden and the Arts and Crafts herbaceous border.
Comparing to shield volcanoes, dome volcanoes have much steeper sides. The reason for this lays in lava being comparatively sticky and thick, impeding it from flowing far before it cools and hardens.
A gift from Mother Nature, Fingal’s Cave is a place of unrivalled proportions. Hexagonally-jointed symmetrical basalt columns form the structure while the unworldly acoustics heighten the taunting ebb and flow of the rambunctious swell.
Scotland’s castles are constant reminders of the country’s colourful history. Although the famous picks like Edinburgh Castle and Eilean Donan are something straight out of a fairytale.
Some arty, others ambiguous, Scotland is synonymous with evocative gardens. Between the fractals and mathematical equations embedded in the Garden of Cosmic Speculation and the philosophical garden poetry within Little Sparta, to Jupiter Artland and Dunbar’s Close hidden in Edinburgh’s Old Town, the flower power is verging on too much!
