This tour gives you an insider’s view of the city’s number one attraction, first letting you skip-the-line and then revealing the secrets of this fortress, from one of the world’s few official dog cemeteries to the smallest shrine in the world. Learn about the castle’s wicked and wonderful history from your guide.

We depart Edinburgh and travel over the Queensferry Crossing to the Kingdom of Fife. Travelling north, the scenery changes from the rolling farmland of the lowlands to forested hills and mountains as you approach the highland fault line.
On the banks of the River Tay you find the gorgeous Cathedral town of Dunkeld. We enjoy a stop here, so you have the chance to explore the architecturally fascinating Cathedral and the quaint streets of this picturesque village.
It's a short drive from here to the Hermitage, where you can take a fantastic woodland walk leading up to the Black Linn Falls. Leaving the Hermitage you follow the wide valley of the River Tay towards the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry. We spend around one hour here, so you can visit the many great shops or have some lunch.
After lunch, we enjoy a scenic drive through the mountains of Highland Perthshire and take a short stop at the Queen's View overlooking Loch Tummel. On a clear day the view here is awe inspiring as it looks over to the unmistakable peak of Schiehallion and beyond
to the mountains of Glencoe.
Continuing alongside Loch Tummel, we head over the hills into the ancient lands of Breadalbane or the ‘High Country’ surrounding Loch Tay. Here we make a stop at the waterside village of Kenmore.
We then continue the short distance to the town of Aberfeldy and Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery, where you can discover the secret of how Scotland's national drink is made. After enjoying a Dram of our ‘water of life’, the tour returns you to the lowlands and back to Edinburgh.
Start Time: 09:30am
