Discover the beauty and charm of the Scottish Lowlands, including visits to Peebles, Gretna Green and Galashiels. A highlight of the trip is a visit to Scotland’s capital city – Edinburgh – where there is an expert tour guide who will provide an interesting and informative commentary whilst we’re travelling along the cobbled streets in luxurious Club Class coach travel. There is also a visit to the magnificent Thirlestene Castle along with a serene water cruise upon the Forth Belle.



Day 1 – We travel to our hotel with comfort stops along the way and arrive in time for dinner.

Day 2 – We spend some time in Scotland’s capital city of Edinburgh today including a guided tour by a local expert onboard the coach – keep your eyes peeled for many of Edinburgh’s hotspots, including the historic fortress of Edinburgh Castle. After, we head to Firth of Forth for a 90 minute wildlife cruise on the Forth Belle, where you can either sit on the outside deck or in the heated observation lounge and listen to the guided commentary.

Day 3 – This morning we visit the Scottish burgh of Galashiels which is located just across the Scottish border. The town’s history has been closely aligned with the textile industry within the Scottish borders. Later, we travel to Thirlestane Castle or a guided tour around the beautiful 16th century castle which is famous for one of the most extensive family collections of painting and busts in Scotland. We also have time to wander through the well-maintain grounds boasting marvellous plants and shrubbery.

Day 4 – Enjoy a free day today – it’s Market Day in Peebles! A town for all seasons, its setting and character will take your breath away.

Day 5 – We travel home via Gretna Green.
