DAY I After an early start this morning, relax on the coach as we head north to Preston to our overnight hotel, with stops en route for coffee and lunch.
DAY 2 After breakfast, we head out and continue our journey north into Scotland.We visit Scotland’s most famous horses, the Kelpies, which are the world’s largest equine sculptures, towering I 00 feet over the Forth & Clyde Canal and are an impressive sight to see.We then enjoy a boat trip on the unique Falkirk Wheel, an amazing feat of engineering and the world’s first and only rotating boat lift, which connects the Forth & Clyde canal with the Union Canal. Opened in 2002, it requires only the power of eight domestic kettles to sail boats through the air and transfer them between the two canals.We then continue on to our hotel for the next two nights on the outskirts of Glasgow, with time to settle in before dinner.
DAY 3 After a hearty Scottish breakfast, you have time to explore the spa, golf course or leisure facilities at the hotel, as we have a relaxing morning before the evening Tattoo performance. After a three course lunch at the hotel, we head to Edinburgh where the coach will take you on a short orientation tour of Scotland’s majestic capital.You will then have time to explore this thriving city before your evening performance of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo – a truly remarkable and internationally acclaimed event.This thrilling and moving experience, set against the world famous backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, will incorporate the unforgettable music of the massed pipes and drums, the massed military bands, as well as imaginative graphics, state-of-the-art lighting, singers, dancers and many other performers from around the world.The show is finally brought to an emotional and poignant close each evening as the Lone Piper, high on the castle ramparts, plays a haunting lament.
DAY 4 This morning, we head to York to our overnight hotel in the heart of the city. Here, you can explore this beautiful and ancient city at your leisure. Maybe explore the magnificent Minster, visit the National Railway Museum, take a sightseeing cruise along the river or browse in Shambles Market before heading back to the hotel for dinner.
DAY 5 We head homeward today, with stops on the way for coffee and lunch, arriving back in the early evening.
