SCOTLAND

A land of legend and heroes, delve into Scotland’s bloody but fascinating history as you make your way through its lush green landscapes and spectacular mountain scenery. Walk in the steps of protagonists such as William Wallace and Rob Roy MacGregor and marvel at its mysterious lochs and colorful festivals.

See iconic Edinburgh Castle and walk within its walls to view the Scottish Crown Jewels, Stone of Destiny and Mons Meg. Visit the home of golf, St. Andrews, and see where the famous beach scene in “Chariots of Fire” was filmed. And of course, no trip to Scotland would be complete without going search of the legendary Loch Ness Monster.
