5 Day Itinerary

  • Day 1:

    Local departure by coach or Home Connect service, then to the Tinto Hotel in the Scottish Borders for four nights.

    Included meals: Dinner

  • Day 2: Edinburgh and Rosslyn Chapel

    Our included excursion takes us to the 15th century Rosslyn Chapel, which survived the turbulent times of the Reformation, and is immortalised in Dan Brown’s film 'The Da Vinci Code' starring Tom Hanks. It lays claim to being one of the most famous chapel’s in the world surrounded by myths and legends of the 'Holy Grail'.

    We continue to Edinburgh for free time. Overlooking the Old Town is the massive castle, with its commanding view of the city and surrounding countryside, including the Firth of Forth. On the highest point of the rock stands St. Margaret’s Chapel, built in the early 12th century by King David I, the youngest son of St. Margaret. The almost chaotic layout of the Old Town is in complete contrast to the northern part of the city built in Georgian times and reflecting the great architectural characteristics of that period. Laid out to a grand design, the New Town has wide streets and elegant squares and is bordered to the south by Princes Street Gardens and to the north by Queen Street Gardens.

    Explore Edinburgh’s famous landmarks, including the Royal Mile, the Palace of Holyrood, Calton Hill and the Sir Walter Scott Monument.
