TOUR ITINERARY
 
 
Scotland, England
 
 
Gretna Green, Glasgow, Loch Lomond, Nevis Range, Edinburgh, Lake District
 
 
London - Glasgow - Glasgow area
   
This morning, at the check-in point, you will meet your Tour Manager and join the coach for a leisurely drive from London to Glasgow. En-route we visit Gretna Green, a village in the south of Scotland where the blacksmith used to wed runaway couples. The Old Blacksmith's Shop and Gretna Hall Blacksmith's Shop are in popular folklore, the focal tourist points for the marriage trade. After a brief stop we continue to Scotland's largest city and a national cultural hub, Glasgow. On arrival enjoy a view of Glasgow Cathedral and the University of Glasgow. Later you have some free time at Georges Square for photos of the ornate Glasgow City Chambers and several monuments and statues. Continuing our drive, we reach our hotel and check-in for a three-night stay.

(Dinner)
 
 
 
 
Glasgow area - Loch Lomond - Fort William - Glasgow area
   
This morning we drive to Loch Lomond, a freshwater lake lying on the Highland Boundary Fault, and the largest inland stretch of water in Great Britain by surface area, for a photo-stop at the lake-side. Continue the scenic drive to Fort William, at the foot of the mighty Ben Nevis, to visit the Nevis Range. Enjoy the ascent to up to 2150 ft. on the north face of Aonach Mor by mountain gondolas (visit to the Nevis Range is weather permitting). The journey allows breathtaking views of the Scottish Highlands, including the Great Glen, Ben Nevis, and surrounding areas. Our next photo-stop is at the Commando Memorial, dedicated to the men of the original British Commando Forces raised during World War II. Later we also stop for photos at Neptune's Staircase, the longest staircase lock in Britain, for lifting boats on the Caledonian Canal. Late evening, we return to our hotel.

 (Breakfast, Dinner)
 
 
 
 
Glasgow area - Edinburgh - Glasgow area
   
Today we drive to Edinburgh. En-route we visit a local whisky distillery (*) for a short tour. On arrival in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, we visit the famous Edinburgh Castle, a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of the city. The Castle is home to the Crown Jewels known as The Honours of Scotland and the Stone of Destiny, a powerful and ancient symbol of Scottish monarchy. Later you descend the hill and cross the stately Royal Mile to see St. Giles' Cathedral, the Scottish Parliament, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, once home of Mary Queen of Scots and the Sir Walter Scott Monument on Princes Street. Leaving Edinburgh, we stop at Falkirk Wheel, a rotating boat lift connecting the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal, for a photo-stop. The boat lift  reconnects the two canals for the first time since the 1930s as part of the Millennium Link  project to regenerate central Scotland's canals, and reconnect Glasgow with Edinburgh. Late evening, we return to our hotel.  

(Breakfast, Dinner)

This morning we return to England and drive south to the shores of Lake Windermere, the site of England’s largest lake, where you can admire the natural scenery and breathtaking views. On arrival enjoy a scenic cruise on Lake Windermere and a Heritage Steam Train ride from Lakeside to Haverthwaite. We then continue our journey to London, where the tour ends and it is time to say farewell to all the friends you have made on tour.
