“Bonny, Bonny Scotland”
From the grassy hills of the Borders to the desolate Cuillin Ridge of Skye, the landscape of Scotland is breathtaking in its variety. Lonely glens, sparkling lochs and ever changing skies give the land a challenging character which is reflected in the qualities of the Scottish people. Tough and self reliant, they have made some of Britain’s finest soldiers, its boldest explorers and most astute industrialists.
We tour daily to…
• St. Andrews
• Stirling & Loch Lomond
• The Scottish Highlands & Islands
• Isle of Skye
• Loch Ness
• Argyll & Bute
