Excursion Highlights

Edinburgh Tattoo

Royal Yacht Britannia

Serving the Royal Family for over 44 years and travelling more than a million nautical miles, this vessel provided the perfect setting for glittering state receptions, Royal honeymoons and relaxing family holidays.

Rosslyn Chapel

Founded in 1446 Rosslyn Chapel is set in the rural Midlothian countryside. Known for ornate stonework, almost every surface is covered with intricate carvings that have inspired and intrigued visitors ever since. 

Alnwick Castle

Cross the border into North East England to charming Alnwick. One of Northumberland’s most historic towns, the spectacular Alnwick Castle, dubbed ‘Windsor of the North’, is the second largest inhabited castle in the country and has been home to the Percy family for over 700 years.

Kelso & Jedburgh

Venture into bonny Border Country with visits to the welcoming market town of Kelso on the confluence of the Rivers Tweed and Teviot and to the ancient and Royal Burgh of Jedburgh, known for its associations with Mary Queen of Scot and castle jail renowned for its ghostly goings on.

Edinburgh Guided Tour

Explore Scotland’s majestic capital city, Edinburgh joined by a knowledgeable guide. Take in the sights before having free time to explore at leisure. Stroll along the Royal Mile, hit the shops on Princes Street or perhaps visit Edinburgh Castle which proudly towers over the whole city.

Holy Island

Cross the border into North Eastern England to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Only accessible when the tides are low, the island is home to charming cafes, an ancient priory and castle perched on the coastline. An important centre of Celtic Christianity, Saint Aiden came from the tiny island of Iona to found his monastery on the island of Lindisfarne.


Nestled amongst the rolling Border hills in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the gorgeous town of Peebles straddles the River Tweed – world renowned for its picturesque and unspoilt character.  Take some time to meander in and about the alleyways and medieval closes which have barely changed over the passing centuries or discover the fine shops and cafes on the main high street.
