I’ve been ranting alot recently, and I’m thankful to get it all off my chest, but I thought it appropriate today to get back to some down to earth travel advice. It is afterall (supposed to be) a travel website first and a soapbox second 🙂 I’ve come across several tours in Edinburgh and further afield to suit the culture buff, the historian, the drinkers, the nature enthusiasts as well as the casual sightseer.
VisitScotland organises a range of tours to suit all tastes. All tours include…
The Hogmanay break, taking in Edinburgh’s renowned New Year’s celebrations in the Princes Street Gardens under the shadow of Edinburgh Castle, begins at £105. From £189 you can partake in the world famous Edinburgh Military tattoo, which conincides with the Festival season in August of each year. Get in quick as the Tattoo sells out months in advance every year. Golf is a favourite pastime in Scotland and VisitScotland organises a range of golf tours, including the Open Golf Championship 2007 and a visit to the St Andrew course. For all you Da Vinci code fans, there is even a tour to Rosslyn Chapel, made famous by it’s inclusion in Dan Brown’s Da Vinci code. If you are interested in this tour it’s a good idea to come out of season, as large groups easily crowd the small church.
