Scotland Take a journey into the fabled land of adventure on this affordable vacation in Scotland. From the elegant Georgian squares and 12th-century cathedral in Glasgow, you'll travel to legendary Edinburgh, stop in Stirling to admire the prized castle of Scottish kings and symbol of the country's independence. Enjoy a full day of guided sightseeing in Edinburgh, including 200-year-old New Town-home to famous scientists, inventors, and novelists. Visit Edinburgh Castle to see the Crown Jewels and, for specific departures, be thrilled by the Royal Military Tattoo presented on the castle's esplanade in a mass spectacle of Scottish pipe bands, music, dance, and pageantry by performers from around the world.

Next, you'll take the elegant Forth Road Bridge to St. Andrews-the home of golf, the cross Firth of Tay, and head into the Highlands. You'll stop on the way in the Victorian mountain resort of Pitlochry before crossing haunting Culloden Moor, where the Jacobites made their final stand in 1746. Continue into the Highlands for an overnight stay in Strathpeffer and a west coast excursion through spectacular Scottish landscapes and vistas. Your Scottish adventure leads you through the heather-clad moors of the western Highlands to Lochalsh and the Isle of Skye. Then, via ferry across the Sound of Sleat, it's back to the mainland. Take in the scenic highlights on your way back to Glasgow, including Glenfinnan and the monument to fallen clansmen, the viaduct that is recognizable to Harry Potter fans, and many other historic spots.
