My heart’s in the Highlands,” said Robert Burns – as will you, while traveling from city to country, mainland to island, on this sweet 12-day journey.  From loch to glen, encounter stunning natural beauty and welcoming clans in a small group limited to 24 travelers.  Discover vibrant Glasgow during a two-night stay, taking a tour highlighting the city’s distinct architecture.  A guided tour to the Burrell Collection, a museum dedicated to the art collection of Sir William Burrell and Lady Constance Burrell.  Setting out for Fort William in the scenic Highlands, stop by storied Loch Lomond’s bonnie banks.  Next is dramatic Glencoe, one of Scotland’s most beautiful spots, followed by a full-day excursion to the stunning Isle of Skye.  Reaching fabled Loch Ness, best known for its rumored inhabitant, take a boat ride, then see Urquhart Castle’s evocative ruins.  Continue to Culloden Moor’s hallowed ground, site of the last battle of the Jacobite Rising.  Exploration of the Highlands continues from historic Inverness with an excursion along the ancient Pictish Trail and a falconry demonstration at striking Dunrobin Castle.  At a small local distillery, sample handcrafted single malt whisky.  Watch a sheepdog demonstration en route to legendary Saint Andrews, renowned as golf’s birthplace, for an overnight stay and touring.  Reaching stately Edinburgh for a three-night stay, tour its “New Town” and soak in the atmosphere of medieval “Old Town,” visiting Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood on the renowned Royal Mile.  Enjoy independent exploration here before the journey’s end.  As a special treat, attend a performance of the famed Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
