Enjoy the moors even more by visiting during the off season, with fewer crowds and lower prices. Begin in Edinburgh to visit the Castle and admire Scotland’s Crown Jewels. Visit the home of golf at St. Andrews. Stop in the Victorian mountain resort of Pitlochry and admire its Scottish Baronial architecture, then cross the battleground at Culloden Moor. Spend the night in the Highland capital of Inverness, and prepare for a day of glorious Scottish scenery on your drive along the shores of Loch Ness. Keep an eye out for the elusive Nessie! Take a spirited tour of Ben Nevis whisky distillery, and admire even more beautifully rugged landscapes from Glen Coe to Oban on the western coast of Scotland.
Travel through the serene glens, lush forests, and rushing rivers of The Trossachs—Scotland’s first national park. Relish in the lovely views of Loch Lomond. Take a drive through Glasgow to see its 12th-century cathedral, stately university buildings, and elegant Georgian squares built in the heyday of the tobacco barons.
