Tour Highlights:

Scotland Tours - Edinburgh Tour

ROSSLYN CHAPEL

Explore the enigmatic Rosslyn Chapel which has connections to the Knights Templar, the Holy Grail and the Da Vinci Code. Intricately carved stone-work is laced with strange symbolism, ancient cults appear behind every story, and alien activity frequently gets reported by UFO hunters.

Glenkinchie Distillery

The home of ‘The Edinburgh Malt’ is located in the rolling farmland of East Lothian and houses an excellent exhibition in the listed red brick buildings. In 1825, farmers John and George Rate built and operated the distillery under the name Milton Distillery until it was licenced and renamed in 1837.

Yester Castle

Once a major fortification that dominated East Lothian, Yester Castle (along with its subterranean cavern known as the Goblin Ha’) is now a rarely visited ruin buried deep within woodland. This important border fortress saw action during the Wars of Independence and the Rough Wooing.

Melrose Abbey

Probably the most famous ruin in Scotland, the abbey was founded by David I in 1136 for the Cistercian Order, and it was largely destroyed by Richard II’s English army in 1385. The exterior of this magnificent ruin is decorated by unusual sculptures, including hobgoblins, cooks with ladles and a bagpipe playing pig.

Jedburgh Abbey

Explore the fascinating Jedburgh Abbey along with its visitor centre and surrounding herb garden with aromatic plants and a stone display at the west end. The church was built in the Romanesque and early Gothic styles and is remarkably complete.

Neidpath Castle

Neidpath Castle sits in a commanding position above the River Tweed. It is an unspoilt 14th century Keep, last modernised in the 1600s. Equipped with a dungeon, well, long-drops and fireplaces large enough to roast an ox, there are also a set of exquisite 20th century batiks, telling the story of Mary Queen of Scots, who stayed at the castle.

Fatlips Castle

Fatlips Castle is a pele tower in Roxburghshire, in the Scottish Borders. Situated at the top of Minto Crags, above the River Teviot, it was built in the 16th century by the Turnbulls of Barnhills, notorious Border reivers, and owners of nearby Barnhills Tower and farm.

Scott’s View
