Day by Day Itinerary:
Day 1: Christmas Eve
We leave Scotland's capital and head past the capital of Stirling, home to legends such as William Wallace and Robert the Bruce and scene of many of Scotland’s most famous and bloody battles in the Wars of Independence. Our route north takes us through dramatic Glencoe, the ‘Weeping Glen’ and site of the massacre of 1692. From here, we follow Loch Ness and hunt for the monster, then further north to our magnificent accommodation in a plush Highland Hotel in Inverness, Capital of the Highlands. Once frequented by Royalty, the hotel can boast Queen Victoria as a past guest. Tonight it’s the HAGGiS welcome party!
Day 2: Xmas Day
Christmas Day will never be the same again. Depending on the unpredictable Highland winter weather we may head to a wee town on the coast called Dornoch and take in the fresh sea air to fight off any remaining hangovers or head inland in search of a site for a battle of our very own….with snowballs! A few snow-angel and snowman building attempts will set us up for the slap-up Christmas feast awaiting our return to the hotel. After loads of grub and wine you can grab a partner and work off some of your Christmas indulgencies with traditional Scottish Ceilidh dancing in ‘The Wallace Ballroom’ with its classic furnishings, antique portraits, works of art and glorious crystal chandeliers.
Day 3: Boxing Day
We leave Inverness and head to sweeping and eerie Culloden, sight of the defeat of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s Jacobite uprising. Heading south we make our way to Dunkeld with its mighty cathedral in Macbeth country before crossing the Forth Road Bridge on our return to Edinburgh.
