Quest for the Holy Grail Day Tour
Do you want to hear one of the greatest stories ever told? Then get on board our Quest for the Holy Grail. This fascinating tour will take you behind the headlines of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code and help you discover one of the most fascinating chapters in Scotland's history and one of the world's most enduring mysteries. On this tour we don't travel too far, but we do cover a lot of ground as we piece together the jigsaw of Scotland's medieval history.
Head North to Fife... This tour brings Scotland's medieval history to life, but we start with a more modern marvel, the Forth Railway Bridge. As we cross into Fife your guide will tell you about the heroes of Scotland's past who battled in this ancient kingdom.
Visit Dunfermline Abbey... Your first stop is the town of Dunfermline. Walk down the beautiful nave of Dunfermline Abbey, the final resting place of Robert the Bruce, who battled for Scotland's right to be a nation.
Explore Stirling Castle and the city... Into Stirlingshire and we stop at the beautiful city of Stirling, site of the monument of Scottish hero William Wallace (whose life was dramatised in the film Braveheart). You'll have ample time to stroll through the beautiful and ancient streets that surround it. There is also the chance to explore the stunning castle.
Visit the site of Scotland's greatest victory... From Stirling, we head to Bannockburn, the battlefield where Robert the Bruce routed the English in 1314.
Decode the mystery of Rosslyn Chapel... The tour finishes with a historical mystery at Rosslyn Chapel*, made famous in Dan Brown's novel the Da Vinci Code. Is this the resting place of the Holy Grail? No one really knows, but you'll love the chapel and the beautiful walk you can take through Roslin Glen and the ruins of Rosslyn Castle. .
