We make our way northward to Preston to our overnight hotel, arriving in time for dinner.
Continuing our journey north, we arrive at our hotel on the outskirts of Stirling before dinner.
Royal Yacht Britannia & Edinburgh Military Tattoo
A morning at leisure before an early lunch of soup and sandwiches before we head into Edinburgh. Our first stop will be to the Former Royal Yacht Britannia, after which we head to the centre of Edinburgh where there is free time for shopping and sightseeing. We then take our reserved seats for the highlight of our holiday, the 9.00pm performance of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. We return to our hotel after the tattoo. (Dinner is not provided tonight). Please note: The Tattoo is located at the castle, a historic site in which the seating is outdoors and only accessible by many steps, therefore it is not suitable for people with walking difficulties.
Loch Katrine Cruise
We spend the morning at the hotel after our late night before taking in the spectacular scenery en route to Loch Katrine. Departing from the Trossochs Pier, we enjoy an awe-inspiring cruise on the world-famous Steamship Sir Walter Scott. Gliding past stunning Trossachs landmarks, the friendly crew will regale us with tales and legends of the Loch while we sit back and relax in comfort. Next, we head for the pretty, bustling tourist town of Callander, the location for the original Doctor Findlay’s Casebook TV series before heading back to our hotel.
We retrace our steps back to our overnight hotel in Preston.
We continue south back to the local area and home.
