Perthshire – Scotland's Crowning Glory

The fabulous Crieff Hydro is the perfect Scottish retreat if you want to add a touch of luxury to your programme. Centrally located in Perthshire, our tour features a cruise on Loch Katrine, the Famous Grouse Experience, Scone Palace and the mighty Falkirk Wheel.
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Loch Katrine & The Famous Grouse Experience
We begin our day with a scenic drive along lesser known but no less beautiful Loch Earn, as we enter the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National park. From Loch Katrine, we embark on a 1 hour return steamship cruise, gliding past stunning Trossachs landmarks. After our cruise, we have free time for lunch in the bustling tourist town of Callander, before finishing our day with a guided tour and tasting at The Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret, Scotland’s oldest whisky distillery.

Day 3 Scone Palace & Black Watch Museum
This morning, we enjoy a visit to the Black Watch Castle & Museum in Perth. Located on one of Perth’s most beautiful parks, the North Inch, the museum castle dates back to the 1600s and tells the story of Scotland's elite military regiment. We enjoy lunch here or in Perth city, before visiting magnificent Scone Palace, once the crowning place of the Kings of Scotland, for a guided tour.

Day 4 Falkirk Wheel & Stirling
Today, we enjoy a trip on the famous Falkirk Wheel, the world’s only rotating boatlift, used to connect the Forth & Clyde and Union canals. An exceptional feat of engineering, the 50 minute journey lifts the boat up to join the Union Canal 35m above and allows the boat to sail smoothly onto the Union Canal. We spend the afternoon in Stirling, the ancient capital of Scotland. After free time for lunch, explore the streets of the old town that wind up towards the magnificent castle, 250ft up on its craggy rock. We return early afternoon to our hotel where we can relax and enjoy the facilities for one last time.

Day 5 Departure
After breakfast, we make our way home.
