It’s no secret I love Scotland, perhaps in part because of my family heritage. Last year I spent time in the Hebrides and Highlands and my favorite city in all the world, Edinburgh. This time I’ll be going a different route…always keeping in mind a Scottish story!

Per our itinerary, “we’ll journey across the majestic Highlands – from the standing stones of Kilmartin Glen to the fields of Culloden— and travel by ferry to experience the beauty of four western islands—Iona, Mull, Skye, and Arran. Then, we’ll visit some of Scotland’s most atmospheric castles – Balmoral to Brodick, Cawdor to Inverary, Eilean Donan to Urquhart Castle on the banks of mysterious Loch Ness—and stroll through a dozen magnificent gardens.”
