So Scotland is on your bucket list…….perhaps you are one of the many Canadians whoseancestors were from Scotland, or you are a fan of Outlander, or one of the many other book series such as Harry Potter, John Rebus, or Dan Brown. What is the best way to explore this country you have read so much about?
The best way is by a self drive tour, but as I have said in some of my Facebook posts, this is not for the faint of heart. So here are some options with some itineraries for those travellers who wish to see Scotland……..
Travel Options to Explore Scotland
Obviously the best way to explore Scotland if not by car is by a small group tour (or even a chauffer driven tour) if you cannot drive yourself. There are a number of small group tours offered exploring parts of the country- i.e. the islands, the north of Scotland, the castles of Scotland, or even the Outlander experience…….all range in prices from $279 CAD for a 2 day tour to explore Loch Ness and the Inverness area to $1809 CAD for an 8 day Whisky Experience.
Large Group tour options also are plentiful……consider the 7 day trip offered by Trafalgar called Best of Scotland- priced from just $2138……very reasonable…..and everything is looked after……Royal Scottish Tours offers an 8 day option which is somewhat similar- priced from $2289.
And I have not even mentioned public transportation……although it is harder to reach certain remote areas, with careful planning and using a mixture of small group tours and public transportation, I think one could almost see everything one wanted to see! (And after all, that is what we travel consultants are for!)
All that to say, now is the time to live those travel dreams, sally forth and go explore……Scotland is waiting for you! Contact me today to make those travel dreams come true…….
