August Tours

Grand Tour of the Outer Hebrides

Staying at the Rob Roy Hotel, the Dark Island Hotel, the Cabarfeidh Hotel & The Duke of Gordon Hotel

 

8 DAYS | 5th August 2019

The special and cultural history of the Outer Hebrides stretches back thousands of years, and is a wonderful blend of both Gaelic and Scandinavian heritages unique to Scotland and the British Isles. With the network of causeways and ferries, you can easily go from the bottom of the Outer Hebrides to the top. The coastlines are rugged and the seascapes are breathtaking, dramatic cliffs with the whitest surf ends its oceanic journey from America, and spotlessly clean deserted beaches with cream coloured sand are accompanied by sound of the gulls as they ride the air currents. Why not join us on this fantastic island hopping adventure in the Outer Hebrides and experience the remote landscapes, slow pace of life and fascinating scenery for yourself.


Isle of Man History & Heritage Tour

Staying at The Ascot Hotel

 

5 DAYS | 13th August 2019

The cats have no tails, the sheep have four horns and the Coat of Arms has three legs; the Isle of Man may just be a short distance from the British mainland but it has a unique character that sets it apart. The pace of life is less hurried and the air is cleaner, as the ravages of industry have largely passed the island by. The scenery is a wild one, made of heather clad hills, wooded glens, rocky headlands and secluded coves.


The Edinburgh Tattoo, Royal Yacht & The Kelpies

Staying at The Doubletree by Hilton Westerwood Golf and Spa Resort

 

3 DAYS | 23rd August 2019

The Edinburgh Military Tattoo held every August, is the world’s most famous military spectacle; an unforgettable blend of music, colour, pomp and pageantry. Steep rocks form the dramatic back-drop to the Tattoo’s Castle setting and when subtle lighting picks out the lone piper playing a lament from the ramparts, few in the audience fail to be moved by the atmosphere. This event has all the ingredients for a truly memorable evening.
