Description

The first stop of your tour is just outside of Edinburgh at the South Queensferry. Here you will see the beautiful and spectacular works of industrial engineering, the UNESCO World Heritage Site - Forth Bridge. Then you will head to your next stop of the tour.  Before going to St Andrews, you'll have a coffee break in the small village of Falkland. This village is famous for its beauty and for being the perfect setting to represent Inverness in the Outlander series. Your third stop of the tour is St. Andrews. This seaside town is known for being the home of golf, but that is not all. See the historic coastline and visit the beach where the mythical scene of Chariots of Fire was filmed.

You will then have free time to explore St. Andrews on your own. After exploring St. Andrews continues on to Dunnottar Castle. This castle is situated on a cliff facing the North Sea and is considered by many to be the most beautiful castle in Scotland.
