Description

Indulge in the very essence of Scotland's Highlands on our exclusive 'Highland Delights' private day tour, thoughtfully crafted by TRIPorganiser, a beloved family-run business committed to authentic travel experiences. Your adventure begins at the Kelpies, where majestic equine sculptures greet you with their awe-inspiring presence. Next, explore the time-frozen charm of Culross, a historic gem nestled on the Firth of Forth. Take a meandering drive through the enchanting landscapes of Glendevon, with its rolling hills and tranquil glens. As the journey draws to a close, discover the quaint allure of Dunkeld, where a riverside cathedral graces the town. With a fully customizable itinerary, your personal interests guide the way, ensuring a day of unforgettable moments in the heart of the Highlands. Join us for a day of delights, where Scotland's untamed beauty and rich history create a tapestry of cherished memories. This is a typical itinerary for this product Stop at: The Kelpies The 30 metre high Kelpies are truly a sight to behold for the first stop of this amazing tour. These hand-crafted stainless steel structures gleam in the sun of the River Carron; just like the shape-shifting spirits they depict. Please note: these statues are absolutely callosal, so have your cameras at the ready! Next Stop: Culross As we approach our next stop, you wouldn’t be wrong to think that you’ve stepped back in time! The quaint village of Culross was founded in the 6th century on the banks of the Firth of Forth and boasts streets and streets of beautifully preserved buildings, squares and gardens; including the 16th century Culross Palace, the village hall, rows of fishermen’s cottages, and of course the historic Mercat Cross. If you’re wanting to explore some of the best preserved examples of historic living in Scotland, Culross is the place to do it! Next Stop: Crieff Today however, Crieff is much more recognised for being the home of Scotlands oldest registered distillery, Glenturret. Or you could even borrow a book from Innerpeffray Library - founded in 1680, it’s Scotland’s oldest lending library! Crieff is a stop everyone will love. Final Stop: Dunkeld It seems we’ve saved the best till last with our final stop arriving at the beautiful 18th century town of Dunkeld. The historic site offers much to see and do, including Dunkeld Cathedral, The Cross marketplace, the quaint boutique stores of Brae Street and Atholl Street, and of course when the timing’s right; the Highland Games too! This stop is packed with amazing history; like did you know that William Shakespeare has a famous link with the area? Discover more with a visit to Dunkeld!
