Scotland: The Beautiful & The Brave Soirée 2019

Edinburgh, Perthshire, Isle of Skye, and Inverness-shire
August 22
–September 5, 2019


❖ Exclusive event:  Private fine dining inside Edinburgh Castle with VIP Royal Gallery seats to the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo followed by a Champagne discussion with one of the Tattoo producers.  We defy you not to be stirred by the sight and sound of the Tattoo, with massed marching bands from 52 Scottish regiments, many performers from overseas and fireworks exploding over the Castle’s esplanade.

❖ Get excited for private openings to the Palace of Holyroodhouse and Drummond Castle Gardens arranged for our group outside of public hours.

❖ Take tea with Lady Mansfield in her historic home at Scone Palace, the historic crowning place of Scottish kings.

❖ Loll about in utter luxury at Gleneagles spa, or hone your Scottish skills of fly fishing, horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, gundog wrangling, hawking, 4×4 off-roading or hiking.

❖ Be amazed by the wildest corners of Skye, with singing seals, remote tweed mills and soaring cliffs fringed by green ocean.  Tuck into Skye’s gastronomic Three Chimneys and tour Talisker Whisky Distillery.

❖ Keep your eyes peeled on a private cruise along creepily deep Loch Ness, for those monster humps. Then drown your disappointment with tea at Urquhart Castle

❖ Stand in the very stone circle at Craig na Dun where World War II nurse Claire Randall began her time travel in the smash hit Outlander novels and TV shows.

❖ Enjoy the services of private battlefield experts, charming local guides, tartan and tasting specialists and superb Scottish chefs – and of course your perfectly aged, if not very Scottish, single malt of a tour manager, Dana Conley.
