Tickets [£75 per person] do not include:

- Saturday lunch - so either bring packed lunches or enough cash
- there is [surprisingly enough] no supermarket in the castle's vicinity - so if you drink alcohol, please BYOB [for Saturday night]

Saturday [07/11]

Heading north from Edinburgh, we pass the Forth Bridges, through Perthshire - surrounded by mountains, forests and salmon packed rivers.

We will stop at Dunkeld to visit the beautiful Cathedral and hear gruesome tales of the Wolf of Badenoch who was buried there.

We then head north to the Pass of Killicrankie where you will hear tales about the Jacobites and Bonnie Dundee. Lunch is in the small town of Aviemore in the Cairngorm National Park. Then it's off to lonely Culloden Battlefield, scene of the last major battle in Britain set in the Cairngorm National Park.

We then pass over the Kessock Bridge with views of the Black Isle and Cromarty Firth as we head for our lavish evening accommodation in a haunted Highland castle! After dinner in the fabulous dining hall put your dancing shoes on ready for a foot-stomping ceilidh! Lots of dancing, music and fun to be had tonight? Just watch out for any ghosts that might be trying to join in with the fun!

Sunday [08/11]
Winding our way down the West Coast of Scotland back to Edinburgh in a leisurely manner, we'll visit the monstrous Loch Ness, looking for the elusive monster as we go.

We'll then make a stop at the highest mountain in the UK, mighty Ben Nevis.

From there its into the mysterious and haunting Glencoe - areas that formed the backdrop to the movies "Braveheart" and "Rob Roy", then across the wilds of Rannoch Moor (watch out for the Stags) and south past historic Stirling, arriving back in Edinburgh early evening.
