10 day Castle Tour of Scotland 2018

So, after a highly enjoyable and successful tour around Ireland and Scotland in 2017, we are about to launch our second ever tour and this time, we’re tackling the ancient history of Scotland’s castles!!!

Come with us on a voyage around the incredible scenery Scotland has to offer, visiting castles such as Glamis Castle, St. Andrew’s Castle, Edinburgh Castle, Stirling Castle, as well as areas such as Glasgow, Loch Lomond, Glencoe Mountains, take a boat ride on Loch Ness, tour around St. Andrews and finish up in what I believe to be the most beautiful capital city in the world, Edinburgh. We will be travelling around the country by bus, touring castles*, as well as watching myself and Laura perform Live in one of our favourite locations in Glasgow.
