What are the Best Tours of Scotland?
Are you heading off to Scotland soon? The country is so vast and there are so many options on things to do, it might seem a little overwhelming at times! Not to worry though, as Scotland is one of my favorite places to travel to of all time, I have compiled together my top list of Tours of Scotland! Slainte!
Edinburgh Tours of Scotland
You can’t visit Edinburgh, or Scotland for that matter, without taking a tour of the Royal Mile. In an ancient city like Edinburgh, the streets are full of stories, history, life, and death. This historic street that stretches a mile through town from the Castle of Edinburgh to Holyrood Palace is a testament to the years Edinburgh has seen. You will learn all about how the city grew up and down, its joys, and its scars. Taking a guided trip along the royal mile is without doubt one of the best Tours of Scotland you will encounter.
To reach the outer brims of Edinburgh, or just to get around without paying for a taxi or taking a toll on your feet, the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour has a lot to offer. You get to hitch a ride and learn all about Edinburgh in one of my favorite Scotland Tours.
This was one of my first ever Tours of Scotland that I took as a wee lass coming to the country for the first time. This tour, however, is not for the faint of heart. In this tour, you enter into the depths of Edinburgh and learn about the underground lives and misery of the people who occupied the vaults. Ghosts are known to appear on this tour, and it’s not recommended for children under 12.
