Overview

This tour brings Scotland’s medieval history to life, but we start with a more modern marvel, the Forth Railway Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As we cross into Fife your guide will tell you about the heroes of Scotland’s past who battled in this ancient kingdom.

Your first stop is the town of Dunfermline. See the beautiful Dunfermline Abbey* and visit the Abbey Church. The nave is the final resting place of Robert the Bruce, who battled for Scotland’s right to be a nation.

Into Stirlingshire and we stop in the city of Stirling, you’ll have ample time to stroll through the beautiful and ancient streets that make up the old town of this city. Or visit arguably the most important Castle in Scottish history, Stirling Castle*. From Stirling, we head to Bannockburn, the battlefield where Robert the Bruce routed the English in 1314. Time permitting, there will be a quick stop to view the statue of Robert the Bruce on his horse.

The tour finishes with one of the most iconic historical mysteries at Rosslyn Chapel*, made famous in Dan Brown’s novel the Da Vinci Code. Is this the resting place of the Holy Grail? No one really knows, but you’ll love the chapel and the beautiful walk you can take through Roslin Glen to the ruins of the Castle.
