Multi-Day Tours from Edinburgh

By Viator, July 2014

4 1 Reviews | Add your review

From its undeniably picturesque UNESCO World Heritage Old and New Towns to its cutting edge arts scene, Edinburgh has been inspiring travelers for generations, but there’s plenty more to see outside of the capital. Multi-day tours from Edinburgh cherry pick Scotland’s many attractions, starting and ending in the capital, so you don’t have to worry about transport connections or itinerary planning — just sit back and enjoy the ride.

With 2 or 3 days to explore, a popular option is to take in the highlights of the Scottish Highlands and multi-day tours combine sights like the famous Loch Ness, the city of Inverness and the scenic valley of Glencoe. Along with a scenic drive around the rugged Highlands countryside, you could also add a visit to the Isle of Skye to your itinerary or take a ride on the renowned Jacobite Steam Train, better known as the Hogwart Express train from the Harry Potter films.

Alternatively, tailor your trip to your interests and opt for historic tour of Scotland’s most notorious battlefields or discover the history of Scotch whisky by following the Speyside Whisky Trail. You don’t even have to stay in Scotland — take a journey to the historic Hadrian’s Wall, then cross the border to explore England’s idyllic Lake District.

If time isn’t an issue, you’ll be able to cram even more into a 4- or 5-day tour, adding extras like an island hopping excursion in the Hebrides; a hike in the Cairngorm National Park; a visit to Ben Nevis, Scotland’s highest peak; or a tour of the legendary Isle of Islay whisky distilleries. Or you could always choose the Best of Scotland Experience, which tours the Lowlands, the Northern Highlands, the West Coast and the Isle of Skye, checking off all the country’s main sights in one fell swoop.
