What You Can Expect

Da Vinci Code and Scottish Borders Small Group Day Trip from Edinburgh

Melrose Abbey, Scotland

With a maximum group size of 16 passengers, you are sure to have a memorable and personal experience on this day trip to locations made famous by Dan Brown's best-selling novel The Da Vinci Code. Traveling in a small group means you can reach out-of-the-way places to discover the real Scotland!

Departing Edinburgh, you will head south to the world-famous Scott's View, with stunning views over the Tweed Valley and Eildon Hills. From here, you will travel to Melrose with the opportunity to explore its great Border abbey, founded by the Cistercians in the 12th century. The Cistercian monks had very close connections with the Knights Templar and Melrose Abbey is the burial place of Robert the Bruce's heart, brought back from the crusades in Moorish Spain.
Following lunch in Melrose you will make your way to the stunning 15th-century Rosslyn Chapel, immortalized in The Da Vinci Code and an important site of beauty and history in its own right.

The tour includes a discount card, offering fantastic savings on top Edinburgh and Scotland visitor attractions, restaurants, pubs and shopping.

Winner of the Inaugural Scottish Thistle Award for Sustainable Tourism, October 2007.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Our driver "Eric" was excellent. We saw beautiful countryside, stopped at the William Wallace statue, had lunch in Melrose and then went to the Rosslyn chapel. I liked the smaller bus (16 passenger).
