Visit Scotland (itineraries)

Visit Scotland with one of our Scottish Castles itineraries: a seven-day trip in total autonomy following the travel guide we offer you in these pages.

Visit Scotland (itineraries)

Visit Scotland! You will be led through the countryside, along valleys and cliffs, to the discovery of a land full of precious gems.

Our suggestions may help you plan a week’s historic tour with special attention to some among Scotland’s most beautiful castles.

I jotted down my first draft of the itinerary before setting forth; I then added or amended a few parts once back.

A friend of mine successfully planned his holiday following our instructions almost to the letter since he hadn’t found the time to organize his itinerary before leaving. We hope that, upon your return, you will be as satisfied as he was.
