Looming over the city is Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny, used in the coronation of Scottish rulers. Arthur’s Seat is an imposing peak in Holyrood Park with sweeping views, and Calton Hill is topped with monuments and memorials., or just relax and unwind in a cozy pub.

If you've ever wanted to visit Scotland this is your chance. You won't find a better value or a better time to go!! Especially in July when the weather in Scotland is at it's best... AND who better to lead the charge than head brewer Rob Kathcart!!! This is going to be too much fun.
Edinburgh is a city steeped in a rich history. There has been a castle here at least since Roman times. So much rich history and culture to soak up... not to mention the best Scotch selection in the world.
We'll stop at the Dalwhinnie Distillery and Urquhart Castle on our way from Edinburgh to Inverness. On the way back from Inverness we'll drive through the Scottish Highland to the west coast fishing town of Oban and visit the famed Oban Distillery, and then continue on to visit Loch Lomond before returning to our hotel in Edinburgh.
Inverness is a city on Scotland’s northeast coast, where the River Ness meets the Moray Firth. It's the largest city and the cultural capital of the Scottish Highlands. Its Old Town features 19th-century Inverness Cathedral, the mostly 18th-century Old High Church and an indoor Victorian Market selling food, clothing and crafts. The contemporary Inverness Museum and Art Gallery traces local and Highland history. We'll be staying in the heart of the downtown where you can wander out in the morning, eat and drink in many of the fine local establishments, and stagger home at night!
