Pre & Post Conference Tour

North Coast 500

There's nothing quite like the freedom of the long open road. Never-ending back roads, wide meandering country tracks and beautiful bends through some of Scotland's finest coastal scenery are just a few things you can expect along the North Coast 500 - Scotland's answer to Route 66.

The route starts in the northern city of Inverness, weaves along the west coast to Applecross and then northwards towards the bustling towns of Torridon and Ullapool. From there, you'll venture to some of the most northerly coastal points in Scotland, passing by Caithness and John o' Groats before heading south again through Dingwall and finally back to Inverness.

The Royal Scotsman Train

Scotland's own ‘Orient Express’ style train will take you through some of Scotland most beautiful scenery, all at a leisurely luxurious pace! Scheduled tours run over 2, 3, 4 or 7 nights.

A Malt Whisky Tour

Spend time in Speyside the home of many of the most famous names in whisky. Distillery tours, unique whisky tastings, superb food and accommodation make up a wonderful visit to this beautiful part of Scotland.

Island Hopping on the West Coast

Want to experience the best of Scotland's islands? Then we reckon an island hopping trip is just the thing for you.

Whether you've only got a couple of days or a couple of weeks, its well worth taking the time to explore a few islands and discover the unique character of each. The main island groups which are best suited for touring include the Inner Hebrides and the Outer Hebrides in the west of Scotland, and Orkney and Shetland in the north.

The Castle Trail

Step back (or drive back!) in time through the last millennium of our country's heritage and experience Scottish castles at their best on Scotland's only Castle Trail. A selection of thirteen of the world's most unique castles ranging from the fairy tale magic of Craigievar, to the rugged splendour of Kildrummy Castle ruins, to the elegant timelessness of the country house grandeur of Leith Hall.

Aberdeenshire is matchless in the richness of its castle tradition and Scotland's Castle Trail brings together some of the most splendid examples of castellated architecture on a clearly sign-posted tourist driving trail.

The Scottish Borders

From the rolling hills and moorland in the west to the gentle valleys and picturesque Berwickshire coastline in the east, it is easy to see why Sir Walter Scott was so enamoured with this peaceful region that he chose to build his beloved house, Abbotsford here.

Walking in this enthralling landscape, you can't help but imagine yourself transported back to the bygone world of Scott's sweeping romantic epics filled with daring outlaws and damsels in distress.

Loch Ness (and of course the monster!)

This beautiful loch is shrouded in mystery, all thanks to a long, thin green creature that circles the deep waters occasionally raising her head above the water for a picture.

It goes without saying that Nessie is our favourite monster, but the place where she lives is even more fascinating.
