Discover Royal Scotland Self Drive Vacation-Self-drive from Edinburgh

Day 1: Edinburgh - Arrival
Upon arrival, pick up your rental car and check into your hotel. and nbsp;The rest of the day is at leisure to explore this historic city. With its stunning Georgian and Victorian architecture, and winding medieval streets, it's easy to see why Edinburgh has been listed as a World Heritage Site. The setting is captivating, Edinburgh Castle dominates the urban skyline, perched atop the crags of an ancient volcano right in the center of the city. Yet Edinburgh is not stuck in the past and the city is not all about bagpipes, shortbread, whisky, and tartan. In fact, the city is one of the most vibrant, cosmopolitan cities in Europe and is regularly voted as one of the most desirable places to live in the world.Accommodation at the Roxburghe Hotel or Ten Hill Place Hotel or similar

Day 2: Explore Edinburgh
Today, we recommend some visits that have a very firm royal connection. Of course there is Holyrood Palace, the official residence of the Queen on her visits to Scotland. There is also the Royal Yacht Britannia which has provided a home on the sea to the Royal Family on their travels. The Yacht is berthed in Leith and gives a great insight into Royal life.

Day 3: Edinburgh - St. Andrews - Perthshire

From the bridge you will enjoy views of the Forth Rail Bridge. We recommend that you travel the coastal route to St. Andrews, this will take you through some of the beautiful fishing villages. St. Andrews has an ancient history - named after the patron saint of Scotland and said to be the final resting place of his remains. It is also widely known as the birthplace of Golf and more recently the location where the young royal couple William and Kate met and fell in love while attending St. Andrews University. Wherever your interest lies, there will be a lot to see and do in this charming place. Later in the day, leave St. Andrews and head northwest into Perthshire.

Day 4: Perthshire - Crathie - Aberdeenshire
This morning, we recommend a visit to Glamis Castle. Glamis Castle was the childhood home of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, best known as Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. Her second daughter, Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdown, was born in the castle. Later that day, follow the A93 to Blairgowrie through an area known as ‘Royal Deeside'. The road now climbs steadily through the skiing reigns of Glenshee towards Braemar. You will pass Crathie where you can stop to see the church where the royal family attends Sunday service when on holiday at Balmoral Castle. You can also visit Balmoral Castle but check in advance regarding opening times as the castle is closed to visitors if the royal family is in residence.

Day 5: Aberdeenshire - Inverness
Travel today through the Grampian Mountains, along the A939, passing Tomintoul, the highest village in Great Britain, and onto Grantown on Spey. Here, you can visit one of the many whisky distilleries in the area. Continue onto Nairn, a popular seaside resort famous for its golf course and beautiful sandy beaches. Time permitting, you may wish to visit Cawdor Castle. The castle is best known for its literary connections to William Shakespeare's Scottish Play - Macbeth - the title character of the play was made Thane of Cawdor. The castle itself was built many years after the events of the play. (B) Accommodation at Knockomie House Hotel or Golf View Hotel or similar

Day 6: Inverness - Loch Ness - Oban
Leave Inverness and drive south. Follow the shores of Loch Ness - the most famous loch in Scotland. You may wish to stop at Urquhart Castle on the shores of the Loch. The castle is where most sightings of the famous Loch Ness Monster "Nessie" are reported. Continue on the A82 along the Caledonian Canal to Fort Augustus. Just before Fort William make a little detour to Glenfinnan along the A830. The Glenfinnan Monument is situated on the scenic "Road to the Isles". Set amid superb Highland scenery at the head of Loch Sheil, it was erected in 1815 in tribute to the clansmen who fought and died for the Jacobite cause. Despite its inspired beginnings, the 1745 campaign came to a grim conclusion on the Culloden Battlefield in 1746. You can find out more about Bonnie Prince Charlie's campaign at the visitor center. From here, continue via Fort William, situated at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain, and Loch Linnhe before stopping for the night in the Oban area.

Spend time at Lady Glassary Wood - site of standing stones and the Temple Wood stone circle. Find out more about the area in the Kilmartin House Museum of Ancient Culture, located within the town itself. In the south of the glen you will find the remains of the fortress of Dunadd, marking the royal center of Dalriada where ancient kings were crowned.
