Scotland in a Snapshot Tour Gallery

This exciting tour brings the best of Scotland in just one day. Your experienced guide(s) will provide insightful, engaging stories and the emotive history of the area along the way. The Tour provides a true understanding of how this stunning part of Scotland has developed over centuries with truly stunning scenery that will excite and amaze you with its rugged, natural beauty.

The tour will have stops at the evocative Caerlaverock Castle. The ancestral home to the powerful Maxwell family the double moated masterpiece in sandstone is one of only two triangular Castles in Europe. Near the border with England lies two towns of Gretna and Gretna Green. These neighbouring towns both have fascinating stories based on marriages and the role of women in munitions factories in WW1.

We take our whisky seriously (after all, it is our national drink) and the fabulous buildings and ethos of Annandale Distillery make for a great stop-off during the tour where you’ll learn how Scotland’s leading export is lovingly produced.

Around the former spa town of Moffat you’ll visit the 5th highest waterfall in Britain – known locally as the Grey Mare’s Tail. As we drive through the Lowther hills the views will be dominated by steep sided lush hills with long valleys and deep gorges. The spectacular waters of this area will see us stopping at lochs, streams and reservoirs which will take your breath away.

Testimonials

You managed to pack so much into the day (without it feeling crammed or us rushed) and nothing was a problem for you.  What value for money,  I'd certainly recommend you to anyone and even consider another trip because there's so much to see in this beautiful region. Thank you both for some wonderful memories.
