Royalty and Scotland has been synonymous since the year 843, so there is much to see and experience on this tour!
What better way to start a tour about Royalty, than a little bit of history around one of Scotland’s heroines, Mary Queen of Scots. We visit Carberry Tower Mansion and Estate, where the 26 confederate lords took Mary into custody on that fateful 15th of June, before imprisoning her in Loch Leven Castle and ultimately ending her reign.
After a sombre start, we move onto something a little shinier, like the oldest Crown Jewels; as well as The Stone of Destiny (also called the Bethel Stone whereupon Kings and Queens were, and still are to this day, coronated at Edinburgh Castle.)
From Edinburgh Castle, we move on to Holyrood Palace where we will enjoy lunch at ‘The Café at the Palace’ before we visit the home of the British Royal Family.
After Holyrood Palace, we will head straight to the Royal Yacht Britannia to see the Queen Elizabeth II ship at Ocean Terminal for the rest of the afternoon.
Our tour will conclude with a trip back to the morning’s pick-up point.
