“Rugged, colorful, and feisty,” says Rick Steves. From the dramatic scenery of the mountains, moors and heaths of the Highlands to 1,300+ years-old Edinburgh to brooding castles and Scottish whisky—“the water of life”—to a culture dating back to the ancient clans of the 12th century, Scotland is a must-visit destination. After a Glasgow tour we'll explore medieval Stirling Castle, stop a local distillery and gaze upon “The Bonnie Banks o' Loch Lomond". Visit “The Glen of Weeping” and learn about the 1692 Glencoe massacre, and cross over to the legendary Isle of Skye. We'll step onto the battlefield at Culloden Moor and visit Clava Cairns—a prehistoric burial ground. We'll end in Edinburgh—one of Europe's most striking cities.
