Description

The tour starts with a modern marvel, the Forth Railway Bridge. As you cross into Fife your guide will tell you about the heroes of Scotland’s past who battled in this ancient kingdom.

Your first stop is the town of Dunfermline. Walk down the beautiful nave of Dunfermline Abbey^, the final resting place of Robert the Bruce, who battled for Scotland’s right to be a nation. Into Stirlingshire you will have a brief stop at the city of Stirling, site of the monument of Scottish hero William Wallace (whose life was dramatised in the film ‘Braveheart’). You’ll have time to stroll through the ancient streets that surround it. There is also the chance to explore the Stirling Castle^.

From Stirling, head to Bannockburn, the battlefield where Robert the Bruce routed the English in 1314.

The tour finishes with a historical mystery at Rosslyn Chapel^, made famous in Dan Brown’s novel, ‘The Da Vinci Code’. Is this the resting place of the Holy Grail? No one really knows, but you’ll love the chapel and the beautiful walk you can take through Roslin Glen and the ruins of Rosslyn Castle.
