Day 2 - Stirling & the Trossachs
Today’s included excursion takes you through the forested hills, stunning mountains and beautiful lochs of the Trossachs to the town of Stirling, the ancient capital of Scotland. Here the streets of the Old Town all wind upwards towards the castle. From the castle you can admire the surrounding landscape, known as ‘Braveheart Country’, following Hollywood’s interpretation of the life of William Wallace, Scotland’s first freedom fighter.
Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner
Day 3 - Edinburgh & Military Tattoo
After a leisurely morning we travel to Edinburgh, one of Europe’s great capital cities. Walk the Royal Mile, which links Castle Hill (the city’s oldest street), the Lawnmarket, High street and Cannongate and runs through the heart of the Old Town. Take time to discover the atmospheric ‘closes’ or alleys running rib-like off the backbone of the Mile. There is also a good choice of pubs, restaurants and teashops – so it’s easy to find refreshments while exploring.
In the evening, we take our seats for the Edinburgh Military Tattoo (admission included). The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo draws together a host of creative talent from four continents. With innovative production, heart-stopping sound, imaginative graphics, state-of-the-art lighting and specially commissioned fireworks, this is a 90-minute show not to be missed.
Included meals: Breakfast
Edinburgh Military Tattoo
Castlehill, the old-cobbled approach to the Esplanade, is a short walk of some 80 metres, though on a steep incline, and consequently, may prove difficult for some. In addition, there is on average, a further 60 metres followed by a dozen or so steps to be negotiated to reach the front rows of all spectator stands in the arena where generally the seating is quite steeply tiered.
All of Leger’s battlefield tours are accompanied by specialist guides. Their individual in-depth knowledge of warfare will be informative, as well as enhance your overall experience, as they recreate a fascinating perception of the history and factual events of each battle. Discover the actual catalysts for war, the strategies employed and the final, inevitable outcomes, as well as experiencing the emotional human side of the front line.
Please note: On certain tours, you may get tour guides other that the ones listed below.
