Inverness

About the city

Inverness is the nerve centre and tourist capital of the Highlands. A bustling port city located on the picturesque banks of the Ness River is a fantastic base to explore this Scottish region that contains some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain. But this city is worth a visit in its own right. Inverness is an interesting and attractive city with a rich variety of places to visit and things to do; from ancient castles to restaurants to a cruise on Loch Ness or a stroll along the river. The city itself is small, compact and easy to get around. The castle in town, perched picturesquely above the river, dominates the horizon. The castle’s present day structure is a 19th century imposing Neo-Norman red stone fortress still surrounded by part of its original bastion wall. Below the castle, the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery gives a good general overview of the development of the Highlands while medieval Church Street is home to the town’s oldest-surviving buildings. Contrary to the lore, Inverness castle is not where Macbeth murdered King Duncan; the actual site is a moat-and-drawbridge dream, Cawdor Castle, located just east of Inverness. The beautiful gothic construction is well worth a visit if only for its dazzling gardens. The ruins of Urquhart Castle, a local and national icon and one of the most photographed sites of the region, are on the north side of the Loch. This is where most sightings of the famous monster have occurred. Nowadays, Inverness is a modern city, with all the modern accommodations and amenities one could expect from a major city. There are many lovely riverside restaurants and bustling pavement cafes as well as a wide range of specialist retailers in the historic Old Town and Victorian Market. Whether it’s roaming the streets of the city itself or heading out into the Highlands of Scotland for a day trip, Inverness definitely stands as one of those ultimately must-see destinations in the United Kingdom.

Edinburgh

About the city

Capital of the medieval kingdom of Scotland, Edinburgh is arguably the most beautiful city in Northern Europe. Still the centre of Scotland’s autonomous administrative establishments, Edinburg has become neither too modernized to be cold nor too large to be unattractive. Medieval alleyways cluster around an imposing castle, elegant 18th century townhouses sweep around lush parks, and culture thrives. Unquestioned centrepiece of the city, Edinburgh Castle looms into view around street corners for miles around. 11th century Queen Margaret’s Chapel, the oldest building in Edinburg, is contained within the castle walls. Walking towards the palace, you’ll pass the medieval dwelling called Gladstone’s Land, and Lady Stair’s House, a 17th century town house containing memorabilia of Scotland’s literary trinity of Burns, Scott and Stevenson. The final lap of the Mile, the city's old quarter, is the Canongate Tolbooth that houses the People's Story Museum and is one of its most recognizable landmarks. For a sweeping view of the city, climb Arthur’s Seat, a dormant volcano located in Holyrood Park. Calton Hill offers, as well, beautiful views of Edinburgh. But there's more to Edinburgh than sightseeing. For some urban flair check in to Stockbridge, a quaint community full of students, coffeeshops and good pubs. Every August the city celebrates the Edinburgh International Festival, three weeks of the finest music, theatre, opera and dance. Thousands of culture-minded visitors congregate here and the city does its best to keep them happy.

Edinburgh Super Saver: Royal Edinburgh History Experience and Ghostly Underground Vaults History Tour

day 9 - 11am w/o Palace & 3pm

Royal Edinburgh History Experience (11am, 90 mins)
Meet your guide in central Edinburgh and set out to explore the historic streets and UNESCO-listed monuments of the Old Town. Stroll along the famous Royal Mile and Canongate, admire the historic architecture and see a different side to the city as you wander the ancient alleyways and hidden closes that surround the royal palace. Along the way, enjoy the age-old Scottish tradition of storytelling as your guide recounts tales of royal ceremonies, scandals and bloody battles, bringing history to life right before your eyes. Walk the streets where Bonnie Prince Charlie led rebellious Jacobites in revolt and see the local haunts where infamous thief Deacon Brodie led his double life. Arrive at the magnificent Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official residence of The Queen in Scotland, where you’ll learn the dramatic history of the short reign of Mary, Queen of Scots and hear about the annual visits of Her Majesty The Queen. Finally, bid your guide farewell and explore the Palace of Holyroodhouse independently (included admission optional). Marvel over the opulent state apartments, admire the exquisite royal furnishings and artworks, and visit the romantic ruins of the 12th century Holyrood Abbey.

Ghostly Underground Vaults History Tour (3pm, 75 mins)
This afternoon, you’ll greet your guide on the High Street, beside St. Giles High Kirk. Following your cloaked guide, you’ll weave your wicked way through the shadow-shrouded streets of Edinburgh’s Old Tower and gain insight into Edinburgh’s dark history. After the spooky scene has been established, descend to the vaults beneath Blair Street and feel a morbid chill permeate the air. Tentatively wander through darkened passages and hear gruesome tales of torture, murder and bodysnatching. Ghost stories galore, you’ll be sensitive to a cold breath on the back of your neck and the flicker of a candle in the distance. After 1.5 hours of exploration, return to daylight and bid your guide farewell.
