SCOTTISH MOUNTAINS & MISTLETOE

Inclusive package

Enjoy an ‘early Christmas’ in the winter wonderland of Scotland. From the rich undulating Trossachs and peaceful banks of gently lapping lochs to festive cities and Scottish tradition, we explore the dramatic countryside by day before returning to a warming log fire and a festive welcome at our hotel in the evenings.  

The three star Winnock Hotel is an atmospheric 18th century Inn in the pretty village of Drymen near Loch Lomond. The property has been sensitively extended and refurbished, whilst retaining its traditional bars and log fires. All rooms offer a cosy and comfortable space to relax and unwind in with excellent facilities. There is no lift at this hotel.

Itinerary

Sunday We travel from Cornwall to Preston and enjoy an overnight stop at the Holiday Inn.

Monday Leaving Preston we venture yet further north into Scotland and get a tempting taste of the spectacular backdrops that we will enjoy throughout this warming winter tour. On arrival at the Winnock Hotel we enjoy a drinks reception.

Tuesday Today the city of Glasgow is playing host to its festive markets and our coach will drop us at the heart of this wonderfully regenerated city to enjoy St Enoch Square as it is transformed by a sparkling array of gifts and decorations. We return to Drymen for an afternoon cream tea and time in the lovely village.

Wednesday This morning we begin with a visit to Stirling. This traditional Scottish city is clustered around a large fortress and medieval old town. There will be time to see the highlights before we visit the famous Kelpies and have a guided tour to see the sculptures up close, both inside and out to marvel at the complexity and their engineering and art. This evening we enjoy our traditional Christmas dinner.

Thursday Today we delve into the heart of the Trossachs countryside. Our journey takes us through the ‘Highlands in miniature’ and one of the most beautiful regions of Scotland. We include visits to Aberfoyle and Callander, both popular visitor destinations. Our final night will be one to remember with a Hogmany Scottish dinner and show.

Friday After breakfast we will leave Scotland and make the journey back to Cornwall. We arrive home late in the evening.
