Very little changes in the rural corners of the British Isles Scotland and Wales, and what does change, changes slowly. This sense of timelessness and absence of change is everywhere in Scotland and is reinforced by the fact that many families live on estates that have not changed hands for more than 600 years. To walk into a fortified house, castle or Georgian manor is to step into a dozen generations of living history where you can practically feel the sense of pride and dignity. On this adventure, discover the wonder of Edinburgh, hike to the summit of Arthur’s Seat, climb the mountains of Perthshire and play a round of golf on the Ryder Cup Championship course, Gleneagles.
