Book a Tour of Scotland in January

The wild and fun times of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year are out of the way. We have spent lots of time reconnecting with family and friends, now is the time to think about planning something to look forward to for 2024. Why not book a tour of Scotland!

The month of January can seem a little less enjoyable and fun filled than previous months. Less sunlight, worse weather, Christmas credit card bills to pay, and potentially a little worse for wear from all the festivities.

An excellent remedy to cure the January post-holiday blues is to invest in yourself. You may be thinking of exercise regimes or taking up new hobbies as part of your New Years Resolutions, and all these are great. However the best way to combat the January blues is to book that once in a lifetime tour of Scotland you have been planning for yourself since before retirement, or promising to book for your family.

A city steeped in history. Scotland’s beautiful capital city Edinburgh is a seamless blend of old and new, with its medieval old town and elegant Georgian new town and the majestic Edinburgh Castle perched between it rising above it all.

A walk down some streets of the old town is to be transported back in time. History seems to be all around, Edinburgh will not disappoint if you are looking for a glimpse back in time to that of old Scotland. A city of high culture and politics, of art and literature, philosophy and Science.

A place of importance for Scotland then and now, Edinburgh Castle is home to the Scottish Crown Jewels & the Stone of Destiny used in the coronation of Scottish Kings and not far from there beneath Edinburgh’s Acropolis sits the Scottish Parliament again, after an absence of some 300 years. There is also an abundance of museums to visit, with the National Museum of Scotland a must see.
