Scottish Sojourn, 8 Days Edinburgh Return with A&K

Though small in area, Scotland packs a big punch. With a wild untamed landscape of lochs and heathery glens, historic castles, famous battle sites and a vibrant capital city it’s a fascinating destination. There’s tartan too, the Grampian Mountains and of course the whisky. On this journey you’ll visit distilleries and taste some of the finest single malts on the planet. 

This is an Abercrombie & Kent private journey and can be tailor-made to fit with your travel dates and built around your desires.
