Note this is a Sample Itinerary: Hotels and routes may change. You'll be emailed the final itinerary one month before departure.
Internationally recognized singer-songwriter Chuck Brodsky joins Raven Sinclaire and our Scotland partner, Rob Ellen, Medicine Show Radio, for a tour of history, intrigue and MUSIC! During our ten days together, we will experience breathtaking scenery, castles, museums and ancient historical sites during the day and live music at night, including some special private concerts.
Your tour includes stays in 4-star eco-friendly hotels when available, breakfast every day and 4 group dinners. Here's our tentative itinerary. The finalyzed tour may vary slightly and will be emailed to all participants closer to time:
Days 1-3: Fly into Edinburgh, rest for awhile or meander the Royal Mile before meeting for a group dinner. Our first three days and nights will be spent in Edinburgh, seeing the sights around the gothic capital city of Scotland, including a visit to nearby Rosslyn Chapel and Glen. During our stay in the city, you may choose to meander through storybook neighborhoods and mysterious wynds and closes (narrow walking paths off of the streets) and hear some of the fascinating history that spans generations. You'll have a chance to explore the Royal Mile, museums and historical monuments while enjoying sights, sounds and tastes that are sure to be memorable. In the evenings, we will gather for great Scottish music and perhaps sample a single malt or two. Our home in Edinburgh will be the Radisson Blu Hotel in the City Centre.
Day 4-6: We travel to Pitlochry, the heart of Scotland, where we will take short day trips. Raven will share some of the dramatic history that has spawned legends such as William Wallace, Robert the Bruce, and Mary Queen of Scots while visiting sites such as Dunkeld Cathedral, Blair Atholl Distillery, the Pictish Dunfallandy stone and bronze age Crannog in Loch Tay, and 'Birnam Woods' mentioned in Shakespeare's famous Scottish Play. In the evenings, we will journey to local pubs for more live music. Our three night home in Pitlochry will be Fishers Hotel.
Day 7-9: We travel to Inverness, known as the ‘Highland Capital’, though it still retains its market town feel. We will visit the Highland Folk Museum, the site of the famous Battle of Culloden, visit the monster hunter of Loch Ness and have a history and whisky tasting presentation. You'll have a bit of free time to stroll the river that runs through the city. We will host a world class musician for a private hotel concert and visit iconic pubs, MacGregor's and Hootenanny's for more music. Our hotel home will be Lochardil House.
Day 10: We journey back to Edinburgh for an afternoon of your own exploration before meeting for our farewell group dinner and overnight in Leith, the eclectic port area with waterfront seafood bistros and traditional pubs. We will overnight at at Malmaison.
Day 11: Shuttles to the airport for those returning home.
