Duration: 4 Days / 3 Nights

Day by Day

Day 1 - Thursday 23rd May - Welcome to Scotland

On arrival at the airport you will be met by a private driver who will transfer you to your city centre hotel to drop your bags. Your expert local city guide will be waiting for you here at your hotel and together you will head out to start exploring this unique city.

Immerse yourselves in the winding cobbled streets of historic Old Town Edinburgh as you enjoy a private walking tour. Discover the highlights of this unique capital city, and hear the tales of the winding streets as you wander up the ‘Royal Mile’ to the mighty ancient fortress which is Edinburgh Castle itself. Walk the ramparts atop castle rock and hear the tales of the One O’Clock gun and the stories of locals of times past.

Finish your day with a private tour of the atmospheric underground streets of Mary King’s Close, where a warren of 17th-century streets was walled up and forgotten about. Hear about the chilling crimes committed by dark inhabitants of old Edinburgh, or the everyday lives of the people who used to live here. The rest of the evening is free to relax as you wish.

Day 3 - Saturday 25th May - Kayaking Adventure & Golfing in Fife

Your guide will pick you up from your hotel this morning and together you head north into the Kingdom of Fife. Here you will head out onto the waters in kayaks with a local expert guide. Depending on the tides, weather and your experience you may get to paddle along this quirky coastline to the beach landing right by your next destination.

The delightful Kingsbarns golf club is situated on the same coastline as The Old Course (the ‘birthplace of golf’), so enjoy teeing off this afternoon after lunch in the clubhouse. A luxurious experience playing one of the most scenic rounds of golf in the country, which is ranked in the top 100 courses in the world and enjoys wonderful views along the whole 1.8 miles of coastline.

Your guide will take you to your unique hotel in St Andrews once your round is finished. Depending on the time you may be able to spend some time exploring this historic university town before your guide departs, leaving you to enjoy a last dinner in Scotland.

(Note: if the tides and weather are not suitable then you will explore a scenic loch in your kayaks. Perhaps discovering the ruins of an ancient castle.)

Day 4 - Sunday 26th May - Depart

A private transfer will collect you from your St Andrews accommodation and take you to Edinburgh airport to make your onward connections. Waving farewell for now but taking with you special memories and wonderful stories of your explorations.
