V2 - Black Tomato - Robyn Metcalfe's Highland Adventure

Friday 16th August – Monday 19th August 2024

Duration: 4 Days / 3 Nights

Day by Day

Day 1 - Friday 16th August - Welcome to Scotland

On arrival at Edinburgh airport you will be met by the VIP team and whisked seamlessly through the airport to your awaiting guide who will also be your driver for the next 3 days.  From here, you will head north out of the city ready to start your Highland Adventure.

On the way you will have the option to stop off at Loch Level where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned and forced to abdicate in 1567.  Take the boat across to the tower and imagine what it must have been like for her during those final, fateful days.  This area is also a plethora of wildlife here so you can enjoy letting your senses come alive to the sound of the ducks calling and the birds chirping.

You’ll arrive in the sleepy village of Braemar in the late afternoon to check into your welcoming accommodation for the next 3 nights.

Overnight: Braemar | The Fife Arms
Room Type: Scottish Culture (accessible room)
Meals Included: Lunch

Day 2 - Saturday 17th August - Hiking the Hills

A day of adventure awaits today as you head out to explore some of the towering peaks that surround your hotel.   Although there is the option to conquer a Munro (mountain over 3000ft) there are also some incredible hikes around the lochs and through the forest trails where the Scot’s pine sway in the breeze and the sunlight dapples through their outstretched needles.  Your guide will discuss all of the options with you for today to make sure you make the most of your day.

Arrive back at the hotel in the late afternoon where you can perhaps indulge in a rejuvenating spa treatment or simply rest and relax after your energetic day.

Overnight: Braemar | The Fife Arms
Room Type: Scottish Culture (accessible room)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 3 - Sunday 18th August - Explorations of the Highlands

After a good nights sleep, this morning you will have a slightly more relaxing adventure.  Meet up with a local artist who will lead you on a guided journey on how to create art from the wonders of nature all around you.  Stop and feel as the nature surrounds you and learn how to connect with nature through art – don’t worry, you don’t need to have any artistic prowess to find this experience truly exceptional.

After spending some time letting the sounds and smells of the national park wash over you it is time to feel invigorated as you dip your toes (or your whole body!) into the babbling river, feeling every fibre of your being tingle as the mountain water immerses you.  Back on the land, warm up in the sauna and perhaps enjoy a wee warming dram before returning to your accommodation for the night.

Overnight: Braemar | The Fife Arms
Room Type: Scottish Culture (accessible room)
Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch

Day 4 - Monday 19th August - Return to Edinburgh

It is time to return to the bright lights of the city after your Wilderness Adventure.  On the way you can stop off to visit Glamis Castle, the former home of Queen Elizabeth – The Queen Mother and where Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II spent many happy holidays as a child.  Enjoy exploring the castle and the gardens with your guide as you learn more about it’s unique place in Scottish history.

After a wonderful morning, you will head onwards to Edinburgh where your guide will drop you off at your accommodation and say farewell – leaving you with memories that will last a lifetime.

Overnight: Edinburgh | SELF ARRANGED
Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch
