Visit proudstanding castles, heritage-rich cities and rugged Scottish sceneries as we spend a week gallivanting alongside the River Tay.

Stirling Castle, dating back to the 1500s,

of Scotlands Renaissance Kings and Queens.

Perched atop the city is the historic fortress, Edinburgh Castle,
the home of scotland's crown jewels as well as the Stone of Destiny,
