Wallis Family Goes to Scotland Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Your journey begins July 25th with a one-stop flight to Scotland. Arrive by PLANE to Edinburgh early in the morning to begin exploring. A private car service will take you to your hotel for two nights at the Jury's Inn.

Jurys Inn is one of the most conveniently located hotels in Edinburgh, just off the famous Royal Mile on Jeffrey Street in Old Town. Surrounded by beautiful architecture, it's perfect for touring Edinburgh Castle and the sights of Scotland's capital. Many destinations are within easy - and always interesting - walking distance.
Today, see the city from a City Sightseeing Tour Bus. Compare Old Town to the Georgian New Town. Hear about the hangings that took place in the Grass Market as you marvel at Castle Rock and hear about the attempts to capture Edinburgh Castle. See the Royal Mile which joins Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyrood House.

The next day is yours to fill with your own adventures in Edinburgh or book a tour of your choosing.

Inverness

From Edinburgh travel by TRAIN to Inverness. Crowned by a pink crenellated castle, the Highland capital has all the elements necessary for a memorable stay. Explore a thriving culinary scene, filled with lively pubs and bars, great shops and a spread of galleries and cultural attractions -- all within reach of the pretty banks of the River Ness.

Pick up your AUTOMOBILE (a 7 passenger van) in Inverness to make your way across the countryside at your own pace. The Jury Inn Inverness is your home base for two nights.

It is surrounded by charming villages, lush countryside and rolling hills. Stay at the beautiful Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel and Spa.

Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel and Spa

Your home for two nights, this luxury four-star hotel is the perfect spot for a country retreat. Fill your lungs with the freshest of air, take a walk in the countryside, swing in the trees at Go-Ape, or hire a bike and get off-road. The indoor pool is great for rainy days. In the sunshine, the terrace is dreamy for Afternoon Tea.

Pay a visit to nearby Buchanan Castle.
