Shore Excursion from Edinburgh and South Queensferry

Once we pick you up we will head to St Andrews and visit the famous old and new courses and of course the swilken Bridge.

Once we leave St Andrews we will travel over the Tay Bridge and and head to Bonnie Dundee and Glamis Castle.
Glamis castle has housed the Lyon family since the late 16th Century, the current buildings date back all the way to the 17th Century.

Glamis was the childhood home of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, who married King George the VI, and was later known as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, her second daughter the late Princess Margaret was born here.  Glamis Castle is my personal favourite of the castles and is also the most furnished and one of the haunted castles in Scotland.

We can also stop at one of Scotland's famous Gastropubs for your lunch.

Depending on traffic we will also try and see as much of Edinburgh on the way back as well!

All tours are flexible and customisable to you.

I look forward to sharing this day with you!
