Scotland Castle Tours Customized for You
Custom Scotland Castle Tours can be taken as a Scotland Self-Drive Tour or why not take it as a Scotland Chauffeur Driven Tour – just sit back and let one of our fantastic driver/guides take the wheel allowing you to take in the scenery without worrying about the road ahead? You can also mingle elements from our Custom Ireland Castle Tours with our Custom England Castle Tours to widen your stay in the British Isles.
We also have some Castles in Wales if you would like to include those in your Castle Vacation.
Day 1: Culcreuch Castle, Fintry, Scotland
Arrive at either Edinburgh or Glasgow Airport. You will be met at arrivals by your Driver/Guide to begin your personal Chauffeur Driven Vacation or as an alternative you can collect your car rental and start a Self Drive Tour. Whatever your mode of transport drive the short distance to Stirling where you can visit Stirling Castle and the William Wallace Monument. After lunch make your way to your own Culcreuch Castle and spend the rest of the day relaxing after your long flight.
Day 2: Barcaldine Castle, Benderloch, Scotland
Today you will drive through some of Scotland’s most beautiful scenery. You may like to take a boat trip on Loch Lomond before traveling on through the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park following the shores of the Loch North into the Highlands. Continue on to Oban and spend a pleasant afternoon exploring this seaside town before continuing on to your unique Castle accommodations for the night.
Day 3: Glengarry Castle, Invergarry, Scotland
Get an early start this morning and make your way to Fort William, stopping to admire the scenery in Glencoe en route.

From here continue North to your next castle accommodations which is situated on the shores of an idyllic Loch.
Day 4: Glengarry Castle, Invergarry, Scotland
Take a day trip to the Isle of Skye. Visit Eilean Donan Castle before crossing the land bridge over the sea to Skye. Explore the beautiful Armadale peninsula and visit Armadale Castle and gardens, the home of Clan MacDonald. From here you can choose to retrace the same road home or catch the ferry back to the mainland – the latter option will give you a chance to see the Glenfinnan Viaduct which you will have crossed over while on the Jacobite Steam Train.
Day 5: Tulloch Castle, Dingwall, Scotland
Travel further North into the Highlands – today will take you along the Shores of Loch Ness. Stop to visit Urquhart Castle and the Loch Ness Center at Drumnadrochit.

Day 6: Ackergill Tower, Wick, Scotland
Today it’s time to head for lands end as you make your way all the way North to John o’ Groats. Explore the coastal town of Thurso – if you wish to visit the Orkney Islands you will need to stay a second night in the area as this is a full day trip from Thurso. For now make your way to your unique accommodations, arriving early enough to enjoy the fabulous ocean views.
Day 7: Dalmunzie Castle, Moffat, Scotland
Time to head South once more. Travel back through Inverness and stop off at Culloden Battlefield to experience the incredible visitor center located there. From here you will enjoy a beautiful drive through the Cairngorms National Park to your next castle accommodations.
