June - Scotland

In June we are returning to the UK to walk in Scotland. This historical route begins in the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh and continues with a trip to Stirling, one of the most important towns in the history of the country.

From here we head north to Fort William and the Isle of Skye and then we walk part of the Great Glen and continue across the waters of Loch Ness to Inverness. A day in the Highlands includes Cawdor Castle and the battlefield at Culloden before we travel south again to Balmoral the summer home of the Queen. We return for our last two nights to Saint Andrews, home of the apostle as well as golf.
