Here’s the plan:

As we touch down in Scotland, our fun begins! Choose to either fly in to Glasgow and out of Edinburgh or choose Edinburgh round trip. We'll use a mix of public transport and private transfer to enjoy the historical centers and their sites. We'll balance our time with organized tours and independent downtime, with marquee sites for the first time visitor and local gems for the tenured visitor.

Day 1

Touch down in Scotland and meet us at arrivals where we'll make our way to Glasgow. There, check in with the local scene on the High Street and walk off that jet lag with a welcome dinner in true Scottish style.

Day 2

Our Glasgow adventure continues as we take in some of the local sites and enjoy noting the differences between each side of the Irish Sea. We'll spend the day enjoying all things Scottish. Harp participants can then settle in for our workshop time. We'll round out the day with dinner which is just a walk away from our hotel.

Day 3

Edinburgh awaits us with plenty to see and to do! We'll arrive in style by train and pull into Waverly Station. from here, we are just a short distance to our hotel. Just off the Royal Mile, we'll set out to enjoy the local area and enjoy our workshop as well as dinner.

Day 4

Edinburgh continues to delight and today we will take in one of the marquee events! After enjoying Rosslyn chapel to the south of town, we'll have an early afternoon workshop before heading to the world famous Military Tattoo at the Castle. This spectacular show never disappoints and promises to entertain and delight.

Day 5

We'll round out our time in Edinburgh with a few optional tours and destinations and complete our workshop series today. There will be plenty to choose from depending on your interests. From The Whiskey Experience to Holyrood Palace, we'll get you started in the right direction to enjoy all Edinburgh has to offer. We'll end the day with our signature farewell dinner then give everyone a little time to pack up before our airport transfers tomorrow.

Day 6: Departure Day
