Scotland, Highlands and Isles

From the untamed landscapes of the Isle of Skye, featuring dramatic cliffs and castles, to the enigmatic depths of Loch Ness in search of the legendary Nessie, our journey to Scotland will lead us through the iconic sites and tales that define this enchanting nation.

As our journey unfolds, we will explore ancient castles, visit a renowned distillery to savour the finest Scotch whiskies, and delve into the stirring history of Culloden. The bustling streets of Edinburgh will uncover the stories of inventors and novelists who were born in this remarkable city, and let us indulge in the unique flavours of haggis and other delicacies. You'll have the chance to witness a grand performance of the renowned Military Tattoo and discover the opulent world of royalty aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia.

CT Rating 3 / 5 - MODERATELY CHALLENGING: This journey features a relatively fast-paced itinerary with a good deal of coach travel and visits to some remote parts of Scotland.

What are Craig Journeys all about?

Our goal is to offer meaningful authentic experiences that inspire a deeper understanding of the world we inhabit. Through immersive sightseeing and engaging interactions with local people and cultural sites, we strive to foster a greater appreciation of our global community.

We go to great lengths to ensure the physical comfort of our members, providing excellent accommodations, delicious cuisine, comfortable transportation, and more. At the same time, we encourage them to embrace and engage with local customs.

Why should I book with Craig Travel?

All of our tours are carefully planned to provide a comfortable pace, quality accommodations, in-depth sightseeing, and fully inclusive pricing. We encourage you to compare our offerings with other tours available. Check to see exactly what is included and what extras you may be required to pay.

What do you mean by 'Fully Inclusive' pricing?

Almost all Craig Tours and Cruises include all prepaid costs, encompassing airfare and related taxes, hotel accommodations and/or cruise expenses with taxes and service fees, most meals as described for each departure, sightseeing with entrance fees, gratuities for included services (such as guides, drivers, hotel staff, porters), and even airport transfers. For those residing in southern Ontario, we provide transfers between your home and the airport in most areas, while other passengers receive a special credit or an overnight stay at an airport hotel, depending on the circumstances.

Not included in the published prices are personal services and items such as laundry, telephone calls, room service, and beverages with meals or otherwise (according to local customs; for example, beverages like water, tea, and coffee are typically not included in Europe except during breakfast). Shore excursions on ocean cruises are not included unless specified.

While taxes and fees are included in our prices, they always remain subject to change. Consequently, we may need to collect supplements to cover tax and fee increases that cannot be absorbed.
