What You Can Expect 
 

Meet your private driver-guide at 8.30am at your St. Andrews accommodation and jump aboard your minivan.

Take in the scenery as you drive up north past Perth and Dunkeld, to the Hermitage Woodland Walk.

During your walk, you will see Douglas Firs, the tallest trees in Britain, and may be lucky to see Red Squirrels, Pine Martens, Red Deer, on route to Ossians Hall and the Bracklinn Falls. The walk is about 1 mile on well-trodden paths.

Next we take time to experience a whisky distillery on a guided tour, and sample a wee dram of Scotch.

Then, free time in Pitlochry, a lovely Highland town popular in Victorian times as a Spa town. Take a wander down by the river, where you may be lucky enough to see a salmon or two leaping; do some shopping, or pop into one of the cafes or pubs for lunch (own expense).

After lunch we travel the few miles north to the Queen's View, a spectacular viewpoint over Loch Tummel, which Queen Victoria believed was named after her when she visited the area in 1866. But its believed to have been named for another queen 500 years earlier, Isabella, wife of Robert the Bruce. 

Make sure to get a few photos of this beauty spot before once again boarding the minivan to begin your journey south as we head back to St. Andrews.
