About this Holiday...


Scotland - 4 Days - Travel on any date you want!

Social distancing? But you still want to go away this summer?

Star Tours is introducing Social distancing tours, to ensure our passenger's safety, comfort and peace of mind are paramount.

We are offering a new way to travel on our tours. Opposed to travellers booking multi-person tours, you may instead opt for small, private tours that are limited in number but still large in scope.

We appreciate that many of our passengers will want to travel by ensuring that their fellow travellers are individuals they know well, see often, and feel safe around — their immediate or extended family, or a close community of friends – their “social bubble”.

You can now travel in smaller groups ranging from two passengers up to sixteen passengers, on a limited number of itineraries that we are currently offering. See details for further information and pricing.

Suggested Itinerary

Day 1/4 Day 1 London - Gretna Green - Glasgow (Distance: 650 Kms)

Today morning Meet your personal Car driver/Tour manager and depart towards Gretna Green. We will be covering quite a distance today to reach Scotland, so ensure you carry your key essentials and devices for your entertainment for the journey.

In the afternoon we stop for lunch at Gretna Green, the UK's most famous place to get married and home of the world-famous Iron Forgeries. Today why not speak to your tour manager who can get you traditional shortbreads at a reasonable cost. The stop will only sell continental/English food, and there will be no fast food restaurants located within the services so make sure you are prepared.

We then board back onto the car and continue making our way North towards Scotland, making our way to the city of Glasgow. We expect to arrive in Glasgow, in the early evening. We make our way straight to Glasgow Cathedral, which is one of Scotland's most magnificent medieval buildings, Glasgow Cathedral is the only one on the Scottish mainland to survive the Reformation of 1560 intact. If the Cathedral is open when we reach, we will go inside to see this fantastic medieval building.

Day 1/4
Day 2/4 Day 2 Glasgow - Loch Lomond - Fort William - Glasgow (Distance: 360 Kms)

After our breakfast head towards the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.

On arrival at Loch Lomond, why not enjoy an optional boat cruise; here appreciate the picturesque views of the highlands, whilst indulging in a warm cup of tea or coffee. The Loch Lomond or "Lake of the Elms" is a freshwater Scottish loch which crosses the Highland Boundary Fault, often considered the boundary between the lowlands of Central Scotland and the Highlands.

If you decide to forgo the Loch Lomond cruise you can spend the time admiring the scenic beauty from the shoreline of the Loch, which gives you picturesque views of the national park.

We then make our way along the scenic route towards Fort William, to visit the Nevis Range (Free time), On arrival, you can take a cable car (subject to operation) to Aonach Mòr on the Nevis range. Standing at 1,345 metres above sea level, it is a popular mountain destination.

We will also stop today at the Commando Memorial, which is a Category A listed monument in Lochaber, Scotland, dedicated to the men of the original British Commando Forces raised during World War II. Additionally, we visit the Neptune's staircase, which is a flight of eight locks on the Caledonian Canal. This amazing feat of engineering raises the canal by 19m over a quarter of a mile of continuous masonry and takes around 90 minutes for a boat to travel up or down the locks. Built by Thomas Telford between 1803 and 1822, it is the longest staircase lock flight in Scotland.

Day 2/4
Day 3/4 Day 3 Glasgow - Edinburgh - Glasgow (Distance: 160 Kms)

After breakfast today we drive to Edinburgh, which is Scotland's compact, hilly capital; with its medieval Old Town and neoclassical buildings.

En route, we stop for a photo stop at Falkirk Wheel which is a rotating boat lift in Scotland, connecting the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal. The world's first & only rotating boat lift was opened by her Majesty, The Queen in 2002. Then, we visit The Kelpies: 30-metre-high horse-head sculptures depicting Kelpies. The sculptures were designed by sculptor Andy Scott and were completed in October 2013. The Kelpies are a monument to horse powered heritage across Scotland.
