Scotland and England Tour

For a Scotland and England Tour you can choose from a two day tour to a 21 day road trip itinerary and anything in between. On shorter trips I would recommend concentrating on South West Scotland, the Scottish Borders, the English Lake District, Northumberland and Yorkshire. North of the border you can visit some of the many ruined abbeys which were in the firing line during the centuries of warfare between the two nations. Both coastlines are home to picturesque fishing villages such as Portpatrick, Kirkcudbright, North Berwick and Eyemouth with opportunities for bird watching and coastal walks. Just South of the border lies the famous Hadrian's Wall, built by the Romans around 130 AD, most of which is still standing along with some Roman villages. The Lake District is a lovely area to tour, often called the Highlands of England, it has National Park status and consists of large lakes and mountains, including the highest English mountain, Scaffell Pike. The county of Yorkshire is home to the cathedral city of York as well as Harrogate and the Yorkshire Moors, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

For those with more time I recommend including the panoramic Scottish Highlands into the itinerary and, if your schedule allows an island or two, such as Arran, Mull or Skye. Or perhaps you could consider venturing to the far north and touring the dramatic North Coast 500 route. Longer tours will also allow you to explore further south in England to beautiful places such as the Cotswolds, Bath, Somerset, Stratford-on-Avon and Oxford. 

Tours can be circular, starting and ending at the same location, or linear, finishing in a different part of Britain from where you start from. I can tailor make a tour to your criteria, to which I can add my expertise in drawing up the logistics of the itinerary and by suggesting where to stay and what to see on the route.
