Board your mini-van and depart Edinburgh in a small group, headed towards the West Highlands and the Scottish mountains.

There will be a brief stop at Stirling Castle, before continues on to Doune Castle, which was built more than 600 years ago. It also served as the filming location for "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (ticket not included, to be paid on site).
