Discover Scotland's Legends and Landscapes
To celebrate the release of Disney.Pixar's Brave, Edinburgh's five star boutique hotel, The Glasshouse, has partnered with award-winning Rabbie's Small Group Tours to create a special package to give guests the chance to explore the Legends and Landscape of Scotland.
Promising the best of both worlds, the new Legends and Landscape break includes two-nights in the ancient capital city and special one-day tour of the breathtaking Scottish Highlands, Glencoe and Loch Ness.
Nestled at the foot of Edinburgh's iconic Pagan landmark, Calton Hill and with panoramic views looking across the city to the Kingdom of Fife, The Glasshouse is the perfect base to discover Scotland's historic capital. From the atmospheric cobbled streets of the Old Town winding down to the rugged extinct volcano Arthur's Seat, or the acclaimed National Museum of Scotland and atmospheric Witchery Restaurant, there are surprises around every corner waiting to bring the stories and myths of Scotland to life.
Travelling in comfort in luxurious Mercedes mini-coaches and with a maximum of just 16 passengers, Rabbie's experienced and entertaining driver-guide will then take visitors of beaten track to experience the real magic of Scotland. With tour highlights including the magnificent and foreboding Glencoe, scene of the clan massacre of the MacDonalds by the Campbells in 1692, guests will head to Fort William and the beginning of the famous "Great Glen", before travelling along the Caledonian Canal to Fort Augustus, on the banks of Loch Ness.
Here guests can enjoy a boat trip or wander along the lochside to fully appreciate the spectacular views of the loch, before returning south to Edinburgh via "Monarch of the Glen" country and visit to scenic village of Pitlochry.
Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In the movie Brave, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.
Available from 9 July, The Glasshouse Hotel's Landscape and Legends package costs from £450 per room, based on two sharing and includes two nights bed and breakfast and a Rabbie's Loch Ness, Glencoe & Highlands Day Tour.
