Full Tour Itinerary
First stop on our epic quest is majestic Linlithgow Palace, birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. Once the home of Scottish royalty, and now instantly recognisable to fans of Outlaw King and Outlander, its imposing stonework still echoes with 600 years of history.
After exploring its romantic ruins, we turn north to Scotland’s most famous battlefield – Bannockburn. Plant your feet on the same blood-soaked soil as Robert the Bruce and learn how his band of medieval heroes sent Edward II and his English army homewards to think again in 1314.
More history and heroes await at the nearby Wallace Monument, a towering stone memorial to Robert’s predecessor as Guardian of Scotland, real-life Braveheart William Wallace. Discover the truth about his famous life – and gruesome execution – and marvel at his fearsome 1.7m tall broadsword.
Our adventure continues as we return east, hugging the banks of the River Forth to Robert’s final resting place, Dunfermline. Marvel at the royal buildings and elaborate carvings dating back 1,000 years and visit the abbey, where Robert and other monarchs lie for eternity.
After paying our respects, our day ends as we return to Edinburgh across the Firth of Forth, complete with stunning views of another Scottish icon – the Forth Rail Bridge.
