June is the perfect time to take in this fabulous part of the World, with the birds singing a gentle breeze and scenery that will take your breath away this is where Scotland will steal your heart. Adding in the chance to see the two major cities of this proud nation this really is Scotland in a nutshell. With one of the most spectacular Hotels in the British Isles in a location that is simply sublime you are sure to say that this is a holiday to gauge all other holidays by!
Day One: Today we will pick you up from your local pick up points and take you on a journey north heading to the beautiful country of Scotland. Don't worry we have built in numerous breaks in the journey and with our luxury coach you will be arriving at our Hotel, the stunning Peebles Hydro, in no time feeling as if you have been whisked away on a magic carpet. Upon arrival check into your room and settle in before heading down to the restaurant for our dinner. Maybe you find time to take a night cap as the sun sets over the hills. Just take in that view!
Day Two: It's our first free day so after a bit of a lie in it's time for your first traditional Scottish breakfast. Then you are free to find your way around this beautiful Hotel, have a stroll in the grounds, visit the indoor pool (charges may apply) or book into the spa (charges will apply), visit the Picnic Shop or even the Gin Palace, or why not just sit in one of the lounges and read a good book, the choice is yours. Very soon it will be time for another dinner, and then it's time to chat to new found friends in the bar.
Day Three: Today is you chance to visit the Scottish Capital Edinburgh, so after another hearty Breakfast it's time to board our coach and head off for the short journey into Edinburgh. Here you'll have time to visit Princes Street, go shopping, visit the World famous castle, see Greyfriars Bobby Memorial, visit the Museum of Edinburgh or of course take in the Scottish Parliament building, to see it all jump on a Hop On Hop Off Bus, there's so much to see and do before heading back to the tranquility of our Hotel where the busy Chef has been preparing another gorgeous dinner. So much in one day!!!
Day Four: After another delicious breakfast, we have a more relaxing day as we head off on our Luxury coach to Gretna Green to see where so many have eloped and married, you never know you may catch a wedding in progress. After Gretna we head into the lovely local countryside to take in the spectacular views of this wonderful area before meandering back to the Peebles Hydro Hotel and yet another feast for the eyes and the appetite. After Dinner why not take an evening Summer Stroll and take in the gorgeous air before returing to your comfortable room and dreams of what has happened today.
Day Five: After another wonderful breakfast we re-board our coach for our journey again and this time head to the cosmopolitan city of Glasgow, very different to Edinburgh this city has alot to offer, journey time will be just over 90 mins. Once in Glasgow visit the Riverside Museum, what about Buchannans Street and don't forget the Botanic Gardens and Kibble Palace, or again the a Hop On Hop Off. Leaving Glasgow behind Peebles awaits and another chance to sample the Chefs talents at dinner, I wonder what it will be tonight? This evening enjoy a friendly chat in the lounge with your travelling companions, before heading upstairs.
Day Six: Today is something completely different as your Tour Manager and Driver, both of whom have been with you all week, have planned a mystery tour!! But where will it be? With the experience they have it is sure to be something that will give you memories for many a year to come, whatever it is and wherever it is, it should be a great day out! Returning to our Hotel there may just be enough time for another visit to the Gin Palace of even a quick swim before dinner.
Day Seven: Today is another free day so after breakfast why not head down in to the local town of Peebles after all it's only on your doorstep, make sure you have some money left for that piece of tartan and all those traditional Scottish goodies that make great gifts to take back to friends and family. Also leave enough time to take one last look at the grounds of the Hotel. Dinner tonight is a great opportunity to laugh and tell those wonderful holiday stories to your fellow holiday makers. Time for one last dram before bed?
Day Eight: Well sadly we reach that day were we have to say goodbye, so stock up well at breakfast as we have a long journey back down south, but don't worry there will be a good few stops on the way home to stretch your legs. The coach will be full of the sounds of people chatting and telling each other the tales that you have experienced
