ROBERT THE BRUCE EXPERIENCE
- ROSSLYN CHAPEL
- TRAQUAIR HOUSE
- FLOORS CASTLE KELSO
This tour is for those fascinated by the religious and literary history of Scotland. The journey begins by going through the picturesque town of Peebles, full of relics from time gone by, world famous salmon fishing and home to the epic Beltane festival.
Follow the story of Sir Walter Scott and find a window into his soul as you see the house he designed.
Touch the bricks he laid before on to Dryburgh Abbey, his final resting place. Learn stories of renegade Catholic priests and exiled queens at Traquair House. See the finest Medieval church architecture from the 13th century at Melrose Abbey, where Robert the Bruce's heart lies buried, but the not the rest of him. Finally, walk the halls of Floors Castle and see collections of fine art and tapestries before unwinding with a riverside walk where you can enjoy the tranquillity in the peaceful glades of the woodland.
