Trip Itinerary

Day 1 - Scotland or bust !
Fàilte gu Alba! This first Gaelic phrase may puzzle you: it has nothing to do with our good old “Welcome to Scotland! “. Get ready, the change of scenery is also in the language of our Scottish friends, and you will have the opportunity to hear it as soon as you get off the plane. Off to your accommodation in the Perthshire area, just one hour from the airport. A typical Scottish house awaits you at the foot of the famous Highlands.
Day 2 - Pitlochry
In the Perthshire region, the charming town of Pitlochry will plunge you directly into the imagination and magic that makes Scotland such a special place! Splendid mountains tower the region, offering walking opportunities for all levels. And at the end of the day after a good walk, some time for the parents, why not go and taste a good whiskey in a local distillery? We recommend Edradour, founded in 1825 and until recently the smallest one in Scotland. You won’t believe how charming it is and how good their whiskey is.
Day 3 - Blair Athol and Kilicrankie
The theme of this day will be culture! Start by visiting the charming village of Blair Atholl. Its main feature is certainly Blair Castle, an impressive, immaculate building, a stunning contrast to the wooded slopes overlooking the Garry River. Then, we’ll go to Killicrankie in the Perthshire region. This idyllic place nestled in a green forest reveals a viaduct worthy of the most beautiful romantic settings. But besides the promise of a bucolic village, Killicrankie was also the scene of a bloody battle, which took place during the Jacobite period. It is an opportunity to discover the geology, fauna and flora of this region of Scotland.
Day 4 - Schiehalion & Glen Lyon
Do you want to reach for the skies? Then today, we’ll head to Schiehallion, one of the best known Munros. Wassat? A munro is a summit in Scotland with an altitude of over 3,000 feet, or 914.4 metres! They are named in honour of Sir Hugh Munro, who created the first comprehensive list in 1891, the Munro’s Tables. This vertiginous triangular-shaped mountain is known all over Scotland. It is an excellent choice for a first Munro: the views are fantastic, and a path makes it easy to access. Then, you set out for a total immersion in beautiful Scottish landscapes. We’ll explore the longest, the most remote and most beautiful of Scotland’s glens, Glen Lyon! On the way, be sure to stop at the Glen Lyon Tea Room, a typical roadside tavern.
Day 5 - Mountain bike ride in Comrie
Put on your helmet, get on your bikes and lower your head like a racer: today it’s mountain bike day! And we have organized this excursion in a fine place, the charming village of Comrie. Ideally situated in the middle of Glen Lednock and Glen Artney, Comrie is a former winner of the UK’s most beautiful village award… No less! Its geological position on the Highlands Fault has resulted in more earthquakes than anywhere else in the UK.
Day 6 - Ben Lawers Nature Reserve
Walk along the majestic Loch Tay and you will soon find yourself in the Ben Lawers Nature Reserve. This is your trip’s enchanting detour: a magnificent mountain range surrounded by lochs and river lies in store. Can’t wait to put on those hiking boots? Go ahead and measure yourself against these reliefs that call out to you. There’s something for every level! Along the hiking trails, a few points of interest allow you to immerse yourself in these beautiful mountains. Starting with the village of Killin, small isolated shanties west of Loch Tay. Then on the edge of this same loch, don’t forget to go to the Scottish Crannog Center, a surprising hut on stilts.
Day 7 - Canyoning or rafting on the Tay River
Your journey is coming to an end, but we haven’t said our last word! The grand finale is the adventure activity that we have organized for you today: canyoning on the Tay River. Take on Scotland’s longest river for this family activity where everyone will have to hold on to the boat! Enjoy your last evening in your cosy Scottish home in the Perthshire area to remember all the beautiful things you have seen on this trip.
Day 8 - Return flight
Return your rental car, a faithful companion on the road during your trip, and fly home.
