Scottish Textiles & Heritage Tour 2019
Experience the diversity of beautiful Scotland on this escorted 9 day (8 night) textiles and heritage tour through the colourful Scottish Highlands.
Join us this Autumn from 16-24 October 2019 for a unique opportunity to join historian and guide, Alison Balzer, for a fun week exploring the historic wonders of Inverness, Moray and Speyside before travelling through the spectacular mountain and coastal scenery of Torridon and the North West Coast of Scotland. For those with a keen interest in textiles, particularly Scottish wool, a highlight of the tour is free time spent at the Loch Ness Knit Festival to enjoy local workshops, crafts and entertainment over the course of two days. There is a lot to do in the Inverness area and we’ll be sure to offer you plenty of options to explore the local highlights.
With deep lochs, high mountains, a dramatic west coast, beautiful beaches, historic castles, quaint Highland villages, fine food from our great Scottish larder, and a wee tipple (or two) at a handcrafted Scottish gin distillery there’s a little bit of everything on this tour through the magnificent Scottish Highlands. With so many great places to see in this part of Scotland you’ll be guided on a scenic route from arrival to Glasgow through Perthshire to our Highland capital of Inverness, before continuing to explore the dramatic north-west coast around Ullapool and Torridon. Enjoy our local activities, wildlife, scenery and of course our Scottish hospitality.
