Meet your guide on Edinburgh’s legendary Royal Mile and board your coach to the village of Roslin and 15th-century Rosslyn Chapel, as featured in Dan Brown’s bestselling novel, The Da Vinci Code.

Next, enjoy a scenic journey to the Scottish Borders, also known as the Lowlands, and the pretty town of Melrose. You’ll have time to explore and buy lunch, and may choose to visit Melrose Abbey, where King Robert the Bruce’s heart is buried.

As you head back towards Edinburgh, enjoy a photo stop at Scott’s View and capture the River Tweed valley, one of the favorite sights of author Sir Walter Scott. Finally, visit Glenkinchie Distillery to learn how they make their whiskies—and sample them, of course. Your coach will drop you back at the Royal Mile.
