Day one – collect your Tesla in Edinburgh and take the long way round to Perthshire

Your Tesla Model S (other models subject to availability) will be fully charged and waiting for you in Edinburgh, so throw your luggage in the vast boot and get ready for one of the most exhilarating driving experience you’re ever likely to have. Leave Edinburgh behind and take a circuitous route to the Gateway to the Highlands, and your first wonderful stop.

Your Castle Hotel in Perthshire

Within a stone’s throw of the charming Victorian tourist town of Pitlochry, your first accommodation is one of Scotland’s finest castle hotels. Carved from the historic rock of a hilltop, fairytale castle, this sumptuous property exhibits a quite astonishing attention to detail, with rooms designed with guests’ complete comfort in mind. Extensive, world-class spa facilities give way to eateries to suit any occasion, be it informal bar food or the very best fine dining.

Day three – across Scotland to the majestic west coast

If you’ve never taken the cross-country trip, you’re in for the most delightful of scenic treats amidst some of the UK’s most dramatic scenery. On the other hand, familiar roads take on a whole new dimension from the wheel of a Tesla, its effortless, silent power dispatching long-distance touring routes in near silence, as you make your way towards a quite wonderful hotel off the west coast.

Your hotel in Argyll

A longstanding favourite of ours, your hotel in Argyll is a quite extraordinary five-star property set on its own private island. Popular with the most discerning traveller, this grand and tranquil place is an oasis of calm, offering guests the opportunity to escape and unwind in the most fabulous surroundings. Again, the very best spa facilities, coupled with extraordinary dining and rooms of the very highest quality combine to make this a superb getaway.

Day five – onward journey home

Feel free to take the longest route back to Edinburgh, perhaps spoiling yourself with lunch along way, dropping off your Tesla in time to catch a flight home.


Two nights in Pitlochry followed by two nights in the west Highlands.


£1425 per person for March & November, £1545 per person for April & October, £1575 per person for May to September.

All prices are based on two adults sharing a deluxe double or twin en-suite room for four nights on a bed and breakfast basis in two five-star castle-style hotels, and five days’ rental of a Tesla Model S.

Before your departure, you will receive personalised holiday information including full directions and recommended routes from your specified starting point, and suggestions on places to visit depending on your interests and our local knowledge to help you get the most from your holiday.
