See Scotland’s glorious East on a guided tour and experience castles, history, highland cattle and golf, to find out why it's such a royal favourite

This six-night small group guided rail tour takes you in the footsteps of a long line of Kings and Queens.

With a maximum of 15 passengers per group, you can be sure of highly personal service from your knowledgeable tour leader on a McKinlay Kidd small group tour. Early booking strongly advised as places are strictly limited.
