The Main Event

Fàilte Gu Alba! Welcome to Scotland,  where you can embark on a thrilling adventure to "Become a Highlander for a Day" in the enchanting city of Edinburgh. 

Step into the world of Scottish culture and tradition like never before.

Your day begins with an immersive transformation as you don traditional Scottish clothing, including your very own kilt, embracing the spirit of a Highlander. Your journey continues with a guided tour of Edinburgh, where you'll uncover the rich tapestry of Scotland's history and heritage. 

But the real highlight of the day comes as you step into an underground prison lost for centuries after the Great Edinburgh Fire. Here, you'll time-travel to the past, becoming a Highlander on a mission to find the elusive Bonnie Prince Charlie, all while surrounded by hand-drawn art, traditional music, and a captivating story crafted by historians.

After this exhilarating experience, indulge in a traditional Scottish lunch at a haunted pub, adding a thrilling twist to your meal. 

The adventure continues with a deep dive into Scotland's liquid gold – whisky. From the aromatic notes of Speyside to the smoky allure of Islay whisky, you'll develop a profound appreciation for Scottish culture and heritage. Adults will savour the chance to sample four different single malts, while those under drinking age can enjoy Scotland's beloved "national" soft drink, Irn Bru. 

As the day draws to a close, you'll have the opportunity to explore the vibrant city of Edinburgh at your leisure, with shopping, dining, and sightseeing awaiting your discovery. 

This immersive journey will leave you with unforgettable memories of Scotland's rich traditions and a newfound love for its captivating history. 

So, don your kilt and embrace the Highlander within you – Edinburgh is waiting to welcome you on this extraordinary adventure!
