Enjoy a morning at leisure in Edinburgh, known as ‘Athens of the North’. Perhaps take a strong along the lanes and wynds of the Royal Mile, and gaze upon the Palace of Holyrood House and the impregnable Castle atop its rocky promontory. This afternoon, you’ll be transferred by coach to Glasgow, where you’ll have time for a bite to eat before heading by coach to the SSE Hydro for tonight’s concert, the undoubted highlight of the trip. Acknowledged as one of the world’s greatest living musical legends, André Rieu was classically trained and is now an accomplished violinist, an excellent conductor and a truly great showman. Rapt audiences sway with his delightful music, hum along and even dance in the aisles, so prepare yourself for a truly unforgettable evening.
Spend a glorious day in the Trossachs, an outstandingly beautiful area of mountains, lochs, rivers and woodlands steeped in history and forever associated with the likes of William Wallace, Rob Roy MacGregor and Mary Queen of Scots. Take in Loch Lomond, one of Scotland’s largest lochs, where you can admire the picture-perfect views, then continue to the Kelpies, a stunning 30-metre sculpture of two horseheads that is the largest equine sculpture in the world. Return to Edinburgh to enjoy a final evening at leisure in the city.
Transfer back to Edinburgh airport for your return flight at the end of a wonderful few days north of the border.

Not forgetting that Newmarket Holidays specialises in included and optional excursions to ensure your escorted tours are memorable from beginning to end.
When you choose an air holiday, you can either tour as many attractions and cultures as you can fit in or base yourself at a quiet resort and take your pick from a collection of excursions and day trips.

As Newmarket Holidays is all about offering the best value for money holidays, this competitive tour operator promises to price match any like-for-like escorted tour found cheaper elsewhere.
Please note: After many years of operation, Newmarket Holidays has decided to discontinue the UK and European coach breaks and tours departing from local pick-ups in the UK (as of 2019) to concentrate on its range of UK, European and Worldwide air holidays, ocean cruises and river cruises.
