In addition to airfare, the cost covers superior first class hotel rooms with private bath/shower for seven nights; full Scottish breakfast daily; six dinners including a Scottish banquet with entertainment; reserved seats for the Edinburgh Military Tattoo; welcome get-together drink; tea and freshly home-baked scones; sightseeing via luxury motorcoach with professional driver/guide and local guides; admissions and visits to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum, Duart Castle, Culloden Battlefield, Crathes Castle, Glamis Castle, St. Andrews and Edinburgh Castle; and all hotel service charges and taxes.
