A departure airport transfer is included on Day 8, the last day of the tour. You may depart at any time following check out. We recommend arriving a few days early or extending time in Edinburgh to explore on your own.
Travelers should feel comfortable walking four to six miles each day and remaining on their feet for long periods of time. We’ll be spending much of our time outside and in rural areas, walking up and down stairs, and on dirt and cobblestone paths.
