Rosslyn Chapel, Scottish Borders and Glenkinchie Distillery Tour from Edinburgh
From US$50.47
Low Price Guarantee
Visit the rolling landscapes of Scotland’s majestic but less-visited Lowlands with the benefit of a local guide to lead the way on this full-day tour. As you visit sites from Rosslyn Chapel to Melrose, the last resting place of Robert the Bruce’s heart, the legends come to life. Finally, relax as you sample Lowland whiskies at a distillery with no worries of hopping back behind the wheel. 
What to Expect
Meet your guide on Edinburgh’s legendary Royal Mile and board your coach to the village of Roslin and 15th-century Rosslyn Chapel, as featured in Dan Brown’s bestselling novel, The Da Vinci Code.
Next, enjoy a scenic journey to the Scottish Borders, also known as the Lowlands, and the town of Melrose. You time to explore and buy lunch, with the option to visit Melrose Abbey, where King Robert the Bruce’s heart is buried.
As you head back towards Edinburgh, enjoy a photo stop at Scott’s View and capture the River Tweed valley, one of the favorite sights of author Sir Walter Scott.
Finally, visit Glenkinchie Distillery to learn how about whiskey production—and to sample them, of course.
Your coach drops you back at the Royal Mile.
