Coastline of Scotland

Myths, traditions and stories await in Scotland

Scotland may seem like a far-flung corner of the world, but with Archaeological Tours you can be there sooner than you think. Join us in September next year for an all-encompassing 17-day tour that will take you from the remote and wild isles to the bustling capital of Edinburgh.

Stand before renowned megaliths, sip a warming golden dram at a celebrated whisky distillery, visit the fabled Iona Island and its abbey, and take in the magnificent Isle of Skye. There are too many highlights to list where this adventure is concerned, but one we can mention is that you'll tour this wonderful country in the expert company of Peter Yeoman

Peter was, until recently, Head of Cultural Heritage at Historic Scotland, and he wrote the new official guidebooks for Iona Abbey, Stirling Castle and Edinburgh Castle. He contributed to the Lonely Planet guide to Scotland and teaches blue badge guides. He is a fantastic addition to this tour and will enhance your experience of Scotland greatly.
