Editor’s Itinerary

Duration: 12 Days
From the quaint streets of Edinburgh to the remote lochs of the Highlands, Scotland is ripe for exploration. One of the best ways to discover its national parks, distilleries and stylish lodgings is on a driving tour. While the country has appealed to tourists since 1842, when it became a playground for the royals after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s first visit, there’s more reason to visit now than ever. In Edinburgh, a new crop of chefs is putting the city on the global foodie map, using Scotland’s natural bounty to create Michelin-starred menus fit for the 21st century. Outside the city, chic guesthouses and art-filled inns welcome gourmands and art aficionados who are interested in more than just whisky and golf. This relaxed 12-day driving trip takes visitors on a tour of Scotland’s stylish lodgings while leaving plenty of time for basking in the magnificence of the region’s diverse landscapes and natural features.
