Responsible travel, small group escorted tour specialist, Rabbie’s (www.rabbies.com) has released new tours, featuring remote destinations like Bullers of Buchan to see puffins and Tranent for a tipple at the distillery known for the ‘Edinburgh Malt’. With an extensive 2021 programme of itineraries, Rabbie’s travel across the length and breadth of the UK and Republic of Ireland with a selection of over 100 tours.
Bookable from January 2021, highlights of the new itineraries include:
Have Cullen Skink for lunch, served with a bite from Dracula: An iconic Scottish view, Bow Fiddle Rock is simply exceptional. Through erosion this natural sight resembles the very tip of a bow and a sight to depict Scotland’s beauty. On the Fiddle Bow Rock, Slains Castle & the North East Coastal Trail, you will enjoy lunch in Cullen, a warming bowl of iconic Cullen Skink, a thick Scottish soup made of smoked haddock, potatoes and onions. After this, you will visit the iconic Slains Castle, ruins that inspired Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel, Dracula. Have a walk over the ruins of this archetypal vampire’s home and pick up some spooky supplies in the shop. Other highlights include a 17th century harbour, puffin spotting on 200ft cliffs and a trip to Scotland’s ‘leading light’. This is a one-day tour, departing from Aberdeen, with prices from £42.
Scottish whisky and gins tasting: Scotland is known to go hand in hand with beautiful scenery as well as a glass of native booze. Indulge in the charming seaside town of North Berwick filled with boutique shops as well as a family-owned distillery where you can enjoy a glass of gin before lunch! Or if an ‘Edinburgh Malt’ is more your thing, travellers will visit the Glenkinchie Distillery which produces rare Lowland style whisky, evoking fragrant flowers, dried cut grass, and nutty cereal. The one-day Whiskies & Gins of East Lothian tour, departs from Edinburgh, with prices from £37.
Fall for the gift of the gab, Gaelic myths and glorious beaches on the Emerald Isle: Jagged rocks jut out of the wild Atlantic Ocean; winding roads weave by beaches, pubs, and prehistoric remains; and a dolphin is the most famous resident of a quaint little village. This is the south-western edge of Ireland, where every horizon hides something curiously beautiful. On this three-day Dingle, Killarney & the Wild Atlantic Way tour, travellers discover the best of this famous area. On the way to and from this region, guests get to experience two of Ireland’s most spiritual locations at the monastic site of Glendalough and the Rock of Cashel, a ruined cathedral-fortress steeped in stories of St. Patrick. Join this journey from Dublin from €309.00 and discover the wild landscapes and sensational legends of South West Ireland.
