Exploring royal Scotland
Royalty has played a big part in Scotland’s national life. We are an ancient kingdom and it was under the Scottish King James VI that the crowns of Scotland and England were united in 1603. Today the royal connections are just as strong, and they take many forms.
Come on a regal journey through Scotland’s royal heartlands,
for an insider’s view of the residences, palaces and castles that have woven us into over two thousand years of history. From ancient royal feuds to modern-day royal romances.

the royal residence
in Edinburgh is the official residence of the Monarch when in Scotland. But it’s the iconic Edinburgh Castle, atop an ancient volcanic rock, that captures the imagination. With a private tour, you’ll be transported to the time of kings and queens, banquets and balls.
