School Trip to Scotland - 5 Days
On arrival in Edinburgh, your bus will be waiting to take you to your hostel in Edinburgh. Depending on your arrival time, you will have the opportunity to get your first impressions of Edinburgh today.
After breakfast on the second day, you will go on a tour of Edinburgh. Scotland's historic capital is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. This is evidenced by the coveted World Heritage designation awarded to the medieval part of the city "Old Town" and the Georgian region "New Town". No matter what time of year you visit Edinburgh, its many museums, art galleries, theatres and international shops will ensure you have an unforgettable stay.
The tour includes a visit to Edinburgh Castle, from where you will have a wonderful view of the city. You will also have access to the "Honours of the Kingdom" exhibition, which includes the Scottish Crown Jewels and the famous "Stone of Destiny".
Today on the 3rd day you leave for County Fife. Here you will explore St. Andrews with its picturesque location on the North Sea. This small town on the north-east coast of Fife was chosen as a royal town in 1620. It is especially famous for its traditional university and as the home of golf. The famous Royal and Ancient Golf Club were founded here in 1754. The city goes back to an early Christian Celtic settlement (approx. 8th century). Around this time the relics of the Apostle Andrew were probably brought to this place. The St Andrew's Cross of the Scottish flag is traced back to him. The cathedral was founded in 1160. It was completed in 1326 and was destroyed by followers of John Knox during the Reformation. The ruins of the bishop's castle, built between the 13th and 16th centuries, are located just outside the city.
On today's 4th day, you will first drive to the Trossachs region, known as the region of lakes, whose breathtaking scenery will give you an insight into the beauty so well known to Scotland. At one of the most famous lakes, Loch Lomond, you will take a boat trip. Scotland's largest city Glasgow is then on the programme. It is a renowned centre for style, design and architecture. The city is direct, elegant, full of life and vitality - and one of the friendliest places you will ever see. In the past, Glasgow was a religious community, a university city, a commercial port, an industrial centre and the second city of the British Empire. As well as attractions such as George Square and the City Chambers, you will have the opportunity to visit St. Mungo's Cathedral (free admission, depending on church services). If you have enough time, it is worth visiting the Burrell Collection (free admission). Sir William Burrell has given his wife Constanze and the City of Glasgow over 9,000 works of art as gifts.
On the 5th day, your journey is unfortunately already over, and you will start your journey home.
