William Wallace and Braveheart, the Loch Ness Monster, Sir Walter Scott's Rob Roy, bagpipes and kilts, Bonnie Prince Charlie, moors and glens, clans and "lairds," golf, whisky and haggis—all originate from a country of unimaginable beauty and a turbulent history—Scotland. Start in Glasgow, the U.K. City of Architecture and Design, visit the Scottish Highlands (where you won't resist scanning the surface of the loch for Nessie) and end your tour in medieval yet cosmopolitan Edinburgh. An array of optional tours allows you to choose between stunning Eilean Donan Castle, St. Andrews, the birthplace of golf, and a two-day, post-tour stay in Edinburgh.
