An awesome, action packed Hogmanay adventure of a lifetime. This New Year package includes a legendary 3 Day Skye High trip of Scotland, all your accommodation on tour and in Edinburgh for the Hogmanay celebrations. We’ll also throw in the hottest ticket in town, an Edinburgh Hogmanay Street Party Pass!
Check in from 3pm. Arrival day. Meet up with your Guide and trip mates, it’s time to get the Hogmanay festivities started and perhaps sample a few local beers in a couple of Edinburgh’s famous pubs. If you're arriving early and want some ideas about what to do in the city, pop in and see us on the Royal Mile for some ideas. We're the local experts!
Free time to get out and about and explore the best Edinburgh has to offer. Explore the Castle, the Old Town or why not breathe in some of that great Scottish air and climb Arthur's Seat, an extinct volcano. It’s a bit of a hike but you'll be rewarded with amazing views over the city, and on a clear day you can see the Forth Bridges and Highlands. Tonight, join us for the Torchlight Procession, the opening event for the festivities where you have the chance to carry your own torch. Then it’s on to our legendary HAGGiS ceilidh for a night of traditional Scottish dancing!
We kick off with the Aussie and Kiwi New Year with loads of lively Antipodeans to celebrate with! You can party on or use your free time to explore the Capital; there's the hustle and bustle of the Royal Mile running from the Castle to the Palace of Holyrood House or The Princes' Street Garden's Edinburgh Christmas Winter Wonderland. Dress up warm and make sure you grab your Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Street Party ticket before heading to the best New Year celebration in the world!
If you’re brave, you can choose to add a ‘Loony Dook’ to your booking! Along with a thousand other ‘loonies’ you can brave the freezing waters of the Firth of Forth. Alternatively, join hundreds of people who take to the city for a day of Edinburgh's Hogmanay festivities to start the New Year on a good foot.
We leave Edinburgh towards Stirling, home to legends such as William Wallace and Robert the Bruce and scene of many of Scotland’s most famous and bloody battles in the Wars of Independence.

Today we explore the beautiful Isle of Skye with its remote villages, awesome scenery and legendary MacLeod and MacDonald Clans.

We venture back to the to Fort Augustus by the shores of mighty Loch Ness for a party in Morag’s Lodge Hostel Bar.
We start the morning off by searching for a glimpse of the legendary beast as we travel along Loch Ness and past Urquhart castle dramatically poised on its shores. We travel to the capital of the Highlands, Loch Ness before making our way to Dunkeld with its mighty Cathedral.
