We only had two full days in Scotland and wanted to make the most of both of them. We hired Discreet Scotland for our first full day to visit two of Scotland's castles, Balmoral and Glamis. What we got was some of the most beautiful countryside scenery, a lovely day where we didn't have to do any of the driving (so no fighting over the map, GPS or anxiety about the other side of the road) and one of the nicest and fun to be with tour guides, Geoffrey (gosh, I hope I'm spelling that right) as well as the two castles. Talking with him in the car was equally as fun as the sights we got to see. He charmed my teenage daughters especially when they learned he could play AC/DC on the bagpipes! This is not a jammed packed tour. Driving from Edinburgh to Balmoral doesn't leave time for much else so don't plan to "see it all". We got exactly what we expected. First class service and a delightful first taste of Scotland. Our guide even stopped at a local stand and we enjoyed some of the best strawberries, blueberries and raspberries we've ever tasted! That little extra went a long way with us.
