In the morning, guests will be picked up from their hotels in central Edinburgh. To begin our tour, we will drive south, crossing the Scottish border into England. Our first stop will be at the Hirsel, a country house and estate where we will be able to enjoy some homemade treats. Then, we will venture to the island of Lindesfarne to visit Alnwick Castle. We will be able to explore the castle and its grounds for about 2.5 hours. Afterwards, we will begin the drive back to Edinburgh, where the tour will end upon arrival. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off times and locations.
Please note that tour routing and availability are subject to the tidal timetable at Lindisfarne which may result in the tour having to operate in reverse
