Summary of The Day: We'll depart Edinburgh at 9:00am and travel South into the Scottish Borders stopping at the world famous Scott’s view with stunning views over the River Tweed and the Cheviot hills that form the border between Scotland and England. We'll take a short walk to the William Wallace statue, the first ever statue erected to Scotland’s most feared warrior. Stopping briefly for refreshments by the ruins of Jedburgh Abbey we'll continue our journey towards the border crossing at Carter Bar. Here we'll follow the old Roman Road known as Dere Street into Northumberland and continue over the moors to follow the route of Hadrian’s wall, built by Emperor Hadrian to keep the Scots out of the Roman Empire.
After lunch we can take the opportunity to explore some of the Roman remains and walk in the footsteps of the Roman Centurians who patrolled this desolate frontier of the Empire. Then we'll head South West and travel over Hartside Pass, at over 1900ft - on a clear day the hills and mountains of Scotland and the English Lake District are clearly visible. We'll follow the route of the old sheep drovers road towards the lively market town of Keswick where you will be dropped off at your accommodation and are then free to explore this charming town.
Summary of The Day: After breakfast we'll head a short distance out of town to the mysterious Castlerigg standing stones. Thought by many to have been built over 5,000 years ago and the scene of ancient rituals. Then we'll travel on to the shores of Ullswater, which is described as England’s most beautiful lake, where you can take a forest walk to see the mighty Aira Force waterfall.
Continuing south over the narrow and winding Kirkstone Pass, we'll stop at Lake Windermere where you have the option to take a leisurely cruise on the Lake or simply eat lunch while enjoying views of the mountains and lakes. After lunch we'll travel around the southern tip of Windermere and on towards Coniston Water. Shortly afterwards we'll arrive at the picturesque conservation village of Hawkeshead, where the poet William Wordsworth attended Grammar School.
After free time to explore the village we'll take the narrow country lanes north towards Grasmere, which Wordsworth described as “the loveliest spot that man hath found”. There is free time to visit Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage or enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Wordsworth Daffodil Garden by the River Rothy. In the late afternoon we'll return to Keswick.
Summary of The Day: Today we'll head for the Whinlatter Forest Park, over the Whinlatter pass, and into some of the most dramatic landscapes that the Lake District has to offer. Your journey takes us through the rural village of High Lorton, past Crummock Water and Buttermere and on towards the Honister mountain pass. Stopping amongst the mountains we'll have the opportunity to visit the old slate workings where a small number of Cumbrians continue to make their living.
Following refreshments we'll continue through the forests of Borrowdale, passing Derwent Water on your return to Keswick where there is free time for lunch and shopping. After lunch we'll begin our return journey by heading north towards the border. After crossing into Scotland we'll make a stop in Moffat, one of Scotland’s oldest Spa towns. From here it is a leisurely drive through the Galloway Hills back to Edinburgh. We'll arrive at 6 Waterloo Place at about 6:30pm.
