What we will do
  • We leave the port on a coach and head out to the fishing town of South Queensferry a short distance from Edinburgh. A short stop enables us to admire fabulous views of the river Forth and the sea with the road bridge and the more famous railway bridge, the Forth Bridge, a true engineering masterpiece from the Victorian era and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • We drive along the coastal road to reach out destination: the imposing Hopetoun House, a magnificent country house with a panoramic view of the river and surrounded by an idyllic setting.
  • We visit the amazing interiors of the house with its opulent gilded decorations and the classical motifs reflecting the noble splendour of the early 18th-century.
  • Hopetoun House is surrounded by a fabulous park covering 100 acres in a succession of gentle slopes, forests and well-tended gardens boasting a profusion of wild flowers. We take a stroll in this truly natural Eden and feel reinvigorated thanks to the beauty and tranquillity of the park, then return to the ship accompanied by a host of amazing memories.
