Luxury Scotland Holidays planned by Edinburgh based Sandgrouse Travel

Luxury Scotland Holidays planned by Edinburgh based Sandgrouse Travel

We can tailormake your next holiday to include everything you dream of whilst here in Scotland. Our 'Luxury Scotland' itineraries can include anything you wish, from a round of golf at the famous St. Andrews Old Course to whisky tasting at a single malt distillery on Islay. With Sandgrouse Travel, you have access to extraordinary experiences, and you could even be staying in some of Scotland's best castles. The below series of photographs gives you a sneak peak, sometimes literally through the keyhole, into some of the great monuments to Scotland's fascinating history that you could be visiting soon


As a Scottish company who's founders and in-house travel designers have deep connections with the country, we feel very strongly about promoting our own 'backyard'. Over the last few weeks we have been busy discovering some of Scotland's most historic and captivating castles, castles often shrouded in legend and myth. We have visited ruins, folleys, look-outs and Baronial beasts to rival Europe's finest stately homes. Now we want to share our exciting finds with you, so speak to our Edinburgh based travel experts today to start planning your once-in-a-lifetime Scottish trip.

We want you to be able to explore Scotland properly. Which is why we provide you with either a tough Land Rover Defender, comfortable Land Rover Discovery or luxurious Range Rover. As an optional excursion within your tailor-made Scottish holiday, we can arrange for you to have one to one off-road driving tuition at the official Land Rover Experience Scotland centre. Here you will be able to choose from an array of specialist vehicles and learn the true capability of these vehicles.

Why not stay at Inverlochy Castle Hotel, the grand highland hotel. With Ben Nevis as a backdrop and it's own loch, guests are welcome to try their hand at trout fishing. If you are new to the sport or looking to improve, then Sandgrouse Travel can arrange a private fishing ghillie to take you to one of the many surrounding lochs such as Loch Garry. Here you can enjoy a full day of top class fly-fishing.)
