Rosslyn Chapel, the Scottish Borders & National Mining Museum

I went on one of Lothian Motorcoaches Winters Tours to Rosslyn Chapel, the Scottish Borders & National Mining Museum Scotland on the 9/10/18. 

Waiting at Charlotte Square for the Coach but it was not there bigger coach, it was one of there mini coaches.  Which was pretty cool.

 

On-board was our adorable Guide Scott and our wonderful driver Graham, which was great to see them again as there are the dream team.

Our first destination was Rosslyn Chapel, which was nice but I got myself a bit flustered because there was so many people inside and I didn’t knew where to put myself.   just had one of these mornings however I just had a walk around outside before getting back on the mini coach.

 

 

Our second destination was Scottish Borders amd i had a walk round to see Melrose Abbey, priorwood garden and then had a nice cup of tea and a big scone in Dalgetty Alexander & sons cafe.

 

Our final destination was the National Mining Museum Scotland, which was amazing and interesting to learn more about Mining back in the days.

Our tour guide was great showing us around but i forgotten his name, the guide was fantastic and helpful explain everything to us.  Also walked around some great displays too.

 

The overall of the day tour with Lothian Motorcoaches was outstanding from start to finish, another great experience and also my 6 Day Tour with them.

For me the National Mining Museum Scotland was my best part of the day, just love having these walking guide tours in interesting places.

Scittish Day Tour – Distillery Tour, Scone Palace & Viewpoint of the 3 Bridges

I went on a Scottish day Tour with Lothian Motorcoaches to the Distillery Tour, Scone Palace & Viewpoint of the 3 Bridges 7/9/18

When I got to Charlotte Sqaure early before the Coach arrived, this man walking towards me and said “im Douglas, the guide for the tour” i said “you forgotten something thing ___ your coach hehe” Douglas replyed “it will be here soon, i stay close from here and James is driving the coach”

 

When everyone boarded the Coach, we headed to our fist destination which was the  Distillery Tour (Famous Grouse Experience) this was very interesting to find out more of the Famous Grouse.   Could not take picture for policy regulations  but i learned so much anyways from our Guidr Diane at the Distillery Tour.

After the great experience from the Famous Grouse, we headed back on the coach to our sencond destination, which was Scone Palace.

This was amazing to see, having a look around inside the palace was huge and interesting to see everything displayed.  Could not take picturesin side for policy regulations.

After I took a look around there grounds outside, which was beautiful and relaxin.  Took a few photos, as you are allowed to do that.    Before leaving i saw an Owl called Haggis which was adorable.

Next we are all heading to our final destination which was the Viewpoint of the 3 Bridges.  I’ve seen this so many times but it’s always great to come back to and see.

A massive thank you to James our driver & Douglas our Guide for making this day enjoyable, just perfect.

The outcome of this day trip was outstanding from start to finish once again, really spectacular and the more I go on Lothian Motorcoaches Tour, the more I get hooked on.  Yes I’m  definitely a big fan of theirs now 100% behind them.

Scottish Day Tour -Aviemore & The Cairngorms

I went on a Scottish Day Tour with Lothian Motorcoaches to Pitlochry, Avimore & The Cairngorms 14/8/18.

Everyone who was going on the Tour had to get the Coach at Charlotte Square, when the Coach arrived we met our Guide Scott and our driver Chris.

Our first destination was Pitlochry where we had a long walk round the Dam, bouncy bridge and the main street then we headed back to the Coach. It was amazing walk, just what I needed to warm up in the morning hehe also the views of it was great.

Our second destination was The Cairngorms where we got the train to the top of the mountain, which was pretty cool as I’ve never done it before.


Once we got to the top of the mountain, the view was totally magic. A bit of drizzly of rain but it started to come good with the sun coming out.

After seeing the the view, we went in the cafe to get something to eat before heading back on the coach to our final destination.

Because of the weather with the rain, there was a change of place, instead of going for a walk in the Heritage, we went to House of Bruar. Having a look around and buying chocolate fudge and having a cup of coffee was nice but the weather turned out nice when we were at the Cairngorms so I was disappointed we didn’t change to having a walk in the Heritage afterall.

The outcome of the day Tour was incredible from the start to finish, my best thing of the day was The Cairngorms, just the thought standing on top a mountain looking a the view was just amazing.

Well recommended to visit and have that great experience. Can’t wait to visit sometime in the future.
