Welcome to Slainte Scotland Tours blog and news section. Here we try to keep you up to date with our travels and tours. We are always on the road and we use this space to share our experiences, photos, videos and news.
Our travels through Scotland takes us to many places where we might want to question the information that has been displayed. Sometimes these 'inaccuracies' are due to generalisation or ignorance. Sometimes we learn something and are proven wrong. But this is a great way to learn the history of Scotland from a very unbiased point of view. As we know history can all be about who wrote it.
I had a great time with a group of Flemish tourists from the cruse ship (Greenock port). Speaking Afrikaans (as I can't speak Flemish) after 16 years was great. I am also very glad they liked every whisky they got :-)
The amazing and spectacular Melrose Abbey. A beautiful medieval abbey ruin, the place where the heart of Robert the Bruce is burried and a lovely village. All in one setting.
Have a look at this beautiful video made by John Duncan. It proves why you should 'make haste' to see Scotland. And if you decide to, then come talk to us first!
This quick clip of the swallows (or swift or house martins) were filmed under the roof of the first flooer of the Grant Tower at Urquhart Castle.
The iconic Forth Railway Bridge in Edinburgh was successful in receiving the acclaimed Unesco World Heritage Status. The Forth Railway bridge crosses the Water of Leith which is the river that becomes the Firth of Forth. The bridge crosses between South and North Queens ferry and is situated next to the newer Forth Road bridge.
Slainte Scotland are delighted to be exhibiting at the Visit Scotland Expo this year and we have put together a couple of videos which explain who we are and what we have to offer.
