Did you know that you can visit Scotland with Adventures by Disney? You can enjoy an amazing adventure in Scotland without having to worry about a thing! On an Adventures by Disney, everything is arranged for you and you are led by two expert guides throughout your journey!

A grand lake nestled in the Scottish Highlands served as the backdrop for the Disney-Pixar film “Brave.” The land is full of lush landscapes with ancient stone castles and a proud heritage just waiting for you to explore. With the Adventures by Disney Scotland itinerary, you and your family can discover the beauty that inspired the animated film.

As your family begins your adventure in Scotland, you can learn about the mysteries behind Nessie, the famous elusive creature that has been rumored to occupy Loch Ness. Then, you can decide whether you believe in its existence. Before you venture out to explore the dark waters yourself, a visit to the Loch Ness Exhibition Centre will put you in the right mindset through a presentation of both fact and lore about the loch. Your groups will even get to meet with a naturalist who is considered to be the world’s foremost expert on Loch Ness to hear more details and answer any questions you might have.

After the exhilarating opportunity to canoe (or cruise) across the waters and search for Nessie, you will disembark at the majestic Urquhart Castle. This spot is said to be the most popular for Nessie sightings. From here, the breathtaking view will have you in awe as you discover the once-mighty fortress.

Unlocking the mystery behind Loch Ness is just one of the many activities of the nine-day, eight-night family vacation to Scotland from Adventures by Disney.
