With Christmas and the New Year shortly upon us, if you still have a few presents to buy, you may think of travel vouchers as a unique gift. Maybe you would like to give a surprise travel gift – there are still offers available for a New Year break.

Edinburgh is a must for anyone looking for culture, great restaurants, superb shopping and amazing entertainment!

The Castle, Edinburgh’s landmark, overlooks the city’s cobbled streets with Arthur’s seat forming a dramatic backdrop.

It is such a lively and cosmopolitan capital throughout the year.

To get to Edinburgh is easy – via domestic flights from lots of regional airports, or by train.

If you have a little more time you can experience the Royal Scotsman train – some 36 guests can board and travel through breathtaking landscapes of glens, mountains and lochs and unspoilt coastlines, viewed from an open deck observation carriage or from the two dining cars whilst enjoying superb food and wines.

Along the way guests can disembark to visit grand country estates, ancient castles and historic whisky distilleries – even take part in clay pigeon shooting or fly fishing activities along the way!

Cabins have private facilities, all journeys start and end in Edinburgh, the duration is two nights and generally a one-night stay in the capital prior to the journey is advisable – this is known as The Highland Journey.

Hotels to stay in include the Balmoral, Du Vin, and The Scotsman, of course!!

Other ideas for breaks at this time of the year include: Dublin, Cork and London...
