The restaurant has a wide whisky selection and we recommend you enjoy a few drams. However maybe not to many as you have an full itinerary in the morning.
After breakfast your Private Driver will escort you to Hopetoun House. Hopetoun house is a 5 star Scottish tourist attraction and is regarded as one of the most beautiful estates in Scotland.
Set in 6500 acres of land, Hopetoun House has featured in four seasons of the hit series Outlander. We suggest taking a leisurely stroll and visiting the recently restored Hopetoun workshop which is classified as A listed building.
After exploring Hopetoun House, your chauffeur driver will take you to the Star & Garter for some well-deserved lunch. The Star & Garter was built the same year as Scottish legend Robbie Burns was born but did not become a public house until the 1840’s. This homily Georgian mansion serves hearty food and a selection of fine Scottish ales.
After lunch your private driver will escort you to Blackness Castle. Blackness castle was built in the 15th century by the Crichtons and is regarded as a stalwart among Scottish castles. The appearance of Blackness Castle resembles a ship and thus the castle gained the nickname the “the ship that never sailed”. The castle holds tremendous views over the Fife and the Firth of Forth. The castle has played an important role in many TV series and films including Mary Queen of Scots, Outlaw King and Outlander film.
After breakfast your driver will escort you to Linlithgow Palace. Linlithgow Palace is one of Scotland’s finest archaic buildings. With beautiful views over Linlithgow lake and surrounded by a well-manicured country park, the palace is often described to be situated in a “fairy tale setting”. The Stewart Kings and Queens used to regularly reside in the palace due to its grandiose nature. Just like Blackness castle, Linlithgow Palace was used for filming in the famous Outlander series.
Your chauffeur driver will take you to The Park Bistro. The Park Bistro is situated just outside Linlithgow and is set beside the picturesque Union canal. Many of the ingredients are sourced from local farms based in West Lothian. The menu has a vast choice of Scottish favourites from Beer Battered Haddock to Steak Pie. There are not many better places in West Lothian to enjoy a spot of lunch and enjoy the glistening union canal.
After lunch your driver will drop you off at the Linlithgow canal centre. You will embark upon a 2 ½ hour cruise from Linlithgow to Avon Aqueduct. Enjoy the crisp waters, leafy scenery before you reach the Avon Aqueduct, the second biggest aqueduct in Britain. Onboard you can enjoy a warm cup of tea with a selection of biscuits.
After your canal adventure your Private Driver will escort you back to the hotel for the evening.
