You are so lucky! You have to promise to report back here ASAP, LOL. I haven't seen any trip reports so far, and I'm *dying*!

I'll try to post some thoughts during the tour and do a trip report afterwards. We are going to Ireland for a week after Scotland so I won't be able to do a report right away but as soon as we get back I will get it done

Would also love to know what you think of Ireland. We are seriously contemplating an Ireland trip in the next couple of years.

Hi everyone, I'm another Scot so I thought I'd just pop in and say that if anyone has Q's etc I'm more than happy to help. I live on the West Coast of Scotland now, but am originally from the East Coast

Has anyone else received the package yet? I'm looking at our guide and noticed the change of Stirling Castle instead of Edinburgh Castle for certain dates in July and August in the details of the itinerary. Our tour is in June but its still listed as Stirling castle of the itinerary. I was curious if it was just a typo on mine....

Mine says the same thing too. I was excited to see Stirling Castle but I think from the dates listed we will probably have our farewell dinner at Edinburgh Castle.

I'm a little confused by the changes in the itinerary--we are on the August 4th tour. Could you give a little more info about what the guide says?

My preference would be to have the after-hours tour and dinner at Edinburgh Castle, so I hope it's that!

I don't have my scanner nearby to send you an image, but basically on Day 8 it provides the Daily Event and Locations. It lists an After-Hours Private Tour of Stirling Castle With your Adventure Guides and Farewell Dinner at Stirling Castle.

The back of that page that provides more information says "After-Hours Private Tour at Edinburgh Castle" and "Farewell Reception and Dinner at Edinburgh Castle." There is a note on the bottom of the page that says "Due to Edinburgh's annual Military Tattoo event, late July and August departures will enjoy the Farewell Reception and Dinner at Stirling Castle."

Great to know. Thanks for posting. They seemed to get good reviews on TripAdvisor.

Thank you so much for the info--it sounds like our tour will definitely be affected. I guess it makes sense--given the tattoo--but it would have been nice to have a head's up from Disney I've been to both castles so many times, it isn't a big deal to me, but I maybe others will be disappointed?

That is actually fine with me, since my family was debating using some of our pre-trip time to see Stirling. Now we will just stay in Edinburgh and make sure we hit Edinburgh Castle on our own and enjoy the private tour and farewell dinner at Stirling Castle with ABD instead. We also have tickets to the Military Tattoo, so it's all good.
