The spectacular journey continues through rolling hills, passing spellbinding abbeys, awe inspiring stately homes and castles before arriving at The Treehouses at Lanrick. A hidden gem, offering true escapism within a secluded woodland setting, bordering the Trossachs National Park, this truly green accommodation does not compromise on luxury.

Day Four Heading northeast toward Great Britain’s largest National Park, The Cairngorms, guests will stop for refreshments at the peerless Fife Arms in Braemar, a 200-year-old Scottish lodge.

The journey will then continue on to The Macallan Estate, set in 485 acres of Speyside countryside and home to the brand’s award-winning distillery, designed by internationally acclaimed architects to promote sustainability.

The final destination in the journey celebrates the partnership between Bentley and The Macallan, sharing an insight into the process, production, people, and passion that make their single malt whisky so special. A farewell will culminate in a private, specially curated dining experience at the Elchies Brasserie, followed by a night cap where this memorable evening comes to a close.

Day Five : After a final breakfast, chauffeurs will transfer guests to Aberdeen or Inverness International Airport to travel onwards home. Alternatively, the Caledonian Sleeper from Inverness can be arranged, offering the iconic railway journey to London.
