Day 1 : Scotland Arrival
Welcome to Scotland!
When you touchdown in Scotland on day one, arrangements for your pickup will have been already made; all you will have to do is hop on for a scenic ride to the quaint town of Port Patrick, where the estate is located.
Stunning scenery – An experience you’ll never forget!
The journey to the estate is an experience on its own. You’ll be welcomed to Scotland by its landmark rugged coastlines, and flowing grassy fields dotted with sheep and lamb, as your driver enlightens you about the stories of the many historic places as you pass them by. When you reach the estate, our host will be present to welcome you and show you to your rooms.
Depending on the time it takes for you to reach the estate and get settled in, you will have the remainder of the day to explore the grandeur of this beautiful place you will be calling home for the next 9 days.
Experience Scottish Hospitality at its finest
Not only will you be greeted by gracious hosts, but you will also be offered hors d’oeuvres upon your arrival, as well as granted access to a cash bar where you can have your first taste of scotch.
When everyone has made it to the estate, we will begin a quick tour of the communal rooms on the estate with the estate’s owner, also referred to as the laird. The tour will be followed up by a breathtaking performance by the renowned Stranraer Scottish pipe band; a 17-person band that is the holder of many championships in Scotland. Once you have had the opportunity to hear them play, you will know exactly why the band is so revered and celebrated. The end of your first day will be marked by a delicious dinner prepared for you by a Michelin starred chef in one of the estate’s grand dining halls.
