Join the Celtic Invasion of the Highlands of ScotlandI still have space on my Celtic Invasion of the Highlands. We’re gonna visit the beautiful Kinross Estate and Gardens built by William Bruce in 1560. We’ll see some standing stones and visit Cawdor Castle as the sun sets outside of Inverness. We’ll steam train around Cairngorn National Park. And end up with some fun in Stirling. Celtic Invasion Vacations are unlike any other vacation package you will find online. Instead of traveling with 30-60 people getting on and off buses all day long, you will join a maximum of 15 people in cars, stopping to meet your needs. It’s like a bunch of good friends traveling Scotland together. Good food, good drink and good company. Join me this June in Scotland as we invade the Highlands. Go to for more details.
