Tour One: The Highland Tour

The Highland Tour, proposed for 2022, was postponed until 2024 due to uncertainty about Covid and it’s effects on the travel industry. The intention is to book the Loch Awe hotel near Dalmally for the period 14th - 21st July 2024; to provide our usual, spectacular, tours and events; and to finish with the Lochearnhead Highland Games and the Banquet on Saturday the 20th.

We hope to keep the price to members in the region of £1250 (GBP) per person for eight days (Sunday to Sunday), with a £50 discount for the few rooms which do not have a view of the Loch. This price includes transport to and from Edinburgh or Glasgow airports, bed & breakfast and evening meal, a formal Society dinner in a Castle, entertainment, all coach tours and most admission fees and fares.

Subject to confirmation, we are planning to visit the Isles of Staffa and Iona; Inveraray Castle; Castle Menzies; Kilmartin Glen; and have a trip on the Jacobite steam train passing over the Glenfinnan viaduct (for Harry Potter fans). - For those of you who attended in 2018, we will also be offering additional visits to alternative locations related to the clan.

A tour like this arranged by a travel agent could cost twice as much. The pick-up and drop-off at the airports is also a super perk, not often offered on tours. It is important to remind ourselves that membership of Clan Gregor has numerous advantages, this certainly being one of the greatest.

However, we do need a minimum of 120 attending to justify this price. Members wishing to take advantage of this amazing experience should notify the Secretary at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. immediately. To guarantee your place you will need to forward payment to the Society of 25% for each person (£300 in Sterling) before the end of February 2023, and the balance is due by the end of 2023.

Overseas members simply have to get themselves to Edinburgh or Glasgow airports and ensure they have adequate travel insurance. Only lunches and personal spending money will be extra.

Members were given the option of a refund of their deposit for 2022 or of keeping it in the tour fund. We are pleased to report that over 90% of members wished their deposits retained.

Tour Two: Edinburgh and the Scott Country

For those of you who would like to extend your stay in Scotland during 2024, Keith and Richard will once again offer our Edinburgh and the Scott country tour, following the Highland Tour, from 28th July - 4th August.

The event will be based in Edinburgh to include touring the Royal Mile, visits to Abbotsford (Sir Walter Scott) and Rosslyn (Da Vinci Code) and will allow for booking of the Royal Edinburgh Tattoo.

Please note that places for this tour are strictly limited. For enquiries about the Edinburgh & Scott Country Tour please contact Keith at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
