Scotland’s Valley of Ghosts Ride
September 28 – October 2

There isn’t a more perfect place than Scotland to surround yourself in the Halloween spirit. Ride along ancient haunted drove roads through the “valley of ghosts” – a valley of ancient burial cairns, some of which can be entered if you dare! You will also pass “Temple Wood” a 5000 year-old stone circle bubbling with mystery and a dark history. Tour Inverary Castle, home of the Duke of Argyll and the ghostly “Harper of Inverary.” The Duke is long gone, but the Harper remains—in the form of a noisy apparition of a victim hanged long ago. You’ll dine in the Castle’s eerie basement kitchen, and enjoy a guided evening tour of the haunted Inverary Jail. We recommend taking a sweater as there are reports of unexplained temperature drops within certain areas of the old prison!

Ride carefully, as the guardian spirits of the trees, the Ghillie Dhu, protect the ancient woodlands you enter as you ride to the ruin of Carnasserie Castle, the 16th century home of Bishop Carswell with high fortified towers and steeped in Scottish legend. Steady your nerves before exploring the ruin – the nooks and crannies are hidey holes for all sorts of ghouls that don’t want to be seen!

Along these trails you’ll even stop for lunch at a deserted bothy at the village of Carron and build a fire. The fire is ideal for warming your lunch, but more importantly it keeps the evil spirits at bay.

A traditional Burns Supper awaits you back at the farm on your last night – complete with a Piper accompaniment and an array of Scottish delights such as Haggis and Ale, and of course a wee dram of whiskey to ease your frightened spirits before heading back home! Click here for a full itinerary!

Cost: $3799 per person. NO SINGLE SUPPLEMENT if you call to book and tell the Reservation Consultant what is a Scottish “wraith” is, and how it differs from J.R.R. Tolkien's wraiths?

Includes: 4 nights hotel accommodation, 3 days guided trail riding, all meals including spooky dinner in Inverary Castle’s “old kitchen” basement and traditional Scottish supper of Haggis, ale and whiskey with a piper accompaniment, guided evening tour of haunted Inverary jail, tour of Inverary Castle, horse, tack, luggage transfer, transfers to/from Glasgow Airport at a preset time and tax.
