Newmarket Holidays opens up the very best of Scotland

A visit to the Newmarket Holidays website demonstrates that this company offers a very wide range of holidays. For instance, Newmarket Holidays not only offers its customers the possibility of exploring such far-flung locations as China and Australia but also offers a range of holidays right here in the United Kingdom. Newmarket Holidays has been in existence since 1983. Over the last three decades the company has built up a reputation for excellent service and very good value. A very good indicator of this rests in the fact that Newmarket Holidays has been a recipient of an accolade from the prestigious British Travel Awards not once, but three times in as many years. The most recent prize came in 2013 when Newmarket Holidays picked up the award for Best Escorted Tours Holiday Company.

Newmarket HolidaysScotland is right on our doorstep and has a lot to offer as a holiday destination.

One such example of this is the Newmarket Holidays 6-day air holiday entitled Best of Scotland’s Lochs and Highlands. Departing in May and October, this holiday provides Newmarket Holidays customers with the opportunity to sample the very best of the Scottish countryside. The price of this holiday is extremely reasonable (especially when taking into account everything that Newmarket Holidays has packed into the holiday). As with all such holidays, the company also provides comprehensive guidance and assistance from a professional Newmarket Holidays Tour Manager to ensure customers get the most of their experience.

Newmarket Holidays customers fly to Edinburgh before being taken to the attractive Highland town of Pitlochry. The holiday includes a trip to Loch Ness where Newmarket Holidays lays on a trip on the Royal Scot to get a glimpse of what lurks underwater – thanks to Sonar equipment. Subsequent highlights of the holiday include a relaxing ride on the Nevis Gondola – Britain’s only mountain gondola. Newmarket Holidays also offers its customers the opportunity of visiting Inverary Castle, which made a guest appearance on a recent Downton Abbey Christmas special as ‘Duneagle Castle’. Towards the end of this fascinating break from Newmarket Holidays, customers get to spend time in Oban; known as the gateway to the Isles and featuring its very own whisky distillery and woolen mills.
