Next, we’ll journey to Ballachulish. On the way, we will enjoy a cruise on Loch Ness, one of Britain’s most scenic bodies of water, and we’ll keep a lookout for “Nessie”! We will visit the ruins of Urquhart Castle then travel through the Great Glen, famous for its many lochs (lakes). We travel over the Skye Bridge to the legendary Isle of Skye.

After checking into “The Martha”, we’ll enjoy Afternoon Tea and have time to explore the historic hotel and grounds. We’ll have a special dinner at The Tavern, the oldest historic building in Abingdon. Built in 1779, it was used from its beginning as a tavern and overnight inn for stagecoach travelers. It is now an elegant upscale restaurant serving American and German cuisine in a cozy, warm atmosphere with period décor. The next morning, after breakfast at the hotel, we will board our coach for a half-day driving tour of historic Abingdon. Our step-on guide will be “The Salt Maker”, Jim Bordwine. He will bring to life the history of the Appalachia Mountain people and the role this region has had in the Ice Age, Revolutionary War, Civil War and some of history’s greatest moments including rocket fuel and moonshine! Jim Bordwine has a history of his own, his appearances on “Mountain Men” (History Channel) and his work to keep and share “real” history will add to your experience as you visit the sites where history was made and been kept. We’ll have free time for lunch on our own and perusing the shops in downtown Abingdon. Or, you may choose to return to the hotel for enjoying the “Spa” activities during the afternoon. At 5:30, we’ll dine at The Martha, then walk across the street for a performance of “The Producers” at The Barter Theatre. The next morning, after a relaxing breakfast, we’ll check out of the hotel and head to the Abingdon Vineyards and Winery, located in a picturesque idyllic setting at the confluence of a small brook and river.
