From the tour profile:
Every second year Geek Nation Tours takes a journey to the United Kingdom. Each time we go we explore another section of the county and for 2014 we are very excited to announce that we will be headed to Scotland. That is right! Home of haggis, kilts, Nessie and of course Scotch Whiskey…
We will see the natural beauty that Scotland is famous for, head to Islay to take in some whiskey distilleries and travel the coastline north to the Highlands…. We will see battlefields and castles and dive into Scottish history… If you ever wanted to take in the real “Braveheart” battlefields, see loads of castles (including one from Highlander and Monty Pythons Holy Grail), or just have a look into how they make scotch taste so good, now is your chance.
Of course this is a gamers AND a whiskey tour and every miniature wargaming Geek's dream is to visit one of the birth places of wargaming. If you are a fan of 40K or Fantasy and want to see many of the wargaming sites in the UK while being surrounded by people of like mind - this is the tour for you. You will meet people that are just as enthusiastic about 40K or Fantasy as you are. Our tour participants agree that while not only do you see super cool places and things while on tour - but you also make friends with great people from around the world.
While this tour is only 3 days longer then 2012’s we really have packed in the sites… Join us as we visit not only historical sites and museums like – Castle Stalker, Eilean Donan Castle, The battlefields of Culloden, Killiecrankie, Stirling and Bannockburn, Edinburgh Castle, the National War Museum of Scotland and the Imperial War Museum North – and natural wonders like Glen Coe, Loc Lomond and of course Loc Ness - but Games Day UK and Warhammer World also. We may even have a drink and a meal at a local pub in Nottingham and maybe even meet a wargame celebrity or two.
Geek Nation Tours will is also looking into providing opportunities for guided Hiking Trips to see the more natural aspects of Scotland’s country-side. More on that as we get closer to our departure.
We would like also announce that we will have several of the crew from the Screaming Heretic Podcast aboard and they will be recording thoughout the tour! Check our friends out at Screaming Heretic!
Oh! And don’t forget we will be visiting Scotch Whiskey Distilleries like Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Caol Ila, Oban, Glenfiddich and Glenlivet for a wee “dram” or two….
