For regal exploration...

London is very well known for its connection to the Royal Family—however, plenty of other places where The Royal Family has significant ties. Discover the Royal Family's residences and immerse yourself in the royal history across Scotland. From the grand palace of Holyrood in Edinburgh to royal holiday destinations in the Hebrides, our Royal Discovery Pass highlights some of the best spots in Britain with a connection to the family.

Where to start...

We recommend that you start your journey from Edinburgh. Start your journey by flying with Loganair to Edinburgh from:

  • Isle of Man
  • England - Exeter, Southampton, Newquay
  • Wales - Cardiff
  • Norway - Bergen, Stavanger


Just to remind you, you must select at least five Loganair flights on your journey; there is no restriction on how many flights you can choose to build your itinerary.


Day 1


Fly to Edinburgh to explore several royal residences.

Right at the head of the Royal Mile, you'll find Edinburgh Castle and, at its foot, the Palace of Holyroodhouse – the King's official residence in Scotland. Explore magnificent historic and State Apartments, the romantic ruins of the 12th-century Holyrood Abbey, and the remarkable royal gardens. The Palace is best known as the home of Mary, Queen of Scots, as it was a setting for many dramatic episodes in her short reign. Another spectacular place to visit is Linlithgow Palace, which is just 45 minutes away from Edinburgh. This has been a royal residence since at least the reign of David I (1124-53), and it was also a stop for royals going between Edinburgh Castle and Stirling Castle.

Day 3


Hop on a flight to Stornoway, in the Isle of Lewis.

The Hebrides have long been a favourite holiday destination for the royal family, with frequent visits from Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Edinburgh and Diana, Princess of Wales. And we can see why with its myriad fishing boats and yachts, quaint croft houses, and fine white sand beaches (which make for the perfect serene setting)! And whilst in Stornoway, you might want to treat yourself to a wee dram and enjoy the generous portions of fresh seafood and homemade cake at the many cafes and restaurants dotted around the town.

Day 5


Next, fly to Inverness in the Highlands, where the Battle of Culloden, which has ties to previous royal dynasties, took place.

Visit Culloden Battlefield, where the 1745 Jacobite Rising came to a tragic end. Discover the true story from the Jacobite and Government perspectives in the accredited museum, where weapons and unique artefacts are displayed, and enjoy panoramic views from the roof garden. We also recommend visiting Balmoral Castle, the Scottish home of the Royal Family, in the heart of Cairngorms National Park. Considering it's a slightly longer journey, why not make a day trip? There are various lochs and rivers, spectacular vistas and ancient forests to explore around the park.

Head back on a Loganair flight to Stornoway before returning to Edinburgh and completing your journey.
