I have been fortunate enough to spend a great deal of time in Scotland. My ancestors came from Moray in the northeast, so the country has always seemed like my second home. But with or without a family connection, Scotland has an indefinable magic. Because the country means so much to me, I have derived immense pleasure from planning this September's Signature Tour. I wanted you to experience the scenic grandeur of the Western Highlands, to explore some of Scotland's most romantic castles, to visit an old whisky distillery, to play a round of links golf beside the North Sea – the list of attractions is virtually endless. Alas, time can be a limiting factor. So on this occasion, we have constructed three different itineraries, ranging in length from seven to 14 nights. As ever, I have tried to include elements in these tours that are not available to individual travelers. Few countries in the world can offer such cultural depth, combined with such haunting scenic splendor. I do hope that you will take this opportunity to travel with us and to succumb to Scotland's spell.
