Later this evening, take your seat at the spectacular, world-famous Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, one of Scotland's greatest events. (B)

Say goodbye to Scotland and travel to the scenic Lake District, eternalized through the works of Scott and Wordsworth. Along the way, pause at Gretna Green, where runaway lovers would marry in secret. Enjoy a relaxing afternoon on the shores of Lake Windermere, your home for the next 2 nights. Breathe in the crisp air and admire the rolling hills nestled against the water. (B/D) Stay: Low Wood Bay Resort and Spa (2 Nights)

Head to Liverpool, England's popular port city. After some free time to explore, it's your choice! Perhaps you will visit Strawberry Field, the site where John Lennon came to play as a child, which he later immortalized in the song, ‘Strawberry Fields Forever'.
