New Tours in Scotland Showcase Golf and History

Golfers and fans of the game will want to check out Collette Vacations' Discover Scotland program for 2011, which has just gone on sale.

With the 139th Open Championship getting ready to kick off this weekend, travelers will be looking to travel to St. Andrews, where the game of golf was (arguably) created.  Collette’s Discover Scotland tour visits St. Andrews, where visitors can see the Royal and Ancient Clubhouse and the famous Old Course, host of this year’s tournament.

In addition to St. Andrews, visitors can also tour Edinburgh Castle, the excavated village of Skara Brae, located on the remote Orkney Islands, Gill’s Bay, and the Isle of Skye.

Nice deal: Collette is offering travel agents the chance to book this 2011 tour at 2010 prices. Pricing for the 10-day Discover Scotland tour is less than $3,000 per person—land and air. And with last minute offers from Collette’s airline partners, when travelers buy one roundtrip airfare, a companion flies for $199 on select departure dates. Booking must be made by August 30.
