Jack’s Scotland/Ireland tour

The tour takes place during the last two weeks of June each year, finishing in time for folk to be home for the Fourth of July celebrations.

We now run two different tours, year about –

This tour runs on odd numbered years – the next one is in 2017. The itinerary commences with everyone being picked up at Edinburgh airport. Places visited include Roslin Chapel, Moffat, The Antrim Glens/Giant’s Causeway, Ulster folk and transport museum, The Burns Experience in Alloway, Loch Lomond, Glencoe, Mull and Iona, Culloden, The Perthshire Highlands, Edinburgh and Fife (including St. Andrews). At the tour’s conclusion, you get tucked into the airport hotel on the evening before departure.

This tour runs on even numbered years – the next one is in 2018. The itinerary also starts at Edinburgh airport. Places visited include Loch Lomond, Glencoe, Skye, Lewis and Harris (including the Callanish Stones), the North coast, Viking and Neolithic sites on Orkney, then to Inverness, Morayshire (including Culloden) and Aberdeenshire, Fife (including St. Andrews). Once again you are booked into the airport hotel before departure the next day.

Along the way we are entertained by excellent traditional singers and musicians from among Jack’s musical connections through the years.

The cost includes: dinners; bed and breakfast in first class mostly traditional hotels (except for one night in a good hostel in Ireland); travel in a comfortable seventeen seat bus; and visits to local attractions.

For more details on timing and cost, and a link to the booking form visit http://www.scottishsongandstory.co.uk/whitespringsfolkclub.htm – don’t worry about the page title; just cut and paste. We never got round to changing it, but it really is about the tour!

  1. Thanks for visiting with us in Nellysford today. What a treat to learn how all the pieces of your two lives came together to take you to Big Stone Gap and the work you do there.

    I am interested in Jack’s Scotland tours – 2014. I followed the website given above, but I get an error message and can’t go to the registration form.

    I am interested in receiving more information about the tour.

  2. Jack’s Ireland/Scotland tours – please send me the details of the 2014 tour.

    • Hi Janie – I’ve had a last minute cancellation for this year’s tour. It would mean sharing a room with a very nice and interesting lady who works for the American Red Cross and you’d have to leave for Scotland this coming Saturday arriving in Edinburgh airport Sunday morning. Interested?
