THE CASTLES TRAIL. THE MOST LUXURIOUS TRAIL RIDE IN THE UK.
OVERNIGHT IN LUXURY CASTLES & SPAS
RIDE THROUGH THE BEST SCENERY SCOTLAND HAS TO OFFER
THE CASTLES TRAIL IS LEGENDARY
- Unbelievable scenery
- Excellent en suite accommodation
The CASTLES TRAIL is ideal for anyone who has great riding skills or just moderate riding skills. The pace varies with each tour.
WE ARE SO ACCESSIBLE – You can fly into Glasgow or Edinburgh airports, both are a 40 minute drive from the centre, where we can meet you, or you can make your own way direct to the Scottish Equestrian Centre. Once you arrive everything is included except drinks and pamper treatments in the Hotels with Spas booked on trail holidays.
Trail Rides run for most of the year and each of the seasons has a wonderful variety of flora and colour for the whole of the ride. You’ll be bowled over by the variety of wildlife encountered each day.
We start each week with two nights at our very own Scottish Equestrian Hotel with the first full days’ picnic ride to Lanark Castle and Corra Castle. We picnic just beside the Famous Falls of Clyde and enjoy the beautiful scenery which is right on our doorstep at our Complex. We ride through the World Heritage site, New Lanark Village, which you can visit on foot at the end of your ride. This day is ideal to get you acquainted with your horse and to meet your fellow trail riders. We have great horses so no problem finding one you just love! Dinner will be in the Stables Bistro at our VisitScotland 5 Star Complex and overnight in our VisitScotland 4 star comfortable en suite rooms.
Once we’ve moved into the Trail Ride you will stay at a variety of Inns and Castles, most with Spas so you can ease the aches of a long day in the saddle. We’re heading by way of old tracks and drove roads to the historic town of Selkirk. No roads just amazing country and gorgeous streams and rivers. Your guide will give you a commentary on the history of each area and you’ll love the variety of wildlife on every part of the journey.
Our first night is in the award winning STOBO CASTLE & Spa where you’ll enjoy a gourmet dinner and fine wines. Your luxury room is in the Castle proper. The amazing facilities of this world class spa, with all the pools and treatments, saunas, indoor and outdoor jaccuzzis etc, are all available to you.
All meals and transfers of luggage are included in the package. We transfer your luggage to each location. Drinks on the Trail are paid for by each guest.
We move onto a different castle or hotel each night
Our guests return to the Centre on Friday evening to enjoy a final meal in the Stables Bistro and a good night’s sleep before departing on Saturday morning, after an unforgettable trail riding holiday.
All our staff hold the British Equestrian Tourism Certificates so they fully understand what you’d like from this type of holiday. This is Trail Riding Holidays at their very best.
