With dramatic views across the water to Scotland, take in the fortified medieval sites and the local history of attractive Solway coastal towns and villages.

Savour the distant views of the Cumbrian Lake District Fells and Scottish hills on the return journey to the hotel.

Tuesday day 3: The Devil’s Porridge Museum commemorates HM Factory Gretna, the largest munitions factory in the world during the First World War and explores the stories of the Solway Military Coast during the Second World War and beyond.

The castle ruins, as they are now, were once home to an array of treasures from around the globe. With visiting dignitaries including kings, queens, writers and poets, the exhibition in the old stable block tells the story of the family and its 850 year history in vivid detail. This afternoon is a short journey to Glenridding for a relaxing cruise on Lake Ullswater.

Thursday day 5: Our homeward journey takes us as close to Hadrian’s Wall as possible, stopping for coffee in Haydon Bridge. before we head south via Alston to Penrith for lunch and then home to Mid-Wales.

Mystery Weekend Coach Tours from Sabrina Travel

  Just a short note to thank you for a wonderful tour of the Majestic Scottish Highlands. Two words - Magnificent and Dramatic. A big thank you for driving us safely and making the travelling comfortable as well as amusing and interesting. Thank you for acquiring good rooms of our choice in the 3 lovely hotels. It means a lot!  
Mr & Mrs Mills
  We wanted to thank you for a really great holiday to Northumberland. The coach was very comfortable and brilliantly driven. Dave was a great courier, entertaining us on route. The hotel was very good and in a great location. The days out were informative and the countryside beautiful. It was our first trip with you and we hope it will not be the last.  
Jen & Pete
  Just felt we had to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had on the Danube Cruise. We enjoyed it very much, everything was nice and so very well organised.  
  Once again an outstanding tour to the Tattoo - could not fault a thing. The trips out were great with lovely extras!  
Mrs Lawrence
