Full Description

Enjoy a bird's eye view on board a luxury helicopter and see for miles around; a truly spectacular way to view Scotland from above!

Hop aboard this flight to enjoy some of Scotland's famous landmarks, travelling at 2000 foot you'll see for miles around.  Departing from the helipad, you'll fly towards Edinburgh city where you will see Edinburgh Castle, down the Royal Mile to Holyrood Palace and over to the Crags and Arthurs Seat.  See the regimented streets and crescents of the New Town and compare these to the winding streets in the Old Town! Flying over Edinburgh's Shore area you'll spot the Royal Yacht Britannia, that's moored in the harbour.

Heading west along the coastline, you'll see spectacular views of the Victorian engineering phenomenon, the Forth Rail Bridge, opened in 1890 which still to this day, dominates the skyline.  Beside it you'll see the 1964 Forth Road Bridge, built to carry traffic from Edinburgh to the Kingdom of Fife, and you'll get the chance to spot the Queensferry Crossing as it's construction is well underway, with the completion due in 2017.

You'll also see the stunning 1701 Hopetoun House, set in 6500 acres of grounds including walled gardens and a large pond to the front, the best way to see this beautiful estate, is by air.
