Announcing our 30th Wonders of the World Tour to…

SCOTLAND

Why We LOVE Scotland

I’m so excited for this adventure to Scotland because it will be my first time traveling there! I’ve traveled all over the world, and I’ve always heard amazing things about Scotland… it’s been on my bucket list for a long time. We’ll spend 9 wonderful days together, exploring the countryside, staying in exquisite locations, and jamming together on the nature of life, dreams, and happiness. Check out the places we’ll go, below! This will be a truly unforgettable adventure we’ll remember for the rest of our lives – the beginning of new friendships, new discoveries, and new possibilities that exceed our wildest expectations.

 

Oh, The Places We’ll Go

Here's some of what we have to look forward to together over the course of this great adventure.

Culloden Moor

Experience the powerful emotions of the Battle of Culloden, as we explore the battlefield where the 1745 Jacobite Rising came to a tragic end, and visit the memorial of 1,500 fallen soldiers.

Loch Ness

Experience stunning views during a cruise through the most famous Loch in Scotland, best known for alleged sightings of the cryptozoological Loch Ness Monster, Nessie.

Isle of Mull (and Iona)

Take a ferry to the Isle of Mull, breathtakingly beautiful with its sandy beaches, colorful harbors, and quirky shops; followed by a pilgrimage to the small but stunning Isle of Iona.

Rosslyn Chapel

Visit Rosslyn Chapel, a 15th century chapel known for its countless mysteries, myths, and legends (which provided the inspiration for Dan Brown’s novel, The Da Vinci Code).

St. Oran’s Chapel

Explore St. Oran’s Chapel, built in the 12th century, and Reilig Òdhrain (the graveyard where 48 ancient kings of Scotland, including Macbeth, are said to be buried).

Edinburgh Castle

Visit Edinburgh Castle, a world famous icon of Scotland that was once the residence of Scottish monarchs and was recently voted a top UK Heritage Attraction.

Adventure with Like-Minded Thinkers

Something magical happens when like-minded thinkers embark on these WOW TOURS together. Everyone is fully versed in spiritual thinking, personal responsibility, and creating our own realities. Dreams and challenges are shared, illumination is sparked and lives are changed.

Connect One-On-One with Mike

On every trip we take, Mike is a part of the adventure in every way that you are. Whether we’re climbing a mountain, riding a bus, eating at a local restaurant, or passing out school supplies to children, Mike is a part of the action! He’s always accessible and available to talk with participants.

Participate in Daily Workshops

One of the highlights of our adventures are the daily workshops with Mike and Andy. During these casual, unplugged workshops, Mike will share material from his Your Wish Is the Universe’s Command World Tour and Andy will share material from his Smart Manifesting Workshop. There will be plenty of time for group discussion and Q&A.

Give Back to the Places We Visit

It’s been our tradition on each trip to give back to the people who call the places we visit, “Home.” We do this in a numbers of ways, including visiting orphanages, schools, reservations, or refuges—bringing with us supplies they may need, donations, and short “Mike Dooley Pep Talks.”

Adventure Schedule

DAY 1: TUESDAY, September 22, 2020

Overnight Flight

Join your fellow TUT Adventurers in New York for the overnight flight to Amsterdam, and then to Inverness Scotland.

DAY 2: WEDNESDAY, September 23, 2020

Set off to Scotland

Upon arrival at the Inverness airport we’re greeted with welcoming smiles and a quick lunch to perk us up before our transfer to Achnagairn Estate, an exclusive five-star manor located in the outskirts of Inverness. Along the way, we will stop at Cawdor Castle for a guided tour of its well-preserved rooms and immaculate gardens that have been fictitiously immortalized by Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

We arrive at the picturesque and tranquil grounds of our private manor after lunch. We’ll take in the beauty of the grounds, then we gather for our first TUT Talk. Afterwards, an informal group dinner gives us the opportunity to relax and get to know each other.

Accommodations: Achnagairn Estate (Lunch and Dinner)

DAY 3: THURSDAY, September 24, 2020

Culloden

Enjoy a traditional Scottish breakfast before joining us for a TUT Talk this morning.

After our TUT Talk, we will experience the powerful emotions of the Battle of Culloden. A Jacobean guide will first lead our group around the key areas of action on Culloden Moor, moving along to the restored 18th-century Leanach Cottage, then to the memorial of 1,500 fallen Jacobite soldiers. We then continue our walk through Scotland’s ancient history at Clava Cairns, the site of a medieval chapel and cemetery that remains a sacred place from the Bronze Age.

On our way back to Achnagairn Estate we will stop for lunch at Cawdor Tavern, a cozy spot that was once a joiner’s workshop for the nearby estate. The rest of the afternoon will be free for you to take a stroll through the manor’s formal gardens or relax with a book in one of the lounges. See you later on tonight at our final dinner in our country estate.

Accommodations: Achnagairn Estate (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner)

DAY 4: FRIDAY, September 25, 2020

Loch Ness

Enjoy a traditional Scottish breakfast before joining us for a TUT Talk this morning.

In the morning, we pack our bags and transfer to Clansman Harbor for a cruise over the Loch. Gaze out upon moody views of the most famous Loch in Scotland and hillsides that fuel your imagination with captivating tales of the legend of Loch Ness. Be on the lookout for the elusive monster herself! After exploring the depths of the water, we will de-board the boat at Urquhart Castle where we will roam the ruins of the premises. Along the way, we’ll learn about the centuries of conflict that took place on these grounds, including the numerous raids that eventually led to its destruction. Feel free to climb to the top of the tower to scope the Loch one last time for Nessie before we make our way to Fort Augustus.

This scenic village offers a quintessential shore-side landscape for us to marvel at the locks of the Caledonian Canal and walk around for a bit, prior to stopping for lunch. Our journey from Inverness to Glencoe continues along the Highland route to Glencoe National Reserve where we immerse ourselves in the dramatic mountains, natural wildlife, rare beauty and haunting history.

The afternoon carries us to our final destination of the day – at the laid back, simple and comfortable, Isles of Glencoe Hotel, which is exclusively reserved for our group! The loch-side setting is a perfect respite before sitting down to dinner in the hotel’s dining room.

The Isles of Glencoe Hotel (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner)

DAY 5: SATURDAY, September 26, 2020

Mull & Iona

Grab coffee or tea in the dining room over stunning views of the Loch before heading out on a full day adventure.

We will drive to the coast and the town of Oban where we’ll take a short ferry ride crossing the sound to the Isle of Mull. As we drive along Mull's stunning landscape and spectacular coastline, we will learn about the geological wonders, abundant wildlife and history of the area. From Fionnphort a small passenger ferry guides us over the coastal waters to the tiny sacred island of Iona.

Our pilgrimage to Iona begins with St. Columba, a prince from an Irish noble family. In his youth, Columba became a priest and a missionary monk, founding a number of monastic houses in Ireland before a tribal feud forced him into exile, and he proceeded to establish a monastery here on Iona. While we are here, we will admire illuminated manuscripts and intricately carved stone crosses at the Abbey Church, stand on Torr an Aba (the little hill above where St. Columba is thought to have had his writing hut), explore St. Oran’s Chapel and visit Reilig Òdhrain (the graveyard where 48 ancient kings of Scotland, including Macbeth, are said to be buried). Before heading back, we will take a moment to bask in the panoramic views of St. Columba’s Bay.

Such a busy day calls for a relaxing dinner with uninterrupted views over Loch Leven. Sit back, take it all in and enjoy some down home traditional cooking at The Isles of Glencoe Hotel.

Accommodations: The Isles of Glencoe Hotel (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner)

DAY 6: SUNDAY, September 27, 2020

Edinburgh

We gather for breakfast and a TUT Talk before we take our bags and head to Edinburgh. Our colorful drive takes us out of the hills and back to the coast. We’ll stop for lunch along the way before arriving in Edinburgh and checking into the smart and snappy Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel.

In the evening, we are treated to a private visit of Rosslyn Chapel. The mysteries and energy of this chapel provided the inspiration for Dan Brown’s novel The Da Vinci Code. Our expert guides will bring all of the questions to light, and point out the special and unique aspects of this chapel that are not immediately noticed. After our time in the Chapel, we’ll enjoy a light dinner and then head back to the Kimpton Hotel.

Accommodations: The Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner)

DAY 7: MONDAY, September 28, 2020

Edinburgh

We will venture to the summit of Castle Rock and visit Edinburgh Castle where stories fill every nook and cranny of this Scottish icon. Hear its extraordinary history come alive as we walk through the royal precincts of Queen Mary’s chambers, the Great Hall, the Argyle Tower, the military buildings and St. Margaret’s Chapel. Before taking in the panoramic cityscapes, we will gaze upon the crown jewels which include three objects used during the crowning of every Scottish monarch (the crown, the sword, and the scepter), as well as the Stone of Destiny (the stone upon which the monarchs stood during their coronation).

From the views at spectacular Edinburgh Castle to the shops along Castlehill, our landmark day is not complete without a traditional lunch along the Royal Mile. The rest of the afternoon and evening is free for you to explore the city’s elegant streets, historic lanes and quirky mews.

Once we arrive there will be time in the gardens for a Scottish spectacle of Highland Games and tea before we retire to the castle for a meal fit for a King and Queen.

Where We're Staying

Achnagairn Estate

Achnagairn House is a beautifully restored Mansion; originally built in 1812 the castle boasts a host of unique Scottish architectural details from its two bell-shaped towers to its crow-stepped gables. The history, design, luxury and quintessentially Scottish views combine to create an unforgettable experience.

The house has individually styled bedrooms split over 2 floors in the main house and in the courtyard wing. They have been lovingly restored and designed. However, most of the sleeping rooms are in mini manors, which are on the property and consist of 5-6 bedrooms each, all with a living room, private baths, and kitchen facilities. To relax there are 15 acres of land to walk through including formal gardens and forest areas. At Achnagairn you can escape the ordinary and live like Lord and Lady of the Manor!

The Isles of Glencoe Hotel

The hotel sits along the shores of Loch Leven with spectacular views of the highlands. From the calm waters to the dramatic mountains, the Isle of Glencoe Hotel truly is a place to inspire. This friendly, modern hotel offers spacious comfort with contemporary essentials in a relaxed convivial ambience — it is a simple place, without the trappings of opulence and that’s exactly the way it should be in these surroundings.

Kimpton Charlotte Square

Overlooking one of the city’s prettiest private garden squares, this hotel elevates the best of midcentury style to grand potential and consists of seven interconnected Georgian townhouses. Outside it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and inside the newly renovated interior blends handsome woods, plush fabrics – and, yes, a touch of tartan!

Mike Dooley

aka "The Universe"

Travel, alone, is mind-expanding and invigorating, but when you add to the mix fantastic itineraries, in exotic locales, great conversations, and super-cool people... NOTHING ELSE COMPARES! I’ve been on every one of our WOW Tours, and they’ve quickly become the highlights of my year. And during each trip, I have this feeling, "YES! This is it! Life is so awesome! I HAVE TO SPREAD THE WORD to all our fellow TUTTERS how truly awesome these adventures are!" So needless to say, I’ll be with you throughout the entire trip, at the center of the action, a part of every moment and experience! AND in addition to the adventure aspect, I’ll be delivering casual, unplugged talks about the nature of reality, life, dreams, and happiness.
