Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy free entry to 77 of Scotland's top attractions with the Historic Scotland Explorer Pass – a flexible sightseeing pass that allows you to visit the sites that interest you most. Make the most of advanced ticket entry to Scottish showstoppers such as Edinburgh Castle and Stirling Castle, and visit lesser-known treasures including Fort George. Choose from a 3-day or 7-day pass and sightsee as you wish; both include a saving of 20 percent on an audio tour at Edinburgh or Stirling Castle as well as an information pack and souvenir passport.
Choose from two different passes to suit your schedule, and enjoy the flexibility to visit the Scottish heritage attractions that you want, at a time that suits you best. Select the 3-day pass to be used on any three days in a period of five consecutive days from first use, or the 7-day pass to be used on any 7 days in a period of 14 consecutive days from first use. When you redeem your voucher for your Historic Scotland Explorer Pass, you’ll also receive a pack showing the locations of the sites with a souvenir ‘passport’ book; simply ask each site to stamp the book on admission for a memento of your time in Scotland. Both passes include entry to a staggering 77 attractions all around Scotland, from the Orkney Islands in the north to Dumfries and Galloway in the south. Learn about ancient Scottish clans at sites like Skara Brae Prehistoric Village, and discover majestic fortifications and towering turrets at some of Scotland’s finest castles. Scotland’s two top dogs – Edinburgh Castle and Stirling Castle – are both included in the pass, along with lesser-known treasures such as Duff House and Fort George. A selection of the top attractions that are included with each pass is detailed below, but a full list of all the included attractions is detailed on your booking voucher.
