After continuously delivering our bespoke luxury packages throughout Scotland, Lang Atholl Experience has expanded to now offer a full Celtic experience with the inclusion of the Irish isle. As many of our guests travel a long distance to see these beautiful lands it makes perfect sense for us to offer both Gaelic nations; with the same level of luxury which has earned us our numerous five-star reviews.

We are simply expanding our current offering to give you a trusted, luxury name if you decided to visit the Emerald Isle.
