Day 1

You will depart Edinburgh and head north across the Firth of Forth towards the Highlands. A short stop in Dunkeld is followed by a walk along the River Tay or perhaps at the nearby Hermitage, before you head for the holiday town of Pitlochry for lunch.  If you take a quick lunch then there will also be the option to visit the local whisky distillery - the smallest in Scotland. From here the tour now takes you past Blair Castle into the Cairngorm National Park, where you will spend some time taking in the majesty of this amazing area, deep within the ancient Caledonian Pine Forests of the Rothiemurchus Estate. You then continue north and arrive at Inverness, where you will be dropped off at your accommodation. The evening is free for you to explore the capital of the Highlands.

Day 2

After a leisurely breakfast you will be picked up from your accommodation in Inverness and explore the surrounding countryside en route to Loch Ness. Here you have the chance to either take a boat trip along the loch with great views of Urquhart Castle or stay on shore and visit the impressive ruins of the castle overlooking the loch. You will spend your lunchtime on the southern shore of the loch in the charming village of Fort Augustus.

The Caledonian Canal, which links the lochs of the Great Glen, dominates the town and makes a great place to relax and watch the boats sail by. You now continue south past Ben Nevis and Fort William to Glencoe. This haunting glen was the scene of a terrible massacre in 1692, where many of the Clan Macdonald were slaughtered. The return journey continues over the wild and remote Rannoch Moor and into the countryside around Stirling, before finally reaching our starting and ending point of Edinburgh.

Arrive approx. 19.00.

Some Places We Will Visit

  • Callander

    The small Trossachs town of Callander lies right on the main tourist trail from Stirling through to the west Highlands. The town became famous during the 'Scottish Enlightenment' of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries with the gleaming reports given by poets Sir William Wordsworth and Sir Walter Scott and developments came to a full swing with Queen Victoria choosing to visit Callander and with the arrival of the train line in the 1860s.

  • Inverness

    The Highlands' largest town and enjoying a real renaissance over the past ten years as young professionals have moved to the city. The gateway to the far north and a fun night out if you stay.

  • Loch Ness

    Loch Ness is world famous for the wrong reasons: the mythical watery monster than has been subject to repeated scientific investigations without success. Its fame ignores the real attractions of this huge lake framed by mountains and castles that cuts the highlands in two. 

  • Drumnadrochit

    Drumnadrochit a small village on the shores of Loch Ness is famous for the Loch Ness Monster. It lies on the northern part of Loch Ness and 14 miles from Inverness. Drumnadrochit is a pretty village it is also known as ‘Drum’ by the locals. The major Visitor Attraction here is The 5 Star Loch Ness Exhibition Centre (Formerly Loch Ness 2000).

  • Pitlochry

    Small Highland tour that is a frequent stopping place for coaches travelling along the A9. Somewhat a one road town of shops and cafes.

  • Glencoe

    Dramatic landscape with a dramatic history. Few who visit the glen are unmoved by its majesty and power.

  • Rannoch Moor

    50 square miles of boggy and peaty moorland that separates the southern highland line from the Glencoe Massif. An SSSI and one of Britain's few wild uninhabited places.

  • Fort Augustus

    At the more scenic southern end of Loch Ness stands the village of Fort Augustus, originally set up as a garrison after the Jacobite rebellion of 1715, and headquarters of General Wade's campaign to pacify the Highlands. Today Fort Augustus is a busy little place; full of monster-hunting tourists and boats using the flight of five locks to enter or leave Loch Ness on their journey along the Caledonian Canal.

Castle Visited

  • Urquhart Castle

    Semi ruinous castle in strong position beside Loch Ness controlling the route North. Captured by Robert the Bruce by clever negotiation. Visitor centre open all year.
