Day 1

From Edinburgh we head west to pick up our Glasgow passengers* , first stopping at the pretty conservation village of Luss, on the ‘Bonny Bonny Banks’ of Loch Lomond. We descend into the dramatic expanse of Rannoch Moor, passing the Black Mount, to dramatic Glencoe, site of the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald Clan.  Here we pause for a leisurely walk to soak in the atmosphere of this haunting glen, before continuing north towards Fort William and Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis.

After lunch in the Fort William area, your two day tour from Edinburgh traces the 24 mile shoreline of Loch Ness, passing Urquhart Castle, then on to Inverness, capital of the Highlands, where we arrive early evening. Overnight stay in Inverness.

Day 2

Enjoy a flexible itinerary today - you may choose to visit the fascinating Culloden Battlefield, where Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites were defeated by the Duke of Cumberland, and glimpse the ancient stones of the Neolithic Clava Cairns, before the opportunity for a visit and whisky tasting at Tomatin Distillery.

After a lunch stop in the ski resort area of Aviemore we move south for a visit to the old military garrison of Ruthven Barracks, built by General Wade. We continue our return journey via The Hermitage, stopping for a gentle forest walk in idyllic Scottish woodland, before we cross the Forth Bridges, back to Edinburgh.
