Day 1

loch lomond2

We leave Glasgow and head west, first stopping at the pretty conservation village of Luss, on the ‘Bonny Bonny Banks’ of Loch Lomond. We descend into the desolate expanse of Rannoch Moor, passing the Black Mount, to dramatic Glencoe, made famous by the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald Clan.


Enjoy a walk here before continuing north towards Fort William and Scotland’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis.

After lunch in the Fort William area, we trace the 24 mile shoreline of Loch Ness, passing Urquhart Castle, then on to Inverness, capital of the Highlands, where we arrive early evening.


Day 2


Enjoy a flexible itinerary today - you may choose to visit the fascinating Culloden Battlefield, where the Jacobites and Bonnie Prince Charlie were defeated by the Duke of Cumberland, and glimpse the ancient stones of the Neolithic Clava Clairns, 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 start our return journey via The Hermitage, stopping for a gentle forest walk, before we cross the Forth Bridges, back to Edinburgh.

Some Places We Will Visit

  • Loch Lomond

    Britain's largest inland waterway, measuring 22 miles long and at certain points up to five miles wide, is Scotland's most famous (uninhabited!) loch, thanks to the Jacobite ballad about its "bonnie banks".


  • Crianlarich

    Crianlarich is a small village in Highland Perthshire region of Scotland. The village's name is believed to derive from the Gaelic word meaning "the low pass", which relates to its geographical location between mountains to both West and East.

  • Fort William

    Fort William is the gateway to the Western Highlands and one of the country's main tourist centres. It stands at the head of Loch Linnhe, with the snow-topped mass of Ben Nevis towering behind.

  • 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. 

  • Culloden

    Guide to Culloden Battlefield to the East of Inverness.

  • Aviemore

    Aviemore was once a sleepy village which was later developed into a ski and tourism resort and has fallen victim to profiteering developers who have scant regard for the local community here. However, Aviemore is great for the services being offered here for visitors.

  • Inverness

    Inverness is the largest town in the Highlands and the busy and prosperous hub of the region. All main routes through the Highlands pass through here at some point, so it's a hard place to avoid. The town's position at the head of the Great Glen and on the shores of the Moray Firth have made it a firm favourite with tourists, who flock here in their legions during the summer months to look for the evasive Loch Ness Monster. Though Inverness has little in the way of major sights, it's a pleasant place to base yourself as you explore the other, more visible attractions on offer in the surrounding area, including the resident population of dolphins in the Moray Firth. The town, though, is not without its own appeal, particularly the leafy banks of the River Ness, which runs through its heart, linking Loch Ness with the Moray Firth.
