From Edinburgh we head west to Glasgow, via Stirling, catching a glimpse of its famous and majestic Castle. We visit the Wallace Monument and afterwards pass Doune Castle, location for the film 'Monty Python &The Holy Grail'.
After lunch, time permitting, we make a brief visit to Rob Roy’s grave and then to the pretty village of Killin for photos. We continue our journey north via Tyndrum to the strange, desolate Rannoch Moor, and then move on to Glencoe, scene of the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald clan, to enjoy a brief walk and photos. Our final stop is the Highland town of Fort William, where we check into our accommodation.
After breakfast we head north into the Great Glen, a geographical fault line characterised by a chain of impressive lochs, including Loch Ness. We enjoy a photo stop at Glen Garry, before arriving at Eilean Donan Castle (interior closed in winter) for an optional visit, or to explore the castle and its beautiful setting. Our journey continues with a stop for lunch and views of Loch Ness in the pretty loch-side village of Fort Augustus.
After lunch we start our descent to Edinburgh, enjoying a photo stop to admire Ben Nevis, Scotland’s highest mountain, at 1,343 metres. Then we travel via The Hermitage, stopping for a gentle forest walk, before crossing the Forth Bridge, back to Edinburgh.
