What You Can Expect
Pass by Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument and Linlithgow Palace — the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots — en route to Glencoe, a Highland glen filled with eerie tales about the Clan MacDonald massacre of 1692.
Journey onward through the 18th-century Fort William, and gaze out at the Scottish Highlands, including the Great Glen. Reaching Fort Augustus, disembark on the shores of Loch Ness, where you can opt for a seasonal 1-hour boat ride on the loch and listen for the Loch Ness Monster ‘Nessie’ on the sonar system. (Cruises run from Easter to the end of October.)
After you purchase lunch (own expense), continue your drive to Cairngorms National Park via Spean Bridge village. Take in the views of Loch Laggan and the windswept mountains, including Craig Meagaidh, where the TV series Monarch of the Glen was filmed.
Your scenic journey continues over the Drummochter Summit to Pitlochry. After exploring this Victorian town, your tour concludes with the return drive to Edinburgh.
An efficient way to see much of the beautiful Highlands and learn about Scottish history. Our guide was fantastic. Would definitely recommend!
wonderful! Gill was an excellent guide and made the trip very enjoyable. Thanks!
This is an awesome tour! Loved Franny and her storytelling.
A well balanced tour with lots to see. You end up covering 500 kms in a day as you go around the highlands. The guides are funny yet very knowledgeable. You learn a lot of the history of UK during the day. Appropriate stops are scheduled to ensure that we get the best pictures possible
Our tour guide Arron was extremely knowledgeable and super funny - the places covered by the tour well worth a visit!
Richard had a great presentation of the information during the trip, with a pleasant demeanor, knowledge of the area and facts about where we were during the trip. We had a real comfort with his driving skills and felt safe during the entire trip and think it was a good a value. We would highly recommend the tour and Richard to anyone wanting to enjoy the Highlands and towns within that area.
This is a great tour. It is a long day but well worth it. We had an excellent guide Johnny, fantastic scenery and nice stops along the way. The Highlands area a natural treasure and we're truly glad we did this tour.
Excellent trip, Eawan is the perfect giude
Nice tour that involved a lot of driving, with frequent stops to get out and take pictures of the amazing highland scenario. Allie was very knowledgeable and had lots to say about everything. Would strongly recommend.
Beautiful scenery. Highly recommended. Guide Jonathan was excellent and humorous. He is a great story teller. Explained history in a very enjoyable way.
