Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
The scenery on this trip is phenomenal and the history is gripping. It all makes for an unforgettable day – especially if you spot the Loch Ness Monster!
What You Can Expect
Make your way through Britain’s highest mountain range in Cairngorms National Park, taking in sensational panoramas at every turn. Then, arrive at Loch Ness, where you will have time to have lunch at a nearby restaurant or enjoy a picnic (own expense).
If weather conditions permit, hop on a boat with your guide and enjoy a cruise (own expense) around this world-famous lake. Keep your eyes peeled for the legendary Loch Ness Monster, a dinosaur-like creature who some believe lurks deep beneath these waters. Have your camera ready – even if you don’t spot ‘Nessie,’ the atmospheric Loch Ness area is beautiful.
Continue your drive to Glen Coe, a lushly rugged glen formed by an ice age glacier. Learn how this breathtaking place was the site of a terrible massacre in 1692 that took the lives of scores of members of the MacDonald clan.
On the way back to Edinburgh, pass through Stirling, an ancient Scottish city known as the ‘Gateway to the Highlands.’ Admire the town’s magnificent cliffside castle as you hear tales of William Wallace, a medieval Scottish war hero who was immortalized in the Oscar-winning film Braveheart. Your tour concludes in central Edinburgh.
A long long day with most spent in the van but an excellent experience. Fantastic history stories from Ken our tour guide who comes across as a mean old buggar but he's really a big softy and a pushover who makes the day amazing. Windosr Castle is very busy in the summer so probably would not do that again but Glencoe was out of this world when it came to beauty and Lochness was very enjoyable. Well worth the money I would say with extra stops thrown in by Ken.
Fantastic experience - brilliant guide. Comfortable sized group and bus - not to small for such a long journey. Only tour company offering this route - felt very personal as this company does not follow ALL the other tour companies to Loch Ness. Great value for the length of entertainment you get. 100% recommend this company for comfortable midi-coach (appropriate for the tour) excellent guide, unique route and the ticket price.
