Frequent departures throughout the day mean you have total flexibility to plan your day in Edinburgh the way YOU choose!
Sights, attractions and landmarks of this lovely city include the Old Town, Edinburgh Castle and Scottish crown jewels (entry included), the Scott Monument, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, where state ceremonies and official entertaining take place when the Queen is in Scotland, and the Scottish Parliament Building.
Day 2 - Loch Ness and Highlands
Your journey to the Highlands begins with a drive through Rob Roy MacGregor country, Rannoch Moor. Then it's on to Glen Coe, site of the 1692 battle of the MacDonalds and Campbells. Next you'll see Fort William, in the shadow of Ben Nevis, and take a memorable drive through the Great Glen. After a stop at the picturesque village of Fort Augustus, you'll head along the shores of Loch Ness for some monster spotting!
Day 3 - Edinburgh
Enjoy some last-minute shopping in Edinburgh, visit the attractions on your must-see list, stroll through the city center - it's your choice because it's your day!
We had a great time - good value. We opted to go first class on the Train portion which was really nice.
The hotel in Edinburgh not exactly a Scottish guest house was actually much better than we had anticipated for the - it was a European hotel and perfectly located. The amt of time in Scotland was perfect and the Highland Tour was great. This is the only way that we would take a short 3-day exclusion in the future - nice job Viator !! C Taylor / USA .
Absolutely loved it! Beautiful countryside. Our guide Heather was fantastic. She had some great historic stories that she talked about along the way. Very knowledgable and could make a little story seem like you were right there when it happened. Loved her! The trip was well worth it.
So supportive! As a solo traveller, I was met at Kings Cross station where details of the trip were clearly explained to me. The lovely lady then personally escorted me to the train carriage. The train ride was a breeze, The Missoni Hotel was a real treat (though getting there is a little bit of a hike if lugging a suitcase). Kenny the bus driver was a fantastic and informative tour guide on our 11 hour day to the Loch Ness (I didn't mind your singing one bit!). Edinburgh is a beautiful city, rich with stunning architecture, history and culture. And plenty of whisky shops.
Travelling first class on the train is a must for other travellers one is treated like a king as for the hotel one could not better .
the tour guide Andy was well informed on the whole trip and a joy full character on the bus
The hotel was fantastic!
The Haggis Adventures tour to the Highlands and Loch Ness was my favourite part.
Thanks for a great trip!
Great Trip ! ! !
We stayed at the Missoni Hotel right near the castle, close to everything.
I wouldn't recommend coach, pay the extra for first class.
Amazing city cannot wait to go back.
Amazing experience, hotel outstanding and guide (Emma) and driver (Keith) were exceptional.
This tour was great. Edinburgh is a beautiful city and the Scottish Highlands are magnificent. It was also fun taking a ferry ride on Loch Ness, although unfortunately I wasn't able to spot the monster!
