Your 2-day tour begins with a morning pickup from Edinburgh city center. Settle into the mini-coach for the journey that takes you past Stirling Castle and the National Wallace Monument on the way to Doune Castle. Make a photo stop at the 13th-century castle, which has appeared in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," "Outlander," and "Game of Thrones."
Continue to the haunting valley of Glen Coe, setting of the infamous massacre of the Clan MacDonald in 1692. After a lunch break (own expense) head for the Glenfinnan Viaduct (April through October only), which starred in the Harry Potter movies and overlooks the site where the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion began.
Make a photo stop at Ben Nevis, Britain's tallest mountain, before winding through the Great Glen to the infamous Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle. Afterward head for your overnight accommodation in Inverness.
Day 2: Rejoin your guide in the morning and travel to Culloden where the Jacobites were finally defeated by British government soldiers in 1746, in the last battle fought on British soil.
Next, visit the Clava Cairns, one of Scotland's most evocative prehistoric sites, before traveling south through Cairngorms National Park.
After lunch (own expense) in one of the park's charming villages inside the national park, visit the town of Pitlochry. You have free time here to explore and the option to visit the Blair Athol Distillery (own expense) where you can take a guided tour and sample the whisky.
You final stop is Dunkeld for a gentle riverside walk. Your tour concludes back at the original departure point.
