Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Scottish Highlands Day Trip from Edinburgh with Audio Guide

See Highland cattle as you travel!

Your full-day tour through the Scottish Highlands departs in the morning from Edinburgh's Royal Mile. Meet your expert guide and settle in for the northbound ride toward Stirling. Pass this historic city – site of the famous Stirling Castle – en route to Glencoe, a glen of breathtaking beauty that boasts high mountain peaks, ridges, bubbling rivers and waterfalls. Disembark here to take a leisurely walk, equipped with your audio guide, and learn about the infamous MacDonald clan that resided here and suffered in the brutal massacre of 1692.


Your trip continues along the banks of Loch Linnhe and past Ben Nevis – the highest peak in the British Isles – located at the western end of the Grampian Mountains. Then travel to the Great Glen and down to the mythical Loch Ness, where you’ll have free time to explore the lakeside with your trusty audio guide and grab lunch (own expense). Purchase an optional cruise on the loch for some tranquil sightseeing and a cheeky search for the famed water monster, Nessie. 


Your final stop is the Highlands' capital of Inverness. Learn the town’s colorful history and see landmark sites like the River Ness, Inverness castle and St Andrew’s Cathedral. From here, make your way back to Edinburgh, winding through Perthshire and Cairngorms National Park for lovely views of peaks, waterfalls and craggy ravines. You’ll arrive back at the starting point in the evening.
