Delve deep into the delights of Scotland on this two day tour from Edinburgh. Discover spectacular mountains, rivers and lochs as you immerse yourself in the legendary history of the Highlands.
Loch Ness & the Scottish Highlands: 2 Day Tour Itinerary
On the morning of your tour, you'll be picked up from the meeting point in the heart of Edinburgh ready for your two-day adventure into the Scottish Highlands. The first stop on your tour will be Luss, a picturesque conservation village on the banks of Loch Lomond.
Your route will take you further north, alongside the banks of the famous loch and through the rugged countryside of Scotland. Admire the dramatic scenery of Rannoch Moor and the beautiful Black Mount mountain range, before reaching Glencoe. Here, you'll make a stop to stroll around this mythical place, where in 1692 the Clan Macdonald Massacre took place.
Back on the road, you'll head up to Fort William, a historic town in the shadow of Ben Nevis, Britain's tallest mountain. After enjoying lunch in the town, your route will take you around the shoreline of the iconic Loch Ness. From your luxury coach you'll see the Medieval ruins of Urquhart Castle... we can't guarantee you'll see any monsters though! Concluding the first day of your Scottish Highlands tour, you'll arrive in the city of Inverness in the early evening, where you'll spend the night in a hotel.
On the second day of your tour, you'll have the opportunity to tailor your itinerary to suit your interests. You might choose to visit Culloden Battlefield to discover the history of the Jacobite uprisings and Bonnie Prince Charlie; explore the fascinating ancient stones of the Neolithic Clava Cairns; or indulge in a whisky tasting at Dalwhinnie Distillery.
After lunch, you'll be taken south to Ruthven Barracks, a historic military settlement, and The Hermitage, where you'll enjoy a tranquil walk in the beautiful Scottish woodlands (summer months only), before you cross back over the Forth Bridge to Edinburgh, arriving around 7:30 pm.
