Heading north from Edinburgh we pass the imposing ramparts of Stirling Castle, skirt the Trossachs (Rob Roy country) before crossing the wilds of Rannoch Moor and onto dramatic Glencoe, site of the massacre of the McDonald clan in 1692.
Our tour takes us past Fort William and Britain's highest mountain, the mighty Ben Nevis before following the Great Glen and stopping in the village of Fort Augustus by the shores of mysterious Loch Ness.
You have the option to take a boat trip and hunt for Nessie, explore the shores of the loch or simply relax and enjoy your free locally produced picnic lunch. (A typical lunch includes a bottle of Scottish mineral water, a choice of freshly made sandwiches and shortbread).
Our return journey passes south along Loch Laggan stopping at one of the quaint Highland villages along the way. After one last sight of the spectacular Forth Bridges we arrive back in the capital around 8pm.
Loch Ness Cruise option*
A cruise on Loch Ness is an unforgettable experience, where you might just catch a glimpse of Nessie. We use locally owned custom built boats, designed with sonar and underwater imaging systems, giving you a fascinating view of the terrain and life underwater. You can also enjoy the views with a coffee or beer from the onboard bar. The cruise lasts about 1 hour.
Purchase your discounted 'fast track' ticket at time of booking your tour and you'll be able to board the boat immediately on arrival in the village without having to queue.
(*subject to availability during winter months).
Please note Loch Ness is a long drive from Edinburgh but well worth it! Not only do you get a great experience of Scotland's most famous loch but we travel in style on our bespoke midi-coaches which have been custom built for your comfort. There are stops along the way to stretch the legs and take in some quality Highland air.
This trip is operated by our sister company Highland Explorer Tours.
