On the shores of Loch Ness and Highlands Experience Tour from Edinburgh
Tour Theme: Small and Medium Group Sightseeing Tours (Multi-days/ 5 to 30 people)
This tour starts from: Edinburgh
Duration: 2 Days / 1 Night
Loch Ness, Inverness and the Highlands
The Highland Experience: two days of fun and adventure that will allow you to immerse yourself in the best that the North of Scotland has to offer. You'll see world-famous lochs and imposing mountains, and, if you're like most of our guests, you'll find yourself falling in love with the Scottish Highlands.
This tour will take you through a landscape rich in history, myth and legend - among the sites you'll see will be Culloden, last stand of the Jacobites against the British government forces. You'll also be able to walk through Glen Coe, where the MacDonalds were massacred, and experience the rugged beauty of Braveheart country. At each stop our guides will be there to bring the history of Scotland alive for you.
You'll be travelling through some of the best scenery in Scotland - from the dizzying heights of the Drumochter Pass to the stunning peaks of the Cairngorms National Park; from the majestic sweep of the Great Glen to the towering heights of Ben Nevis (Britain's highest mountain). As we head toward Inverness there will be ample time to get out and breathe in the Highland air, stretch your legs and try some hearty Highland fare.
The night stop is in Drumnadrochit, a beautiful and welcoming village on the shores of Loch Ness. This means that in the morning, after a delicious Scottish breakfast, you'll be able to really explore this beautiful loch. Why not take a boat tour over to Urquhart Castle* (with the best story-teller on the water), visit the Loch Ness 2000 Exhibition*, or just monster hunt from the shore?
By the end of the tour, whether you've seen Nessie or not, you can be certain that you'll have had a real adventure - and a real Highland Experience. On the way back to Edinburgh we will stop at a whisky distillery in the town of Pitlcochry for a tour and tasting.
