    The Jacobite 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 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. The first days ends at Drumnadrochit, a beautiful and welcoming village on the shores of Loch Ness.
