We travel through the highlands to reach the famous Loch Ness, with plenty of time to go monster hunting. This tour can be tailor made to your preferences, below is an example itinerary with options…

    Day 1: Departing Edinburgh we first travel through the central belt passing by the mighty Stirling Castle. Sitting in the centre of Scotland it has seen some of the country’s most important historical events. Crossing over the Spittal Bridge we have great views of Doune Castle; famously used in films and TV such as Monty Python and Outlander. Coffee stop at Kilmahog Woolen Mill or Deanston Distillery Bothy.

    Private Overnight Tour to Loch Ness - Nevis RangeWe are officially now in the Highlands! Passing through some of Scotand’s most iconic scenery; the desolate moorlands of Ranoch Moor and Glencoe. A very historic region, home to Clan MacDonald and a horrific massacre in 1692. Also used in movies including Bollywood’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and James Bond: Skyfall. Lunch will be in Fort William, Scotland’s outdoor adventure capital.

    After we will have a chance to explore the ruins of Inverlochy Castle; the origins of this historic town. Then as an option we can go to the Nevis Range.

Giving you plenty of time to get acquainted with the surroundings and a chance to hunt Nessie. There are evening cruises available in the summer time.

    Day 2: Loch Ness is part of the Great Glen, a natural fault line connected 5 lochs from Fort William to Inverness. These lochs are joined by the Caledonian Canal, a great piece of British engineering built in the 19th century. Loch Ness is not the deepest in Scotland but hold the most volume of water, and is said to have a monster lurking its waters.
