    Tour Description:

    Loch Ness/Highlands Tour of ScotlandTake two leisurely days, travel in comfort in a small group tour of Scotland and savour the delights of the Scottish Highlands with your tour guide; see rivers, lochs, and mountains, and experience plenty of rich Highland history - with an overnight stay in the Highland capital of Inverness.

    Urquhart Castle - Scotland Tour
    From Edinburgh we head west to pick up our Glasgow passengers*, stopping at the pretty conservation village of Luss, on the 'Bonny, Bonny, Banks' of Loch Lomond. On tours where the coach has no pick ups from Glasgow*, the route will travel via Stirling.

    We descend into the desolate expanse of Rannoch Moor, passing the Black Mount, Fort William and Ben Nevis - Scotland Tourto the dramatic Glencoe, made famous by the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald Clan. Enjoy a leisurely walk here before continuing north towards Fort William and Scotland's highest mountain, Ben Nevis.

    After lunch in the Fort William area, we trace the 24 mile shoreline of Loch Ness, passing Urquhart Castle, then on to Inverness, capital of the Highlands, where we arrive early evening.

    Jacobite cruise - Scotland Tour
    Enjoy a flexible itinerary today with your guide - you may choose to visit the fascinating Culloden Battlefield, where the Jacobites and Bonnie Prince Charlie were defeated by the Duke of Cumberland, and glimpse the ancient stones of the Neolithic Clava Clairns, before the opportunity for a visit and whisky tasting at Tomatin Distillery.

    Dunkeld - Scotland TourAfter a lunch stop in the ski resort area of Aviemore we move south to visit the old military garrison at Ruthven Barracks, built by General Wade. We start our return journey via The Hermitage, stopping for a gentle forest walk, before we cross the Forth Bridges, back to Edinburgh.
