Day 1 You will depart Edinburgh and head north across the River Forth towards the Highlands. We make a short stop in the holiday town of Pitlochry where you have the option to visit the local whisky distillery. From here the tour takes you past Blair Castle into the Cairngorm National Park, where we stop for lunch and spend time taking in the majesty of this amazing area within the ancient Caledonian Pine Forests of the Rothiemurchus Estate. You then continue north and arrive at your destination of Inverness, where you will be dropped off at your accommodation. The evening is free for you to explore the capital of the Highlands
Day 2 After a leisurely breakfast you will be picked up from your accommodation in Inverness and explore the surrounding countryside en route to Loch Ness. Here you have the chance to either take a boat trip along the loch with great views of Urquhart Castle or stay on shore and visit the impressive ruins of the castle, overlooking the loch. Our journey continues south through the Great Glen past Ben Nevis and Fort William, stopping for lunch along the way before arriving in Glencoe. This haunting glen was the scene of a terrible massacre in 1692, where many of the Clan Macdonald was slaughtered. The return journey continues over the wild and remote Rannoch Moor and into the countryside around Stirling, before finally reaching our starting point of Edinburgh. Arrive approx. 19.00.
