Itinerary

The tour starts from 60 High Street, the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, where you will be picked up in an air-conditioned coach and taken to Loch Ness. An English-speaking guide will accompany you on this tour.

Heading north from Edinburgh we pass the imposing ramparts of Stirling Castle, skirt the Trossachs (Rob Roy country) before crossing the wilds of Rannoch Moor and onto dramatic Glencoe, site of the massacre of the McDonald clan in 1692.

Our tour takes us past Fort William and Britain’s highest mountain, the mighty Ben Nevis before following the Great Glen and stopping in the village of Fort Augustus by the shores of mysterious Loch Ness.

You have the option (subject to availability during winter months) to take a boat trip on mysterious Loch Ness and hunt for Nessie, explore the shores of the loch or simply relax and enjoy your free locally produced picnic lunch. (A typical lunch includes a bottle of Scottish mineral water, a choice of freshly made sandwiches, fresh fruit and shortbread).

Our return journey passes south along Loch Laggan stopping at one of the quaint Highland villages along the way. After one last sight of the spectacular Forth Bridges we arrive back in the Capital around 8:00pm.

Loch Ness Cruise option (subject to availability during winter months) A cruise on Loch Ness is an unforgettable experience, where you might just catch a glimpse of Nessie. We use locally owned custom built boats, designed with sonar and underwater imaging systems, giving you a fascinating view of the terrain and life underwater. You can also enjoy the views with a coffee or beer from the onboard bar. The cruise lasts about 1 hour.

The tour ends at 60 High Street, the Royal Mile in Edinburgh (the original starting point).
