If departing from Edinburgh, we'll head north-west, via Stirling, where we'll stop for photos of its magnificent Castle then after a stop at Kilmahog we'll travel past Doune, Callander and through the Trossachs climbing up via Crianlarich, into the Highlands. If departing from Glasgow, first we head west, making a stop at the 'Bonny, Bonny Banks' of Loch Lomond and the pretty conservation village of Luss before moving up via Tyndrum.
Both departures follow the scenic routes into the Highlands where we descend into the desolate expanse of Rannoch Moor, passing the Black Mount, to the valley of Glencoe - infamous for its bloody massacre of the MacDonalds in 1692 - where we can enjoy a leisurely walk. We continue north towards the Highland town of Fort William, nestling in the shadow of Scotland's tallest mountain, Ben Nevis. After lunch in the Fort William area, our final destination is Inverness, capital of the Highlands, where we'll arrive early evening.
Enjoy a flexible itinerary today with your guide. We may choose to visit the fascinating Culloden Battlefield, where the Jacobites and Bonnie Prince Charlie were defeated by the Duke of Cumberland, then returning to the A9 road, on the south edge of the moor we'll see the ancient stones of the Neolithic Clava Clairns, before the opportunity for a visit and whisky tasting at Tomatin Distillery.
After a lunch stop in the ski resort area of Aviemore we'll move south to get a glimpse of the ospreys at the Loch Garten Osprey Centre# or visit the old military garrison of Ruthven Barracks, built by General Wade. At the Highland Folk Museum in Kingussie we can see examples of domestic and agricultural Highland life. We'll start our return journey via Perthshire, stopping at the pretty woodland of The Hermitage for a forest walk, glimpsing the 18th 'folly' of Ossian’s Hall before crossing the Forth back to Edinburgh.

The exact itinerary of this tour will vary slightly depending on whether the coach is departing directly from Edinburgh or is travelling via Glasgow to collect passengers.
In order to limit the environmental impact from our extended tours, our tours pick up passengers in Edinburgh first and then pick up in Glasgow. On the return journey the coach returns to Edinburgh only. Our passengers returning to Glasgow are provided with a free Edinburgh - Glasgow rail ticket for this part of the return journey by train. Passengers are dropped at Waverley Rail Station for the return journey to Glasgow. Please bear this in mind when making any onward travel connections you may have after your tour with us.
