From Edinburgh we head west to collect our Glasgow passengers, then travel past Stirling, catching a glimpse of its majestic Castle. We visit the Wallace Monument, a towering stone testimonial to the Scottish legend William Wallace, which contains his 5ft 6in (1.7m) tall sword. Next we continue on, passing medival Doune Castle, location for the film, 'Monty Python & the Holy Grail.'
After lunch, we journey north via Tyndrum across the atmospheric Rannoch Moor, travelling on to Glencoe, site of the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald Clan, for a brief walk and photos. We then continue to the stunning Glenfinnan Viaduct, made famous by the Harry Potter films, for a photo opportunity (Apr-Oct). Our final stop is the Highland town of Fort William, where we check into our accommodation.
After breakfast, we head north into the Great Glen, a geographical fault line characterised by a chain of impressive lochs, including Loch Ness. We enjoy a photo stop at Loch Garry before arriving at one of the most iconic castles in Scotland; Eilean Donan, to explore the Castle and its beautiful setting.
Our journey continues with a stop for lunch and views of Loch Ness in the pretty lochside village of Fort Augustus. After lunch we start our return journey, enjoying a photo stop to admire Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain at 1344 metres.
Then we travel via The Hermitage, stopping for a gentle forest walk in idyllic Scottish woodland before crossing the Forth Road Bridge 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.
