    Itinerary:

    Day 1
    From Edinburgh we head west to pick up our Glasgow passengers, first stopping at the pretty conservation village of Luss on the Bonnie Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond. We descend into the great expanse of Rannoch Moor, passing the Black Mount to dramatic Glencoe, site of the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald Clan. Here we pause for a leisurely walk to soak in the atmosphere of this haunting glen before continuing north towards Fort William and Britain'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.

    Day 2
    Enjoy a flexible itinerary today - you may choose to visit the fascinating Culloden Battlefield, where Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites were defeated by the Duke of Cumberland's government forces, and glimpse the ancient stones of the Neolithic Clava Cairns, before the opportunity for a visit and whisky tasting at Tomatin Distillery.

    After a lunch stop in the ski resort town of Aviemore, we move south for a visit to the old military garrison of Ruthven Barracks, built by General Wade. We continue our return journey via the Hermitage, stopping for a gentle forest walk in idyllic Scottish woodland, before we cross the Forth Road Bridge back to Edinburgh

    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.
