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.
We'll move through Clan Campbell and MacGregor territory, into Rannoch Moor, to the spectacular valley of Glencoe, passing beneath Scotland’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, and into the Great Glen, a glacial valley. After lunch in the Fort William area we’ll see the magnificent "Five Sisters of Kintail" mountains before crossing over the Skye Bridge, on to the island of Skye. We’ll arrive in the fishing town of Portree early evening.
After breakfast, explore the island with your guide. Choose from the Trotternish peninsula, the bizarre rock formations of the Old Man of Storr, the famous Cuillins mountains, or the bizarre rock formations of the Quiraing and Kilt Rock. Try out some whisky at Talisker Distillery or further west, visit Dunvegan Castle, home to the Clan MacLeod and the oldest inhabited castle in Britain, before returning to Portree for a free evening to explore.
Heading homewards, enjoy a visit to the stunning Eilean Donan Castle, featured in the movie Highlander, then we’ll stop for lunch in Fort Augustus, with its spectacular views of Loch Ness. Continuing south, we pass through the Grampian Mountains, Loch Laggan, and Dalwhinnie - Scotland’s highest whisky distillery - then on past Blair Castle. We'll stop for refreshments in the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry before our return 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.
