A fantastic tour to Loch Ness visiting a diverse range of classic Highland scenery including many ‘must see’ sights and the chance to go monster hunting on Loch Ness! Other highlights include dramatic Glencoe, mighty Ben Nevis and the Great Glen.

ITINERARY

Departing 8:00 am and heading north from Edinburgh we pass the imposing ramparts of Stirling Castle and drive through the Trossachs National Park, Rob Roy country. We cross the wilds of Rannoch Moor before stopping at dramatic Glencoe, the scene of the infamous massacre in 1692. Our journey takes us through Fort William passing Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, before entering the Great Glen.

Arriving in Fort Augustus on the banks of Loch Ness, you have the chance to take a boat cruise on the loch, go for a walk or just relax by the Caledonian Canal in this charming Highland village.

Our return journey takes us past shimmering Loch Laggan before climbing over the wild and lonely Drumochter Pass in the Cairngorms National Park. Heading south, we enter Perthshire, a land of forests, rivers and mountains, where we stop in a wee village. We continue south over the Firth of Forth where we view the spectacular Forth Bridges before arriving back in Edinburgh around 08:00 pm.

Free 'Taste of Scotland' picnic lunch

Enjoy our locally produced ‘Taste of Scotland’ picnic lunch in Fort Augustus. Typical lunch includes: a bottle of Scottish mineral water, a choice of freshly made sandwiches and shortbread. Take your lunch on the boat or enjoy a picnic by the canal or banks of Loch Ness.


*Our tours are conducted in English, by our Guides, however foreign language translations are available in German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, French and Mandarin, with more languages to follow.
