Enjoy two days in the North West Highlands: Experience a dramatic landscape rich in history and natural beauty with a visit to the dramatic Eilean Donan Castle and enjoy an overnight stay in the Highland town of Fort William.

Day 1

From Edinburgh our Eilean Donan tour will head west to collect our Glasgow passengers*, then via Stirling, catching a glimpse of its majestic Castle. We visit the Wallace Monument, the towering stone testimonial to the Scottish legend William Wallace, and afterwards pass Doune Castle, location for the film, "Monty Python & The Holy Grail".

After lunch, time permitting, your two day Eilean Donan tour from Edinburgh makes a brief visit to Rob Roy’s Grave and then to the pretty village of Killin for photos. We continue our journey north via Tyndrum across the atmospheric Rannoch Moor, continuing 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 on the first day of our Eilean Donan tour is the Highland town of Fort William, where we check into our accommodation.

Day 2

After breakfast the Eilean Donan tour will 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 Glen Garry, before arriving at one of the most iconic castles in Scotland, Eilean Donan Castle (interior closed in winter) 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 our Eilean Donan tour will begin its return journey, enjoying a photo stop to admire Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, at 1,344 metres.

Then we travel via The Hermitage, stopping for a gentle forest walk in idyllic Scottish woodland, before crossing the Forth Bridges, back to Edinburgh where your two day Eilean Donan tour will end.
