Loch Ness, Glencoe & The Highlands Day Trip
Learn about the mythical beasts and tall tales of Scottish lore as you discover the country's dramatic scenery on this full-day guided bus tour. Visit Callander, Glencoe, Loch Ness, and more.
Leaving from Charlotte Square, Edinburgh, we head northwest towards our first stop in Callander, passing famous landmarks such as Linlithgow Palace: birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, the mystical Kelpies, and the dramatically perched Stirling Castle. The stop Callander is where you can grab some refreshments and the chance to meet one of the resident Highland Cows (season dependant).
Continuing our travels through Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, your Driver / Guide will keep you entertained with historical tales and fun facts, before stopping in the centre of Glencoe for some photos of the dramatic ridges called the Three Sisters.
Travelling north along the banks of Loch Linnhe, our next stop will be in the Fort William area for lunch before heading into the natural beauty of the Great Glen as we pass Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis. We stop at Spean Bridge to take in the views of Ben Nevis and admire the Commando Memorial.
Heading further into the highlands we arrive in the small picturesque village of Fort Augustus - you can choose to take part in an optional boat cruise here (payable on the day). For those not partaking in the Loch Ness Cruise, you can relax in one of the local coffee shops or spend your time exploring the area. Loch Ness, 24 miles long and over 700 feet deep, is most famous for its sightings of the Loch Ness monster, known as “Nessie”.
All tired out from the action packed day, our tour will begin its journey south. The road home will be time to relax and take in the Highland scenery as we cut through the Cairngorms National Park and the scenic woodland of Perthshire. Final refreshment stop is at the historic town of Pitlochry before continuing the journey home over the Firth of Forth alongside UNESCO Forth Rail Bridge enroute back into Edinburgh.
