Scottish Highlands Tour
Loch Ness and The Highlands
We start our journey from Edinburgh travelling North-West towards the Scottish Highlands and see some of the most spectacular and breathtaking scenery Scotland has to offer. It really is a sight to behold!
We pass by Linlithgow Palace,Kelpies and Stirling Castle before making our first stop at Kilmahog Callender, where you can enjoy refreshments and some shopping for souvenirs, and maybe get the chance to meet the resident Highland Cattle (Hamish, the Hairy Coo) who loves getting his photo taken.
Keep your camera's out as we then drive through the rugged mountains and Glens which were once battlefields for the Macdonald and Campbell clans. You will hear of the famous massacre of Glencoe that took place between them in 1692.
We will keep heading north passing through Fort William, where you will see the splendor of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK.
Continuing our journey we will arrive in Fort Augustus (Loch Ness).Here you will have two hours to relax in the tranquil village on the banks of the Lock.
You can enjoy food and refreshments and the option to cruise on the loch,maybe even catching a glimpse of Nessie The Lock Ness Monster.
So have your cameras ready!!
After Fort Augustus we will head southeast, making a stop at the Commando Memorial for approx 15 minutes where you can take stunning photos from this panoramic viewpoint. Continue heading southeast and take in the splendid views of Loch Laggan and Cairngorms, Britain's Largest National Park. Before stopping at the beautiful Victorian Resort town Pitlochry where you can enjoy an evening refreshment.
We then head south on our journey back to Edinburgh, passing Perth, before driving over the Forth Road Bridge, where you will also see the Rail Bridge and the beautifully designed Queensferry crossing.
