A stunning day tour of the Highlands, a land of forests, mountains, rivers and glens. Visit a local whisky distillery and sample a warming dram of single malt whisky. The day concludes with our return to Edinburgh in time for an evening at the world famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
- The World Famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo
- Hermitage Forest Walk
- Whisky Distillery Visit
- Dunkeld Cathedral
- Wallace Monument
We leave Edinburgh behind and pass Stirling with views of its impressive Castle and the Wallace Monument. Then it's into the Highlands through the scenic beauty of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, once home to the infamous cattle thief and rogue, Rob Roy MacGregor. We follow the shoreline of beautiful Loch Earn before visiting a local whisky distillery where you can take an optional tour, learn how the 'water of life' is made and sample a wee dram for yourself.
We then explore the peaceful Hermitage and take a short woodland walk to see the Black Linn Falls on the River Braan. We take in Dunkeld with its spectacular cathedral on the banks of the River Tay before returning south past the inspiring Forth Bridge.
Back in Edinburgh, you will have time to return to your accommodation or explore the city before making your own way to the evening performance of the Military Tattoo at Edinburgh Castle. Alternatively you can also choose to have a pre Tattoo Supper at Cafe Hub, situated at the foot of Edinburgh Castle where you'll be minutes away from where the Military Tattoo takes place.
