"Andy was an amazing guide with a wicked sense of humour. He made the trip very entertaining and was very personable. Lunch was a nice selection of traditional Scottish food and a dash of whisky to accompany it. Would highly recommend the tour.

Itinerary


Tour starts 08:00am. 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, 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 at 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 20:00.
