"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


Heading north from Edinburgh at 08.00am 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, the scene of the infamous massacre in 1692. Our journey takes us through Fort William and majestic Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest peak before arriving at the banks of Loch Ness.

Upon arrival in Fort Augustus you are seated by the friendly staff at the award-winning restaurant at the Lovat Hotel and treated to a delicious ‘Taste of Scotland’ lunch, which is the celebration of Scotland’s finest produce. You have an opportunity to indulge in the best local specialities like smoked salmon, haggis, wild game and whisky. After lunch you can go ‘Nessie hunting’ on a short walk to the shoreline or just relax by the Caledonian Canal.

On our journey back we travel east along the banks of shimmering Loch Laggan and witness more stunning Highland scenery. The next step of our journey takes us over the Drumochter Pass through the Cairngorms National Park and on to Perthshire, a land of forests, rivers and mountains. We view the spectacular Forth Bridges before arriving back in Edinburgh around 8.00pm.
