BOOK TOUR


The ultimate weekend trip to the Scottish Highlands


 
 

Tour Highlights:

Inverness, Capital of the Highlands
Loch Ness and the world famous monster
Eerie Glencoe, the 'Weeping Glen'
Culloden Battlefield, site of the last major battle on British soil
Have a dram at a local whisky distillery

Day 1: Edinburgh to Inverness
Heading north we pass the famous Forth Bridge and into Perthshire, surrounded by mountains, forests and salmon packed rivers. We stop in Dunkeld, heart of Macbeth country and its mighty cathedral
Hear tales of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the tragedy of his defeat on the eerie moor of lonely Culloden Battlefield, scene of the last major battle in Britain. The Highland Capital is our home for the night

Day 2: Inverness to Edinburgh
Winding our way down the west coast of Scotland, we'll visit the monstrous Loch Ness and the mysterious and haunting Glencoe, areas that formed the backdrop to the 'Harry Potter' movies, 'Braveheart' and 'Rob Roy'. We cross the wilds of Rannoch Moor (watch out for stags) and south, past historic Stirling, arriving back in Edinburgh early evening

Inverness: Capital of the Highlands

The most northerly city in the British Isles and surrounded by mountains, Inverness sits at the north-eastern edge of the Great Glen, where the River Ness meets the sea
Sight of many skirmishes throughout history, Inverness is now known for a great night out with loads of pubs, clubs and a local music scene that is hard to beat. You haven’t had a proper Saturday night out until you have one in Scotland
