Day 1: Edinburgh to Loch Ness
We leave Scotland's capital and head past the capital of Stirling, home to legends such as William Wallace and Robert the Bruce and scene of many of Scotland's most famous and bloody battles in the Wars of Independence
Our route north takes us through dramatic Glencoe, the 'Weeping Glen' and site of the massacre of 1692. Continuing north to the Great Glen and under the shadow of Ben Nevis we arrive at Fort Augustus on the shores of Loch Ness

Day 2: Isle of Skye
Today we explore the 'winged isle' or 'Isle of Mist' with its ruined castles, awesome scenery and home to the legendary MacLeod and MacDonald Clans
Immersed in Celtic myths and Viking legends, hear tales abound with faeries and fights, we explore the windswept landscape and brooding Red and Black Cuillin Mountain ranges. There is also the chance for a hike through this stunning environment before we return to the mainland past the beautiful Eilean Donan Castle

Day 3: Loch Ness to Edinburgh
We follow the entire length of Loch Ness, searching for a glimpse of the legendary beast. Journeying on through Inverness, capital of the Highlands, we head for the sweeping and eerie Culloden Moor, sight of the defeat of Bonne Prince Charlie's Jacobite uprising
Heading south we make our way to Dunkeld with its mighty Cathedral and through Macbeth country before crossing the Forth Road Bridge and our return to Edinburgh

Are there any age restrictions
We are the leading youth travel tour operator in Scotland so the majority of our passengers are in the 18 to 35 age bracket and our style of travel reflects this
The minimum age on all tours is 17. There is no maximum age. As long as you are reasonably fit and have a good sense of fun, we are sure you will have a fantastic time

Will there be people travelling on their own
Whilst we regularly get couples and friends travelling together, every tour has loads of people travelling on their own and down to our style of travel, you'll get to know everyone soon enough
