Jump on board the mini-coach for a classic tour of Loch Ness and the Scottish Highlands. Travel through spectacular scenery and marvel at castles and historic sites seen in well-known films. Be on the lookout for the elusive Loch Ness monster!
What to Expect
On your full-day tour of the Scottish Highlands you’ll head out from Edinburgh, pass Linlithgow Palace (birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots) and past the National Wallace Monument. Your guide will tell you the real story of Braveheart and William Wallace's tactics that led to victory against English invaders.
There's a brief glimpse of Doune Castle for Monty Python, Game of Thrones and Outlander fans before a morning coffee stop in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Options include the Highland gateway village of Callander or the stunning mountain views at beautiful Loch Lubnaig.
At Loch Tulla you’ll marvel at the fantastic views and then travel across the wilderness of Rannoch Moor to Glen Coe. This setting may seem familiar, as it was a site used in the filming of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
A lunch stop is next on the itinerary before heading to Loch Ness. On the way to the loch you’ll enjoy views of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Britain, at 1344 meters. Fort Augustus is situated on the banks of legendary Loch Ness and it’s from this point that you’ll have time to search for the loch’s famous monster. A boat trip on the lake is available as a tour option.
On the return trip to Edinburgh you’ll travel through the Grampian Mountains and stop in Highland Perthshire, truly the heart of the Highlands.
