  • Go to beautiful Cairngorms National Park
  • Marvel at the beautiful sights
  • Embark on a Loch Ness boat cruise
Overview
This tour takes you to some amazing places in the Scottish highlands with scenery that has to be seen to be believed. You will get the chance to see some of the scenery and backdrops used in major films such as Harry Potter and James Bond.
What to Expect
Leaving Edinburgh at 8am and heading north towards Pitlochry, a town known for its holiday atmosphere and friendly locals. You will be stopping here for a coffee or bite to eat in one of the lovely little establishments on offer in this beautiful town. From Pitlochry head towards the enchanting Dalwhinnie Distillery where you will stop to enable you to take part in a tour of the distillery and sample their famous drop. Then continue on towards Loch Ness, driving alongside the Beautiful Cairngorms National Park that will offer magnificent scenery as you continue your journey towards Fort Augustus and the famous and mysterious Loch Ness.

Upon arrival at Fort Augustus you will have the opportunity to take a 1hr cruise (Weather Permitting & Optional) out on Loch Ness where you will see the magnificent shoreline and wildlife that inhabits the area. Keep your eyes peeled though, you may catch a glimpse of Nessie. If you choose not to enjoy the cruise you can take a walk around Fort Augustus and have a bite to eat in one of the many restaurants and cafes that are open or you may decide to walk to the shoreline of Loch Ness for a photo opportunity.

Don’t forget to check out the Caledonian Canal which was a purpose built canal that allowed vessels to move between the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea

Upon departure from Fort Augustus and Loch Ness, head through the Great Glen taking in its unbelievable scenery and then pass under the shadow of the highest mountain in Britain, Ben Nevis. Continuing back past Loch Linnhe move through the haunting backdrop of Glen Coe, the site of the famous massacre of the MacDonald clan in 1692. You will have an opportunity to take photos and if you are a Harry Potter fan you may recognize the backdrop to Hogwarts School is right in front of your eyes.

Continuing on your way back to Edinburgh via the vast and impressive landscape of the Black Mount and Rannoch Moor and move your way through Rob Roy country, home to the clans of MacGregor and Campbell. Stop a while after this for a coffee break in the quaint town of Callander, giving you a chance to stretch your legs before continuing.

Heading on the home stretch to Edinburgh pass through Stirling where you will encounter impressive views of the awesome Stirling Castle (weather permitting), perched high up on a piece of volcanic rock and the equally impressive National Wallace Monument (weather permitting) just to its left. Shortly after this arrive back into Edinburgh at approximately 8-8:30pm where you will disembark and enjoy the wonders this beautiful city has to offer and recall the tales of the trip you have just experienced.
