Best One Day Tours From Edinburgh
We offer many Tours from Edinburgh but a favourite for our guests is always The Highlander Experience. The Scottish Highlands are without doubt some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Our tour offers you an experience packed with history and beauty and is perfect for those travelers that are short on time and want to see as much of Scotland as they can on a one day tour.
We pick up our guests directly from their accommodation and drive towards the stunning Trossach National Park where we make a visit at the historical village called Luss. We enjoy the stunning views over the shimmering Loch Lomond, which is Scotland’s largest fresh water loch, and Scotland’s most southerly Munroe, Ben Lomond.
We soon crossover the ancient highland fault line and travel into the highlands of Scotland where the landscapes change dramatically. This is where we first catch a glimpse of the Rannoch Moor, which is covered in heather, lochans and peatbogs. We also enjoy the breathtaking views of the Black Mount and the Buachaille Etive Mor where the mountains really come alive.
One of our favourite locations to visit in Scotland is the valley of the weeping Glen, Glencoe. Feel history come alive when we tell the tales of the massacre of the Macdonald clan, which took place in 1692. No matter how many times we visit Glencoe, it always feels like the first time we have seen it as the scenery changes so dramatically every second of the day.
This is where we stop for our lunch stop to enjoy a traditional Scottish meal and a wee dram at our favourite award winning restaurant The Clachaig Inn.
After lunch, we travel south towards the shores of Loch Linnhe and enjoy the views of the impregnable Castle Stalker. This was once the historical home of the Lord of Lorn, John Stewart. Passing by glens and lochs, we soon approach our second castle of the day, Kilchurn Castle, which sits on the banks of Loch Awe. This was once home to the mighty clan Campbell of Glenorchy.
We finish our tour by making a quick refreshment stop at the picturesque harbour town of Inveraray, famous for the 18th-century castle and home of the Duke of Argyll, chief of the Campbell clan. This is the perfect place to pick up a souvenir in the local shops before we return our guests to their Lodgings in the capital city.
