Itinerary:

  1. We leave your accommodation and drive towards the stunning Trossach National Park, where we stop and enjoy the views over the shimmering Loch Lomond, which is Scotland’s largest freshwater loch. You can also gaze upon our most southerly Munroe, Ben Lomond.
  2. Cross over the ancient national fault line and travel into the highlands, where the landscapes change dramatically. This is where we first catch a glimpse of the Rannoch Moor, which is covered in heather, lochans, and peat bogs. You also enjoy stunning views of the Black Mount and the Buachaille Etive Mor.
  3. We then travel through Scotland’s most famous valley, Glencoe. Feel history come alive when we tell the tales of the massacre of the Macdonald clan, which took place in 1692.
  4. We soon arrive at the highland village called Fort Augustus, which sits on the south side of Loch Ness. We have lunch here and enjoy the views of the famous Loch from a lochside restaurant.
  5. From here we take the short journey towards the famous Urquhart Castle that lies on the banks of Loch Ness. This is where you can enjoy the panoramic views of the loch as well as discover more than 1000 years of history, as the castle has been home to some of the most historic chapters of Scotland’s story. Urquhart castle was a government stronghold during the Jacobite risings and finally destroyed when Clan Grant decided to leave the castle for good, stopping the enemy from taking it for themselves.
  6. From Loch Ness, we head south through the mountains of the Cairngorms National Park. You continue south through the forests of Perthshire and make a short refreshment stop at the highland village called Pitlochry. We then take you to your accommodation.
