We leave Edinburgh and cross over to Glasgow to pick up more passengers (if applicable). We then head west, first stopping at the pretty conservation village of Luss, on the ‘Bonny Bonny Banks’ of Loch Lomond. We descend into the atmospheric expanse of Rannoch Moor, passing the Black Mount, to dramatic Glencoe, site of the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald Clan. Take a leisurely walk soaking in the atmosphere of this haunting glen, before continuing north towards Fort William and Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis.
After lunch in the Fort William area, we trace the 24-mile shoreline of Loch Ness, passing Urquhart Castle, then on to Inverness, capital of the Highlands, where we arrive early evening.
Enjoy a flexible itinerary today - you may choose to visit the fascinating Culloden Battlefield, where the Jacobites and Bonnie Prince Charlie were defeated by the Duke of Cumberland, and glimpse the ancient stones of the Neolithic Clava Cairns, before the opportunity for a visit and whisky tasting at Dalwhinnie Distillery.
After a lunch stop we move south for a visit to the old military garrison of Ruthven Barracks, built by General Wade. We continue our return journey via The Hermitage, stopping for a gentle forest walk (this option will only be possible in the summer months), before we cross the Forth Bridge, back to Edinburgh where the tour terminates.
If continuing to Glasgow, your guide will take you to Edinburgh Waverley railway station for the 50-minute journey by train, courtesy of Timberbush Tours.
