About this tour


Heading into the Highlands we pass some of Scotland’s most important historical sites, including Stirling Castle and the National Wallace Monument. From there we travel into the Trossachs National Park amid magnificent Scottish scenery to our first stop in the pretty town of Callander.


Next we take in breath-taking scenery as we head through the remains of the ancient super volcano that is Glencoe. Your guide will tell you about the significant events that have shaped this land, from the Picts of the Iron Age to the Highlanders, who fought clan battles on these very hillsides. Your driver will stop at the best spots for photo opportunities.

Loch Ness

Arriving in Fort Augustus in time for lunch by the impressive Caledonian Canal and its series of lochs, we look out over the famous Loch Ness. You can even venture out onto the loch on one of Cruise Loch Ness’ modern boats (optional, admission not included). Keep your eyes peeled for Nessie!


Leaving the banks of Loch Ness, we journey south passing through the stunning Cairngorms National Park – the UK’s largest National Park. We then stop  off at the beautiful town of Pitlochry, reputed as Queen Victoria’s favourite highland town and sure to become yours too!
