Full Tour Itinerary
Leaving Edinburgh behind we head towards Stirling with its ancient castle then stop for morning coffee at Kilmahog. Next it's Rob Roy Country and dramatic Rannoch Moor before arriving at the Weeping Glen – Glen Coe, the infamous site of the 1692 Massacre of the resident MacDonalds by Government troops of the Campbell Clan.
After a short drive we arrive at Fort William which sits in the shadow of Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain. After time for lunch there's a photo stop at Spean Bridge before we enter the scenic beauty of the famous Great Glen, a landscape of soaring mountains and shimmering lochs.
Our journey follows the route of the Caledonian Canal to Loch Ness and the impressive ruins of Urquhart Castle. The Castle provides a superb vantage point to see the deepest part of the loch. Here you can enjoy an optional visit to the castle and take a short cruise on the loch.
