Description

With its wild landscapes, the Scottish Highlands is a postcard-perfect setting for exploring Gaelic legend and the history of clan battles. Soak up the epic scenery of verdant valleys framed by rocky crags, crumbling castles, and Loch Ness, home of the mythical lake monster.

Depart Edinburgh and drive toward the Highlands, passing Linlithgow Palace—birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots—and the hilltop domain of Stirling Castle. Gaze at the turreted monument to William Wallace, the Scot celebrated in the film Braveheart.

Learn about the battles that raged across this vast terrain during centuries past, and stop for coffee in riverside Callander before crossing the Highland Boundary Fault Line. Watch flat plains fade away and gleaming lakes, forested valleys, and rugged mountains take their place. Ride over the peat bog-blanketed expanse of Rannoch Moor to Glen Coe, where you learn about the 1692 massacre that took place here and how it changed the Highlands forever.

Pass beneath Ben Nevis—Britain's highest peak—and arrive in Fort Augustus on the shores of Loch Ness. Enjoy a few hours of free time to delve into the mysterious tales behind the lake's monstrous resident or grab a bite to eat in town. Continue through mountainous Cairngorms National Park along Loch Laggan and past the 13th-century Blair Castle. In the Perthshire Highlands, see Scotland's medieval capital and Loch Leven before crossing over the magnificent Forth Bridge on your return trip to Edinburgh.

Great tour, our guide and driver Jim was very knowledgeable and friendly. Enjoyed all the stops, scenery was amazing, Glen Coe was probably the best. Unfortunately we didn’t manage to see Nessie but the Lochs were beautiful. Definitely recommend Rabbies!

Long travel day, but worth the experience to see Loch Ness. Dougie was an excellent tour guide and driver and made the whole experience move smoothly.
