Itinerary

Day 1Edinburgh - Inverness

You leave Edinburgh and head north across the River Forth towards the Highlands. 

The first stop is Pitlochry, a quintessential Scottish town nestled among the hills of Perthshire. Get some coffee and find out why Queen Victoria loved this place before you cross into the Cairngorms National Park. 

This wild heart of the Highlands teems with mountains, rivers, lochs, and wildlife hotspots and is a magnet for all nature lovers. We head to Aviemore, a bustling hub for all outdoors activities, where you can try local specialities before you travel to Loch Morlich, which is as unique as it is bonnie.  

Leave the majestic mountains and step back in time at Clava Cairns near Inverness. These ancient standing stones and ring cairns are as beautiful as they are mysterious and were made famous by Diana Gabaldon in the Outlander books. 

Then it’s just a short drive to Inverness, where you’re dropped off at your accommodation. 

The evening is free for you to explore the Capital of the Highlands. 

Day 2Inverness - Edinburgh

After a leisurely breakfast, you’re picked up from your accommodation and taken into the surrounding countryside. 

You travel to the mysterious Loch Ness where you have the chance to take a boat trip along the loch and visit dramatic Urquhart Castle.

Our journey continues south through the Great Glen past Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK, towards Fort William. You stop for lunch along the way before arriving in Glencoe. One look and you’ll understand why its one of the most famous natural landmarks in all of Scotland. There’s also a tragic tale that’s haunted this valley for over 300 years… perhaps your guide will tell you all about it.

The return journey continues over the wild and remote Rannoch Moor and into the Lowland scenery around Stirling, before finally reaching our starting point of Edinburgh. 

The cruise is subject to availability. (April to October)

The Loch Ness boat cruise is weather dependent and may be cancelled without notice.

The Loch Ness boat cruise will be closed for winter between 8th January 2024 up to and including 14th January 2024. They will open again on Monday 15th January.  (B)
