Day one begins with an introduction to Scotland’s capital Edinburgh, before our driver-guide takes you to Glasgow to meet the rest of your group. We’ll then see the beautiful Loch Lomond, from the beach at Luss; you’ll get stunning views of Ben Lomond from here. We’ll also stop to see Loch Tulla before making our way further north to Glen Coe. This journey will take you through Scotland’s unsettling past, with your driver-guide telling the story of the MacDonald Clan Massacre that was carried out here in 1692. You’ll be able to stand amongst one of the most spectacular sights in Scotland: Glen Coe. We then continue on to Fort William, a town domineered by Ben Nevis, the tallest mountain in the UK. There will be ample time here to explore and have lunch (own expense) before we drive along the banks of Loch Ness, towards our overnight stop.
The morning of day two belongs to Loch Ness, home of the famous monster Nessie. You’ll have the opportunity to do a cruise (own expense) and see the incredible Urquhart Castle (own expense). This romantic ruin is one of Scotland’s most visited castles; you won’t want to miss it! In the afternoon you’ll get the chance to explore the sight of Culloden (own expense), in 1747 the Jacobite army fought to reclaim the throne of Britain from the Hanoverians for a Stuart king. We’ll also visit a whisky distillery, giving you the opportunity to learn how to make the perfect dram and try some for yourself (own expense). Our final stop of day two will be in a pretty town in Perth and Kinross, before we return to Edinburgh at 7pm approximately.
