Join us on this wonderful Highland tour that will take you through some of the finest scenery in Europe, and enjoy a drive along the entire length of Loch Ness with the chance for an optional visit to Urquhart Castle and loch cruise.

From Edinburgh we leave the city behind and head towards the Highlands. Soon there are fine views of Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument, which commemorates William Wallace, the real Braveheart.

We make a stop for morning coffee in Kilmahog before crossing from the Lowlands into the Highlands – a region that is steeped in history, stunning scenery and exciting adventures. Next it's on through bonnie Strathyre and Rob Roy MacGregor country to sprawling Rannoch moor, one of the last truly wild places left in Europe.

No matter the weather there is nothing that will prepare you for the beauty of Glen Coe. This famous valley resonates through Scottish history as a place of great significance. We will make a stop here so you can soak up the atmosphere of this special place for yourself.

Fort William, the largest town in the Highlands, sits at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain's tallest mountain. We'll stop to enjoy the vista before heading into the Great Glen, a picturesque valley of lochs and mountains whose history has been carved from bitter clan disputes, as we shall hear.

Mysterious and evocative Loch Ness is a real highlight. We'll drive along the entire length of the loch making a stop at Urquhart Castle, a popular vantage point with "Nessie” spotters! You can mount your own exploration by taking time to visit the castle and enjoying a short cruise on the loch*.

Inverness, the Capital of the Highlands is next before we turn southwards and make our way into the Cairngorms National Park, home to some of Scotland's tallest mountains and rarest wildlife. We cross the wild and wonderful Grampian Mountains to reach Perthshire, known as "Big Tree Country”. You'll soon discover why!

The River Tay, Scotland's longest river, will guide us gently towards  Perth and the last part of our journey together through the ancient Kingdom of  Fife. There are wonderful views of the Forth Rail Bridge as we make our way into Edinburgh and journey's end.
