What to expect

This tour offers you a true creme-de-la-creme experience of the Highlands and the wonders within it. First you'll head to gorgeous Pitlochry, a typical Highland town where you can enjoy the scenery and try some traditional home-bakes. Back aboard the bus you will journey through the wild and luscious landscape provided by the Cairngorms National Park.

If you haven't heard of Loch Ness then you're in for a fantastic surprise. This infamous Loch is said to be home to Nessie, a serpent-like monster whose presence (or lack thereof) attracts visitors from all over the world. You can take a boat cruise on the loch itself, taking in the scenery before arriving at Urquhart Castle, the ruins of which are beautiful and steeped in history. Explore here to your heart's content before heading to Drumnadrochit, where there are a number of visitor attractions and delicious lunch spots.

The final chapter of this tour takes you to dramatic and gorgeous Glen Coe, a hive of natural beauty and Scottish history. The famous MacDonald Clan were brutally massacred here, and your guide will tell you of other such fascinating tales including the real story of Braveheart, William Wallace as you journey through the Highlands. The fun isn't over though, as you will drive past beautiful Stirling, and its castle which sits above the city atop its own hill, surrounded by mountainous greenery on your way home.
