2 Day tour of Scotland


Leaving Edinburgh/Glasgow, we pass Stirling Castle and the National Wallace Monument prior to our first photo stop at 13th century Doune Castle.
Protecting the gateway to the Highlands the medieval castle has recently been seen as Castle Leoch in Outlander, Winterfell in Game of Thrones. As we continue north the mountains and lochs provide a dramatic backdrop for our journey to Glen Coe, perhaps the most famous of all Scotland's glens. From here we start to travel all the way along the Great Glen and into Inverness for the night.

In the morning it's only a short drive to Culloden Moor where the Jacobites were finally defeated by government soldiers in 1746, the last battle to be fought on British soil.
From there we visit one of Scotland's most evocative and sacred prehistoric sites, the nearby 4000 year old stone circles and burial mounds at Clava Cairns.
From Calva we will then travel down through the Cairngorm Mountains, Highland Perthshire and back to Edinburgh or Glasgow.

A Recent Review of this tour

Thank you, Ally! Your historical knowledge, and love of the Scotland, makes for a great trip for my family. The kindness, and respect you showed to my father, was greatly appreciated. We all had a good time, learning more about Scotland, and seeing the site, and of course "Outlander". I am sorry I was never able to say "Loch" correctly, so that means we have to go another tour. Sincerely, Jolie
