Loch Ness & The Highlands 1 Day Tour from Edinburgh or Glasgow


Once we depart Edinburgh, we shall travel north towards Stirling, where we can see the castle and the Wallace Monument,
This area is where William Wallace defeated the English army in 1297.
From here, the scenery changes dramatically as you venture further into the Highlands. The rolling hills of the lowlands transform into shimmering lochs, rugged mountains, and forest-filled glens. The alluring beauty makes it easy to forget this was once a battleground of the fiercely territorial Highland clans.
We will be travelling through and past The Trossachs, Rannoch Moor to the famous Glen Coe where the notorious massacre of the MacDonald Clan was carried out.
We will now be at the start of the Great Glen, where every glen meets every loch and Loch Ness sits right at the top,
From Loch Ness, you head south through the Cairngorm mountains National Park. Your route travels alongside Loch Laggan, past 13th century Blair Castle. we continue south through the forests of Perthshire before we arrive back in Edinburgh
