Totally awesome 3 day adventure! So much to see and do on this epic tour. This is the real Scottish highland experience that will amaze you everywhere we go and everytime we turn. Discover landscapes, seascapes, Lochs & Glens, castles and whisky distilleries. The first day we make our way up to the legendary Loch Ness. Having a nice variety of stops in-between and we arrive at Loch Ness for 2 night stay.

Day 2 we drive onto the Isle of Skye for you to explore this magical island. Steeped in history and myth, stunning viewpoints and eagles above. Other possible optional extrason this day, include the Talisker distillery, a sea boat cruise and the Eilean Donan castle.

Day 3 we drive down the main West coast road, which is probably the longest continious most stunning route in Scotland you can imagine. Including Glencoe and Glen Etive and Loch Lomond then back to Glasgow.
