Explore Loch Ness and The Highlands with Me!


On this 2 day tour, you experience some of Scotland's most beautiful scenery, from rolling hills, lochs, monsters and rugged coastlines this tour has it all! Passing through the mountain range of Glencoe is breathtaking and a walk through the tranquil Hidden Glen is a wonderful experience. Another must-see is Ben Nevis towering over the town of Fort William which is the gateway to Scotland's Great Glen. This tour passes the magical Loch Lochy before reaching the iconic Urquhart Castle on the shores of imposing Loch Ness, this dark and mysterious body of water is home to Scotland's monster, The Loch Ness Monster. The following day is packed full of adventure and history, visiting the eerie Culloden Battlefield where many brave Highlanders lost their life in 1746 in The Jacobite Uprising. Clava Cairns, a 4000-year-old Bronze Age circular tomb is a firm favorite for Outlander fans. Also on this 2-day tour is a visit to the stunning Cairngorm National Park, the largest in Scotland. I can customize this tour.

Itinerary

day 1: Collection from Glasgow at 9am, driving to conservation village of Luss on the Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond, gentle walk around this quaint village with me, enjoying fabulous view of Ben Lomond, the most Westerly Munro mountain in Scotland. Next stop is the fabulous Falls of Falloch at the top of Loch Lomond before driving 1 hour to The 3 Sisters at Glencoe, 20-minute walk to the Hidden Glen. Drive to Inverlochy Castle, a ruined castle at the start of The Great Glen, lunch at The Glengarry Hotel. Next stop is Urquhart Castle, where most sightings of the elusive 'Nessie' have taken place. Overnight stay in Inverness.
