What to expect

As you head towards the beautiful city of Stirling, you will enjoy beautiful nature as your experienced guide will tell you the dramatic tales of William Wallace, made famous by Braveheart, and the turbulent times he lived in. Next you will head through rugged scenery to an even wilder Glen Coe, where you’ll feel the past come to life as your guide tells you about the bloody massacre of the MacDonald Clan.

Loch Ness is world famous and you'll discover why as you head to quaint Fort Augustus located at the Loch's south end, taking in its immensity and learning about its mysterious past as you go. Why not take part in the sightseeing cruise of the loch, passing Cherry Island and Fort Augustus Abbey, and maybe even spotting the legendary monster who allegedly resides within its banks?

You'll then travel through wild and breathtaking Cairngorms National Park en route to gorgeous Pitlochry, a highland town on the banks of the River Tummel before heading back to Edinburgh via UNESCO World Heritage Site Forth Railway Bridge.
