After departing from a central Edinburgh location, travel past Stirling Castle on the way to your first stop, Kilmahog, home to the famous Highland Cows. As you continue northward, catch sight of the scenery of Rannoch Moor and Glen Coe, where you can take a short break for photo opportunities.

Stop for lunch at Fort William via Loch Linhe, where you can absorb unobstructed views of Ben Nevis, one of Scotland’s highest mountains.
