2 travellers
Capture the rugged landscape the Scottish Highlands is famous for—and perhaps catch a glimpse of the mysterious Loch Ness Monster—on this full-day guided tour from Edinburgh that’s perfect for nature lovers. This guided tour eliminates the hassle of dealing with infrequent public transport or the expense of hiring a car. And, unlike other tours of the area, it includes a Scottish picnic lunch.
  • Enjoy a Scottish picnic lunch on the shores of Loch Ness
  • See the Forth Bridges, Stirling Castle, Rannoch Moor, and the Trossachs
  • Learn the savage history of beautiful Glencoe from your local guide
  • Photograph Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest mountain
What to Expect
Board your coach in central Edinburgh and pass historic Stirling Castle, the Trossachs, and Rannoch Moor to Glencoe, where your guide explains the savage tale of the MacDonald clan, slaughtered here by British soldiers in 1692. Continue through Fort William, photograph Britain’s highest mountain, 4,413-foot (1345-meter) Ben Nevis, and follow the Great Glen to the village of Fort Augustus on the shores of the famous Loch Ness. Here, you get free time to explore the waterfront, look for the monster that some believe resides in these dark waters, or relax with your picnic lunch. As you return to central Edinburgh, savor views of Loch Laggan, explore Highland village, and glimpse the Forth Bridges. Your tour returns you to a central Edinburgh location.

Caitlin was a fantastic guide and driver for our day trip from Edinburgh! She's a great storyteller and really kept me interested throughout the whole day. You spend quite a bit of time on the bus with this trip, but with the beautiful views of the Highlands, Caitlin's stories

We did the loch Ness tour as well as the loch Lomond and Stirling castle tour, with Gill and Yvonne. Both were extremely informative, very welcoming and happy to answer any questions we had. Loch Ness one day tour is a long day on the bus but with amazing scenery and the loch

I am doing UK tour with my wife and this tour was best we could do to round up our Scotland tour part. Yvonne was fun and communicative with great stories and driving skills. Tour itself is really covering nice areas and stops to enjoy it fully and fall in love with Scotland!

This is a perfect day tour from Edinburgh. Kylie was our tour guide, and she did an amazing job. Sweet and funny with her fascinating stories of Highlands history, she also did a bang up job driving the large bus through the windy countryside!
