What to expect

Visit the famous Loch Ness and travel through the beautiful Highlands of Scotland on this day trip from Edinburgh!

Your tour will set off from Edinburgh, headed towards Stirling. Along the way you'll see Stirling Castle as well as the Wallace Monument. The bus will continue towards Callander for a morning coffee stop before moving northwards into the Highlands. You'll pass over Rannoch Moor and stop for photos at the foreboding Pass of Glencoe. Your guide will also share the haunting story of the famous 1692 massacre.

The bus will cross Loch Leven at Ballachulish and stop in the Fort William area for lunch. Next, you'll follow the Caledonian Canal up the Great Glen to Fort Augustus on Loch Ness. At the Loch, you have the choice of going on an hour-long cruise or simply taking a walk around. Watch out for the monster!

Afterward, you'll begin your return trip to Edinburgh. You'll pass by Loch Laggan, which was used as the set for Monarch of the Glen, and stop in the picturesque village of Pitlochry. You'll have a chance to stroll through this delightful Victorian resort town before heading past Perth, going through the Kingdom of Fife and finally crossing the Forth Road Bridge.
