Get on our medium size luxury coach to start the adventure! Since the tour involves cross-country driving, a big part of the trip will be on the bus. Thankfully, your guide will make the most of that time to provide you with essential Scottish history! At the end of the tour, you will not only have seen the best and some of the most beautiful areas in Scotland, but you will be an expert in Scottish history and traditions.

As you pass Stirling Castle, you will hear the stories of the Independence Wars between England and Scotland, where William Wallace and Robert The Bruce played a major role.

Your first stop will be in the small town of Callander, which could not be in a better location: at the foot of the Trossachs, a beautiful Natural Reserve in Scotland. Loch Lomond is just around the corner, along with the National Park, which you will see from the bus.

After that, you will feel like James Bond in Skyfall or Harry Potter when passing through the incredible valley of Glencoe. You will have a little bit of time to take some photos, but you better get ready to hear the horrible things that happened here to the Clan MacDonald that will follow up.

After Fort William, the tour will arrive at the south bank of Loch Ness, the most famous attraction in Scotland. We will stop at Fort Augustus for a relaxing lunch. If you are up for it, you have the option of booking an optional 1-hour cruise to Loch Ness from here.

Once you have experienced Loch Ness, we will start our way back, but luckily, there are still plenty of things to see!

We make through the Great Glen towards the Commando Memorial, erected to the remembrance of the Royal Marine Commandos who trained there during WWII. After that, you will enter the beautiful Cairngorms National Park and discover the “Monarch of the Glen” country.

Finally, make a brief stop in the charming Victorian town of Pitlochry, before making your way back to Edinburgh city centre, arriving around 8:00 PM.

Jean is a great tour guide. Quite knowledgeable and really enjoys every moment with his group. He took us around Edinburgh, to every magical corner. Highly recommended.

Is a funny way to know a bit of Edinburg. The tour is during night and this gives you a better idea of Edinburg legends.
