What you can expect

On this day trip through the Highlands, take in the natural beauty of Loch Ness, try to spot the famed Nessie, and a get a snippet of Scotland's rich history at dramatic Glencoe. Admire several natural marvels such as the mighty Ben Nevis and the Great Glen before visiting Perthshire.

Begin with a scenic drive by the imposing ramparts of Stirling Castle and through the Trossachs—Rob Roy country. After crossing the wilderness of Rannoch Moor, stop briefly at Glencoe—the site of a notorious massacre in 1692. Then journey through Fort William passing Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, and into the Great Glen—a series of glens running 62 miles (100 km).

Once you arrive at Fort Augustus on the banks of Loch Ness, savour a picnic lunch with mineral water, fresh sandwiches, and shortbread—a taste of Scotland. You also have a chance to explore and walk through the charming Highland village, relax by the Caledonian Canal, or take a cruise on the loch. Don't forget to look for Nessie, the mythical creature reputed to live in the deep waters.

Your return journey takes you past the shimmering Loch Laggan before you ascend over the rugged and isolated Drumochter Pass and into Perthshire—a lush land of forests, rivers, and mountains. Get a glimpse of the spectacular Forth bridges before arriving in Edinburgh.
