Itinerary

01

DAY 1: EDINBURGH TO LOCH NESS

Tour starts 8:15am. From Edinburgh, we head north to explore the forests and salmon packed rivers of Perthshire and Dunkeld with its mighty cathedral in the heart of Macbeth country. Then you have a chance to sample Scotland's national drink, a wee dram of whisky at a Highland distillery. Onto Clava Cairns and Culloden Battlefield, they both have dramatic history of their own but have been once again thrust into the limelight by the hit series Outlander.

DAY 2: LOCH NESS TO EDINBURGH

We head south to mysterious and haunting Glencoe also known as the ‘Weeping Glen’. Stunningly beautiful, it has been the backdrop for movies including Harry Potter, Braveheart, Rob Roy and more recently Skyfall. We cross the wilds of Rannoch Moor towards the Lowlands and on past Doune Castle (as seen in Outlander and Game of Thrones) and historic Stirling, arriving back in Edinburgh approximately 17:30.
