About this experience

Day 1: Edinburgh – Loch Ness

We depart Edinburgh at 8:30am. As we head out of the city, catch a glimpse of the impressive Forth Road Bridges. Our first stop of the day is Dunkeld in the heart of Perthshire. Known for its 13th century cathedral, this is the perfect spot to fuel up with a coffee and pastry from a charming local bakery. We’ll visit a Highland whisky distillery to discover how Scotland’s most famous drink is produced. Visit one of the inspirations behind Outlander - the Clava Cairns standing stones! These stones stand proudly at 10 feet tall and are known for being a bronze age burial ground. Next we arrive at one of the most somber locations in Scotland, Culloden Battlefield. The battleground remains mostly untouched to pay respect to those who lost their lives in the final Jacobite Uprising of 1746. Our final stop of the day is Loch Ness - see if you can spot Nessie!
Overnight Fort Augustus

Day 2: Isle of Skye

Our first stop of day 2 is at the inspiring Dundreggan Rewilding Centre where we take a refreshing walk through Scotland's ancient pine forest. Eilean Donan Castle; the most photographed castle in Scotland and home to Clan Macleod. Then we visit Sligachan. According to legend, the waters under Sligachan Old Bridge offer eternal youth. Why not give it a go for yourself? Enjoy some free time in Portree to grab some lunch and have a wander around. Climb the Old Man of Storr for one of the best views in Scotland. Skye is full of legends and faerie stories, and this is the perfect spot to see the magic for yourself. Next we visit Kilt Rock, known for resembling - you've guessed it - a kilt. It's the perfect spot to breathe some sea air and snap a photo of the impressive Mealt Falls before heading back to Fort Augustus for the night.
Overnight Fort Augustus

Day 3: Loch Ness to Edinburgh

We make a stop at the Commando Memorial dedicated to the men of the original British Commando Forces raised during World War II. Look out for Ben Nevis in the distance. We make a comfort stop in Spean Bridge before continuing our journey back to the lowlands. Next, one of the most iconic sights in Scotland - Glencoe. Known for its dramatic peaks, Glencoe is one of the most ethereal spots in Scotland. Hear about the legend of the 3 sisters, and the backdrop famously used in the Skyfall movie. We stop for lunch in a charming Highland village before the final leg of our tour. Our last stop is in Falkirk to see the 30m tall steel horse heads which represent the shapeshifting and majestic Kelpies. We arrive back in Edinburgh at approx. 5:30pm.
