Loch Ness, Glencoe and the Highlands
These areas are carefully selected for their outstanding natural beauty. We will tour through two of our most famous National Parks. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs was Scotland's first and we will drive the entire length of Loch Lomond. As we cross into the Highlands you'll see a scattering of islands forming a line across the loch and Ben Lomond towering in the distance.
Later in our tour we shall tour through the Cairngorm National Park as we make our way southwards from Inverness. This area is famed for its alpine-like scenery, crystal clear lochs and pretty villages. The four peaks of the Cairngorm Mountains will dominate our travels through the park - the remoteness of this area providing the ideal home for golden eagles, capercaillie and a host of rare wildlife.
Glen Coe and Fort William
After crossing the bleak wilderness of Rannoch Moor we will make the descent into Glen Coe where the mountain grandeur that surrounds us offers exciting scenery and history. Glen Coe is most famously known for the massacre of the resident MacDonald Clan by Campbell troops in 1692. The story that led to this infamous act will captivate you. After time for photographs our coach continues along the banks of Loch Linnhe to Fort William.
Dark, deep and narrow mysterious Loch Ness is bound to impress. It extends for 24 miles (38 km) and is up to 700 feet (212 m) deep. It's said that Loch Ness contains more freshwater than the lakes of England and Wales combined!
Loch Ness is, almost certainly, most famous for its elusive resident - Nessie. On this tour you'll have the option enjoying a short sail on the loch* when you can mount your own Monster spotting adventure. As well as sailing the dark waters of the loch the cruise will provide wonderful views of Urquhart Castle. This atmospheric castle was once one of Scotland's largest strongholds and it has had a long and bloody history.
