Description

Learn about the mysteries and myths of Loch Ness, visit Scottish estuaries, and gaze at some of the most breathtaking scenery of the Scottish Highlands. Scotland is famed for its monstrous lake inhabitant and outstanding natural beauty; uncover both on this tour.

Leaving from Edinburgh, head north toward the Highlands on a comfortable coach. Ride over the red steel supports of the Fourth Railway Bridge and make a quick stop in Pitlochry to savor a tasty homemade treat from local bakers.

Delve further into the rugged wilderness as you reach Cairngorm National Park and soak up the views of dramatic, craggy cliffs and boggy, moss-covered hillsides. From the park, head to Fort Augustus and the banks of the infamous Loch Ness. Enjoy a break for lunch or opt to board a ferry boat for a closer look at the mysterious waters that are purported to hide the mythical aquatic creature. Just up the road, enter the stunning beauty of Glen Coe’s steep, green hillsides. As you take in the sights, listen to your guide tell stories of the valley’s bloody history and the 17th century massacre of the MacDonald clan.

On your return to Edinburgh, see the medieval city of Stirling with its towering fairy-tale castle. Finish your tour with a solemn reflection at the William William Walace Monument as your guide offers insightful commentary about the exploits of this adventurous legend who provided the inspiration for the film Braveheart.

Please note on December 26 neither Urquhart Castle or the Loch Ness cruise are available

Erin was an excellent guide. She had a baby Loch Ness monster on the dashboard to help us find the correct bus. The choice of music between the narration on the tour was great.

I arrived at the Highland Experience office about 20 minutes before the tour and gave the woman at the desk my name. She said we were not booked for the tour. I showed her my ticket that included a bar code. She looked at it and said oh you booked it through Expedia and we have problems in a voice that I interpreted to be the problem was my fault as I should have been smarter then that. We also got the impression that as far as she was concerned we should just move on so she could see the next customer. The man sitting next to her said he would see what he could do to get us on the English bus but if not he could put us on the Spanish bus leaving at the same time. Even though that was not as good as the English bus we said yes. I then went to visit with the Spanish bus driver who spoke perfect English and told him we were probably going to go with him on the Spanish bus. The male employee working at the desk also visited with the Spanish diver. At a couple minutes after the buses wer

Josh, the tour guide, and Fran, the driver were both excellent. Josh managed to combine being informative, entertaining and open to questions perfectly. The countryside was stunning. Well worth doing.
