3 Day Highland Explorer Tour | Detail
Day 1 is a fabulous introduction to the Scottish landscape. Starting in Edinburgh we head west, spending time exploring the mountains, glens, lochs and rivers of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Continuing west over the Rest and Be Thankful we will stop at the viewpoint to admire the view before reaching Inveraray where we will have lunch. Heading north we travel over desolate Rannoch Moor; we will take time to stop in Glencoe to learn about the grim massacre of 1692.
Day 2 takes in the wonderful Highland town of Fort William, then onto the charming village of Fort Augustus on the shores of Loch Ness where we will stop to have lunch and to take in the atmosphere. Keep your eyes peeled for the legend of Nessie as we travel the 23 miles up Loch Ness arriving in Inverness –“The Capital of the Highlands”.
Day 3 boasts a morning visit to Culloden Battlefield where the last battle to be fought on British soil was held in 1746. From here we move south into the Cairngorms National Park where we will have the opportunity to take in the atmosphere and hopefully view some Scottish wildlife before heading for the Victorian tourist town of Pitlochry where we will have lunch. Heading even further south we pass through the historic village of Dunkeld with its ancient cathedral and beautiful riverside walks before finishing back in Edinburgh.
