Glencoe, Loch Ness, and The Highlands Tour from Edinburgh
US$56,35
Overview
Pack as much as you can into just one day on an excursion to the Scottish Highlands from Edinburgh, ideal for travelers with limited time. Traveling by coach, zip between Highland highlights such as Glen Coe, Rannoch Moor, and Ben Nevis with complete ease. During this tour, your guide brings to life the legends and folklore that make the Highlands so magical, a perfect choice for history buffs.
What to Expect

After departing from a central Edinburgh location, travel past Stirling Castle on the way to your first stop, Kilmahog, home to the famous Highland Cows. As you continue northward, catch sight of the scenery of Rannoch Moor and Glen Coe, where you can take a short break for photo opportunities.

Stop for lunch at Fort William via Loch Linhe, where you can absorb unobstructed views of Ben Nevis, one of Scotland’s highest mountains. Your next stop is Loch Ness, home of the legendary Loch Ness Monster, where you can enjoy free time for exploring. Opt to take a boat ride to the ruins of Urquhart Castle (own expense).

Return to Edinburgh via Inverness and the Grampian Mountains for drop-off at your original departure point.

It was just too long on the bus. 12 1/2 hours. We got home at 8:15pm and hadn't had a dinner stop. They could take a shorter route up to the highlands.More
