Loch Ness and the Highlands Small Group Day Tour from Edinburgh

The Scottish Highlands are home to some of the most spectacular views in all the British Isles. On this Loch Ness small-group tour you’ll experience many of them. But you won’t need to worry about driving, parking, or identifying what you’re seeing: Your local driver-guide will do all that, while you just sit back and relax.

What to Expect

Meet your guide and small group in Central Edinburgh. As you journey past Linlithgow Palace, Stirling Castle, Doune Castle, and the National Wallace Monument, your guide will explain the true story behind the movie Braveheart.

After a short break in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, capture photos of Loch Tulla, Glen Coe, and 4,413-foot (1,344-meter) Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, and travel the Caledonian Canal. At Loch Ness, hunt for Nessie from the shores of the loch or rent a boat to search the waters.

Travel back to Edinburgh through Glen Spean and along Loch Laggan: if time permits, enjoy a short escorted woodland walk in the Cairngorms National Park. Head south through the Grampian Mountains to Blair Castle, then stop in the Highlands for a village stroll.

After crossing the Forth Road Bridge, with views of the Forth Rail Bridge, your tour concludes at Waterloo Place.

Very long

This tour was long and had some highlights including seeing the highlands and Loch Ness. Others may find it entirely enjoyable but it was too much for us. Would have preferred fewer stops to reduce the overall time of the tour.
