Loch Ness and the Scottish Highlands Day Tour from Edinburgh

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Take the ultimate Scotland tour and see for yourself if the Loch Ness Monster is lurking under the water. During your journey you will catch views of Stirling Castle and The Wallace Monument
  • Save hours behind the wheel, as you explore Scotland's Highland heart
  • Hear the haunting tale of the Glen Coe massacre from your guide
  • Discover Loch Ness—an optional cruise features underwater imaging!
  • See glens, lochs, moors, and villages from a comfortable private coach
What to Expect
Your private coach will collect you from your central Edinburgh hotel and head straight for the north of Scotland. Break the journey at the pretty Highland hamlet of Kilmahog, where you’ll see long-haired Highland cattle. From here, head over rugged Rannoch Moor to Glen Coe, the beautiful valley where soldiers slaughtered the MacDonald clan in 1692.

On arrival at Loch Ness, choose whether to soak up the atmosphere in the village of Fort Augustus, explore the shores, or join an optional boat cruise—fans of the Loch Ness Monster will love the boat with sonar imaging.

From here, journey back to Edinburgh, savoring the scenery of Loch Laggan and stopping in the charming Victorian town of Pitlochry. Cross the Forth Road Bridge, with views of the rail bridge, to Edinburgh, where your coach drops you at a convenient central location.
