The tour starts from Edinburgh and heads towards Stirling, catching views of the castle and The Wallace Monument. Continuing towards Callander where you'll have your morning coffee stop and the chance to see some Highland Cattle also known as a Hairy Coo.
Your journey continues northwards into the Highlands over Rannoch Moor until you come to the dark brooding Pass of Glencoe where you'll stop for a photo opportunity, and hear the haunting story of the famous massacre of 1692.
After crossing Loch Leven at Ballachulish, you'll get some free time to grab lunch in the Fort William area before following the course of the Caledonian Canal up the Great Glen to Fort Augustus on Loch Ness. Here you'll cruise on the loch for an hour or so, or enjoy the tranquil little village on the banks of Loch Ness.
After the stop at Fort Augustus and Loch Ness, we'll start heading back south. You'll pass by Loch Laggan, the set for the internationally recognised 'Monarch of the Glen', before making a stop in picturesque Pitlochry, a beautiful Victorian resort town.
As we journey past Perth and through the Kingdom of Fife, we'll cross the Forth Road Bridge alongside the magnificent Forth Railway Bridge before arriving back in Edinburgh.
